Ballarat Grammar is one of regional Australia’s leading co-educational schools with a proud history dating back to 1877 and a flourishing community of over 1,500 students from 6 months to Year 12, including around 250 boarders.

With three campuses, an extensive range of first-class facilities and a range of challenging and diverse programs, we provide rich opportunities for our students to learn to thrive.

The ‘essence of Grammar’ is based on wellbeing. Steeped in the Anglican tradition, we invest our values and focus in preparing our students to develop into positive and resilient individuals intent on establishing their own pathway in the world.

We want our students to graduate with a deep understanding of the world and of people in it. As an active member school of Round Square our students are supported to take on challenges that demand courage, generosity, imagination, principle and resolution.

We take tremendous pride in maintaining a dedicated team of staff and we seek to employ teachers of the highest calibre. Our experienced Board of Directors is committed to ensuring all students are provided with the very best opportunities and potential for growth.

Learning and Behavioural Values

This describes who we are, what we value and what we strive for. The ‘Essence of Grammar’ is the foundation that underpins our approach to all aspects of learning and growth.

We look to a positive future from a proud tradition. Our relationships are based on warmth, respect and trust.

We’re passionate about learning in all areas of our lives. We strive for academic excellence, knowing that it takes hard work over a long period of time.

Beyond the classroom, we love exploring new learning opportunities while continuing to extend ourselves in areas that are already familiar. We’re developing the confidence to take risks with our learning and the skills to bounce back when things don’t go as well as we’d like.

We welcome people from many backgrounds and look out for each other because that’s what makes our community strong.
