The Knox School - About Us

The Knox School is an independent, values-driven school for girls and boys from Early Learning to Year 12. We are on eight beautiful hectares just 500 metres from the EastLink Burwood Highway interchange. The Knox school celebrates each person’s unique spirit without any religious affiliation.

The world our children will inherit is a world of complexity and ever-changing innovation. A world where it is insufficient to have knowledge and ideas without the skills and attitudes to apply the knowledge and implement the ideas.

The Knox School is committed to fostering the cultivation of an adaptive set of skills and values that, together with knowledge from the traditional disciplines, will equip students to embrace change as opportunity.

To be well educated no longer refers solely to an education in mathematics, science and the arts; it demands the infusion of the 6Cs – creativity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, character and contribution – at age and context appropriate opportunities that combine to nurture the successful self-regulated learner and promote self-efficacy.

The Knox School aims to develop a dynamic education, with dynamic teachers at its heart. Teachers who connect, shape, provoke and position their students to thrive in an adaptive global environment; who activate engaging, demanding and rewarding learning, and support students to advocate for themselves, contribute to their communities and thrive as challenge becomes opportunity.
