About Fintona Girls' School

Great things come from a small package

Situated in the inner-eastern suburb of Balwyn, Fintona is an independent, non-denominational day school for girls renowned for high academic and personal achievement.

With the extra attention we provide in a small school environment, our girls consistently achieve among the highest VCE and NAPLAN results in Victoria.

Our friendly, supportive and caring environment, together with our broad-based education programs, provide our girls with many experiences to stretch themselves beyond expectation and to cope with life beyond school. Inspired by our exceptional teachers, a Fintona girl will find the confidence to soar and achieve her highest academic and personal aspirations.

Our beautiful school grounds include a mix of historic buildings and modern facilities. The addition of a Middle School House and playground, a state-of-the-art Sports Centre and an Art Precinct provide our girls with even more opportunities to move into the future with confidence and optimism.

Fintona consists of the Early Learning Centre (coeducational), Junior School (Prep to Year 4), Middle School (Year 5 to Year 8) and Senior School (Year 9 to Year 12) to enable a specific academic and pastoral focus. The Early Learning Centre curriculum is based on the Reggio Emilia philosophy, while the International Baccalaureate is taught from ELC to Year 4.
