At Bacchus Marsh Grammar we have a very clear idea of the kind of environment which fosters the best education. The school believes that learning best occurs when there is a clear structure and a clarity of expectations for students. This approach is seen at both a “whole school level” but of equal importance in a clear and consistent approach to individual teaching and classroom management issues. We also believe that learning best occurs in a calm environment. We look to provide an environment which is both friendly and purposeful.
In a settled environment students are able to concentrate on their learning and the equally important development of positive social skills. A sense of calm is enhanced by a staff who are concerned, clear in their teaching methods and dedicated to developing the individual.
The school’s expectations of students are clear: We want all students to work towards achieving their personal best and developing their individual talents. We will not accept behaviour which interferes with the learning or happiness of others.
A school that serves Bacchus Marsh and beyond.
Bacchus Marsh Grammar’s location makes it a convenient location for many communities. The school runs extensive bus routes across the outer western part of Melbourne and to rural areas to the south and west.
In particular, the school has a strong presence in Bacchus Marsh, Werribee and Hoppers Crossing, Melton, Caroline Springs/Burnside, Sunbury and Gisborne. In line with the school’s commitment to diversity it looks to encourage students from a wide geographical area as it believes it adds greatly to the range of experiences and backgrounds available to the community.
One of the schools strengths is the depth and quality of its pastoral care program.
