Established in 1881, Caulfield Grammar School is a leading independent co-educational school in Melbourne, Australia.
Our purpose is to offer a thriving learning environment that supports our learners to feel empowered, deeply engaged and encouraged to become people of character and contribution. With a passionate vision for innovation in education, we offer a globally-focused curriculum that prepares students with skills for life as they engage with a rigorous learning program to prepare them for whatever the future brings.
Caulfield Grammar provides a progressive and broad curriculum, established on current and emerging theories and innovative practice, from ELC to Year 12, for day students and boarding from Year 9.
We value inclusion and are a non-select entry school. Our academic outcomes stand as a testament to our teaching philosophy and learning practice. We actively seek out examples of international best-practice and innovation in education from which the school can learn as we evolve and adapt to empower our learners.
Our School operates across five campuses. Three are located in the Melbourne metropolitan areas of Wheelers Hill, Caulfield, and Malvern. Two are dedicated experiential campuses. Yarra Junction; located in rural Victoria, focused on sustainability and outdoor education, and Newton Hall Nanjing; our China campus that facilitates our Year 9 Internationalism Program.
We are authorised to implement the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) and an IB World Middle Years Programme (MYP) Candidate school.

Caulfield Grammar has always been a boarding school and is committed to providing a secure, supportive and caring learning environment for girls and boys living away from home.
Caulfield Grammar School’s boarding house is the closest coeducational APS boarding school to the heart of Melbourne, offering boarding for boys and girls – brothers and sisters. Boys and girls share common recreation and dining facilities but are accommodated in separate boarding houses. Students have supervised study blocks in which tutors are available. All living arrangements, including meals, social activities and study are supervised by boarding staff.
Computers are situated throughout the boarding houses and are all linked to the school’s computer network, enabling students to access the school’s online educational resources. Each bedroom within the boarding house has network access for students who wish to bring in their own computer.

At Caulfield Grammar School, we offer a holistic education that provides learners with the foundation for a mind for life.
The school years are some of the most formative and important years in a young person’s life. This is the time when students can learn not just the academic skills required to build the life that’s right for them, but the emotional intelligence and cultural awareness to be able to do so with motivation, resilience and humility.
At Caulfield Grammar School, they will learn within the classroom and beyond, developing a mind that is equipped to thrive and to live their life with passion. It is my aim that every learner can feel a sense of belonging here, and enjoy an authentic experience where they can be not just their true selves, but become the best version of themselves.

Tom Feng, Year 12 Boarder 2020, China
My parents and I came to Australia in 2016. We were attracted to Melbourne because Melbourne is one of the most liveable cities in the world and it is very multicultural.
I came to Caulfield Grammar in Year 9 and found a friendly and supportive community both within the overseas students' group and within the broader community of students and staff. We have students from all over the world - overseas boarders, students whose parents migrated to Australia, and local students who are learning Chinese and German. There is no way a student here could remain invisible or be ignored because there is a strong culture of diversity, tolerance and multiculturalism.
I would also like to highlight Nanjing Campus. Caulfield Grammar has always been passionate about interacting with the other parts of the world through Nanjing and various overseas programs. There I played the role of translator between local Chinese and our students. I found it particularly enjoyable when I saw our students mixing with the local community in the park which demonstrates the School value of ‘Embracing diversity’’.
Shelly Liu, Year 12 Boarder 2020, China
My family and I arrived in Australia in 2016. I was always passionate in exploring the big world and I chose to start my new adventure in Melbourne for its humanities culture and unique lifestyle. I came to CGS by following the advice of my cousin who was a past graduate of Caulfield Grammar. He told me there was an excellent study environment and cultural diversity within the campus which made me looked forward to studying in one of the best co-educational schools in Melbourne.
My highlight is definitely the International Assembly. This assembly is not about how excellent people can be, but more about how diverse Caulfield Grammarians are. I am a terrible dancer, but my first stage experience at Caulfield was presenting K-pop in international assembly. That was the first time I didn’t really care about how bad I looked or how awkward the movements were, but I was more excited at the prospect of getting to learn something new and being part of the positive energy of dance. And more importantly, the cheering from my peers who sat in the auditorium where I found a feeling of acceptance and being valued. This experience helped me to explore more about the meaning of cultural diversity.
We strive to keep our community well informed with events and news of our students and life at Caulfield Grammar. Please visit our website for our news updates caulfieldgs.vic.edu.au/news/.
