    Established in 1898, Christ Church Grammar School is a leading, inner city, independent, coeducational school that provides an outstanding education for 3 - 12 year old children.

    We aspire to be the leading coeducational school for children through to Year 6 by embracing explicit, evidence-based learning; enabling every child to be their best; ensuring our children learn in an environment grounded by love and faith; and by fostering caring, supportive and enduring relationships with children, families and the community.

    We welcome families, not just students. Diversity is celebrated and children, their families and staff are cherished and valued. We develop and nurture trusting relationships based on respect and honesty.

    We are an inclusive community and treasure the unique spirit of each and every child. Quality teaching and learning, high expectations and supportive relationships encourage our young children to develop in character and to aspire to be their very best.

    Our high-quality curriculum ensures that our teaching and learning program is both rigorous and enjoyable. We challenge our students to achieve their very best and have small class sizes to maximise student/teacher engagement.

    From Prep onwards, specialist teachers work with our children in a range of areas including the arts, music, languages and physical education.

    We are proud of our connection with Christ Church South Yarra and are the only coeducational Anglican parish school in Victoria for 3 - 12 year olds. We embed the Anglican faith and ethos into our daily practice, welcoming those of all faiths and none.

    At Christ Church Grammar School we know that children learn best when their individual needs are identified and addressed in a nurturing, supportive and encouraging environment with positive role models.

    We understand the importance of connections within the broader community and value our partnerships with the 2/14th Australian Field Regiment, the Shrine of Remembrance. We also partner with Red Dust Role Models and the Areyonga School, in a remote indigenous community in the Northern Territory. 

    English Language, Mathematics, Science, Technology, Studies of Society and the Environment, the Arts, Physical Education, Sport, Mandarin Chinese or French, Music, Religious Education, Computer Studies and library sessions.
    Separate area with security-coded doors and its own playground for 3 and 4 Year Old programs. Specialist classrooms for music, visual arts, computer studies, library and individual difference education in the main school.
    We offer an extensive cocurricular progarm, including the following:

    This after school class introduces children to gymnastics and shows them the benefits of building strong foundations through gymnastics skills. Gymnastics is a fun and challenging sport that builds strong foundations and fundamental movement patterns, as well as coordination and partner work. It is also provides a great foundation for other sports and activities.

    2018 NAPLAN Results

    NAPLAN results for 2018 demonstrate that our students continue to perform above the state average in all areas tested.

    Across all areas, the Year 3 cohort have maintained or grown from 2017.

    In Year 5, our results showed significant growth in Reading, Grammar and Punctuation and Numeracy. It is of particular interest that we are also seeing an upward trend in Writing and Spelling, as these, along with Grammar, have been areas identified as our focus for improvement. As a result, explicit, differentiated programs have been taught across the school.

    Five-year trend graphs provide data over a period of time and, whilst results vary, depending on the cohort, it is pleasing to note that, in all areas, we have observed a rising trend.
