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.


About Us

Ruyton recognises the importance of providing the best possible learning environment for its students and staff.
Ruyton has state-of-the-art learning centres: a Library Resource Centre, the Prue Gillies Building, the Margaret McRae Centre, the Year 11 and Year 12 Centre, and a recently redeveloped Junior School. The Ruyton Aquatic Centre completes the School’s comprehensive Physical Education, Health and Wellbeing facility.
We ensure that every aspect of teaching and support is designed around an individual girl’s needs. This enhances student engagement, motivation and commitment to learning. It underpins a collaboration and rich involvement between the girls and staff that achieves the very best individual results.

The curriculum at Ruyton is wide-ranging, challenging and creative, with an emphasis on personalised learning. We continue to develop innovative programmes to expand the learning experience for girls and are committed to utilising information and technology within the classroom.The girls are able to use the most up-to-date digital devcies. Broad extension opportunities for selected and highly able girls are offered through the Ruyton Gifted and Talented Programme in Years 5-8, and the Ruyton Master Scholar Programme in Year 7-12.
Ruyton aspires to give each girl an opportunity to learn and grow so that she achieves educational excellence and personal fulfilment.

Ruyton seeks to provide a supportive environment enabling girls to demonstrate that:

* as individuals they are confident, resourceful and resilient;

* as learners they are intellectually curious, versatile and can
work both independently and collaboratively,

* as members of the community they practise tolerance and

* as leaders they act with integrity, self-assurance, initiative
and an awareness of the value of service;

* and as citizens they are enterprising, creative and have a
commitment to community service, sustainability and a global society.
