We Believe in Girls
At Ruyton we foster the individuality of each girl in a caring and safe environment, nurturing her intellectual, physical, social and emotional qualities essential to flourish.
Powerful learning is central to the Ruyton culture, building on our strong academic reputation. We focus on advancing the learning of every girl through the engagement of intellectual curiosity, building knowledge and skills about how to learn and supporting them to be the best learners they can be and exemplary citizens. We believe in real world learning beyond the classroom, collaborating with the wider community to promote growth, discovery and sustainability.
We empower our girls to lead lives of purpose with courage, character and compassion. Through the development of values and action-focused learning they are inspired to pursue equity and justice for self and others. By embracing diversity and raising their voices our girls effect positive change and make a difference.
One Campus. Endless Opportunities.
Our Early Learning Centre, Junior School and Senior School are situated on one campus, emphasising our strength as a connected learning community and enabling many opportunities for collaboration, mentoring and role modelling. The size of Ruyton enables us to know our girls individually and support them in achieving personal best. Our strong connection with Trinity Grammar School provides unique educational opportunities for students across the two schools, particularly through our Year 11 and 12 Co-ordinate Programme.
There is no better way to understand the spirit of Ruyton than to visit us on one of our Open Mornings, one of our School Snapshot sessions, or attend a Principal’s Conversation to experience Ruyton for yourself.
For the full range of our programmes, please contact our Registrar, Mrs Nadine Hibbert, at Registrar Email.
Ruyton is consistent in its performance of academic excellence among the top schools in Victoria. In the last nine years Ruyton has maintained an average median score of 91.55 in its VCE results at Year 12. In 2016 54 percent of girls received ATAR scores of 90 and above. There were three perfect scores of 50. In 2015 46 per cent of girls received ATAR scores of 90 and above. ‘This is not only testament to the hard work and commitment of our girls,’ says Principal Ms Linda Douglas, ‘but also is an endorsement of the dedication and expertise of our teaching staff. With ongoing parent support, this powerful combination produces confident and resourceful young women who are ready to tackle any challenge.’
