Alphington Grammar School

Alphington VIC, Melbourne Northern Suburbs

Established in 1989, Alphington Grammar School is a non-denominational, coeducational independent school offering three-year-old Early Learning to Year 12.

Alphington Grammar is a young school on the move. Our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics facilities showcase our commitment to providing innovative educational learning spaces integrated with state-of-the-art facilities with access to educators from around the world. This centre will meet the needs of both our primary and secondary students and extend their STEM opportunities in modern, purpose-built facilities.

Our new Library and Education Resource Centre comprises multiple zones designed to deliver targeted and unique learning experiences. The Multifunction Room is equipped with a smartboard and has been designed to accommodate class groups, as well as delivering spaces for quiet reading. The White Zone is a space complete with whiteboard walls and provides a great space for students to brainstorm and collaborate on their learning. Sensory zones have been created to provide quiet reading areas for students. Spaces throughout the library cater for individual study, booths for group work and study zones. The Primary Zone delivers a space that is a visually engaging and stimulating area, with face-out displays and little nooks that provide our younger students a quiet place to read.

As an ELC–12 school, we believe that the development of skills at all stages of life will inspire curiosity, creativity and entrepreneurship. We already have highly able students on accelerated programs such as ASPIRE, the ALPHA Initiative and early entry VCE units who are currently working on projects of their own or partnering with university academics to solve community, humanitarian and global issues.

With the aim of creating diverse curriculum offerings that engages learners of all ages, we believe, students at Alphington Grammar will be work ready and able to contribute actively beyond their time at school.

Our vision is underpinned by new areas of learning, enhanced curriculum offerings and facilities that will continue to deliver quality education to generations to come. Our goal is to provide more students with the skills to excel while developing strong, independent, critical and creative thinking skills.

With an increasing demand in a knowledge-based economy and a rapidly changing world, we are committed to ensuring our students receive every opportunity to acquire and develop the necessary skills to succeed in the world they are helping shape.

We believe the role of educating young children is about empowering them to become responsible citizens of the future, with global understandings. At Alphington, we offer a wide range of co-curricular opportunities, with more than 60 clubs and societies across the primary and secondary school.

At Alphington, learning is more than facts and figures. We are committed to preparing future adults, who excel in their chosen path, and capable of navigating the world they encounter with purpose, creativity, integrity, respect and compassion.
