Choosing the right school for your daughter is a significant decision. You want her to be challenged academically in a safe and nurturing environment. You want her to have access to a plethora of opportunities. You want her to flourish intellectually, socially and spiritually. You want her to belong. You want her to be ready for the future.
Welcome to Strathcona.
Strathcona Girls Grammar School is a unique school housed over three separate campuses catering for girls and boys in the Early Learning Centre, and girls from Prep to Year 12.
Girls in Year 9 are accommodated at their own campus. Located on the Banks of the Yarra River in Hawthorn, Tay Creggan was the first designated campus for Year 9 girls in Australia.
We are experts in girls’ education
Our curriculum, academic programs, pastoral care programs and co-curricular offerings have been carefully crafted by experts and are underpinned by the latest research. Our Global Links Program provides opportunities for international and domestic exchanges and travel, whilst our innovative co-curricular programs foster lifelong passions for music, sport, drama, dance and public speaking.
We also draw on the expertise of our Advanced Learning Centre that includes speech pathologists, wellbeing experts and specialist educators to assist and advance learning within the whole student population.
Your daughter will be known
We understand that students are more than just learners: they’re individuals. We take the time to understand your daughter as a learner — her strengths, weaknesses and interests — in order to help her flourish inside and outside the classroom.
At every stage of their education, Strathcona girls benefit from our state-of-the-art learning, sporting, arts and multi-media facilities, including:
