Since 1877, Tintern Grammar has been a leader in the fields of teaching, learning and the care and development of each and every child. Our school is set on 40 acres of beautiful tree-lined grounds, with magnificent sporting facilities and fields and even own our own working farm.
Tintern Grammar's Parallel Learning Model sees students educated in both co-educational and single gender settings according to their age and stage.
Our younger students learn in separate gender classes at an age when gender tends to play a greater role in influencing learning styles. This allows us to tailor our teaching methods to create optimal learning and pastoral environments to support each child. Our students feel more confident to take risks, be academically courageous and challenge themselves in a supportive and nurturing environment.
Students are introduced into co-educational classes when social development is an important part of their growth and maturation with the move to more inquiry based and independent learning, as they prepare for future study and work pathways.
Providing single gender and mixed classes on a co-educational campus gives families the perfect balance between the academic and social development of their children. This allows us to tailor teaching methods to create optimal learning and pastoral environments to support each gender at every stage. Our vision is for our young women and men to seek excellence and strive with confidence and purpose to create a better world.
Early Learning Centre (ELC)
We offer part-time and full-time three-year-old and pre-Prep (four-year-old) programs in our ELC that combine teacher-led learning with play. Our youngest learners develop social, emotional, physical and intellectual skills, providing a solid foundation for their academic journey.
Junior Schools (Prep to Year 6)
Our Girls’ and Boys’ Junior Schools are an engaging and exciting place to learn. Our students receive the unique benefit of learning in tailored, gender-specific classrooms, while still taking part in planned activities on a co-educational campus.
Middle Schools (Years 7 to 9)
Our Middle Schools focus on academic and personal growth, health, pastoral care and gender-specific challenges. We offer elective subjects including performing arts, languages and ICT. Our Camps and Outdoor Education program builds skills of resilience, independence and responsibility.
Senior College (Years 10 to 12)
We provide choice and balance for students in the Senior College offering three study pathways — VCE, International Baccalaureate and VCE/VET, as well as extensive course and careers guidance, and university preparation.
Every child matters to us. By knowing and caring for each student, we nurture them to achieve their best and are committed to meeting the individual needs of all our students. This includes challenging highly able children through Horizon, an enrichment program for students who display an enhanced level of learning.
Tintern has a strong record of success, both academically and more generally. We are proud of our passionate, highly qualified staff who engage, inspire and support our students in their learning and social development. In addition to core learning we offer students a broad range of co-curricular activities, including sport, outdoor education, young farmers, performing arts, debating, music and more.
Our campus is located within 40 acres of treed, landscaped grounds, with extensive playing fields, a gymnasium, swimming pool and even our own farm. We pride ourselves on our exceptional staff, our curricular and co-curricular offerings, and our commitment to community and belonging.
