The crest of three white daisies looking toward the sun to symbolises ‘purity and modesty with their faces ever looking heavenward’ and Latin motto ‘in labore quies’ meaning ‘in work is the true rest of life’.

As a leading school for nearly 150 years, we are proud of our heritage, attuned to our changing world, and focused on ensuring an exceptional education for future generations.

Far from just a place of learning, education takes many forms for our students. Be it social development, moral development or cognitive development, the journey our students travel is complex, varied and completely individual.

Situated on the coastline of Melbourne's picturesque Mornington Peninsula, Toorak College's bay views and state-of-the-art facilities provide the ideal learning environment for your child.

At Toorak, there are boundless opportunities available to all students that support their journey of discovering and evolving their passions. 

At Toorak College we believe the best education is one that works towards developing the whole person, beyond their academic profile. Young people are faced with an array of challenges in their school lives and often need support and guidance in managing such challenges. At Toorak College we support all aspects of a young person’s functioning, including their emotional wellbeing and mental health.

Toorak College has a fantastic pastoral care system with supportive teaching staff and a thorough personal development curriculum. Toorak College has a school psychologist who supports the pastoral care system and specialises in mental health providing evidence-based psychological counseling to students who are impacted by mental health issues and providing guidance to staff and families who are also involved in supporting these young people.

Our guiding values are: Empower, Academic Growth, Personal Growth and Thrive.
To develop aspiring young people with confidence and character.
To empower our students through academic and personal growth so they thrive in their future.

At Toorak College, we recognise that a dynamic approach to teaching and learning is at the heart of success in every student’s learning journey. We strive to challenge and nurture every individual and develop independence, curiosity, and self-belief. We recognise that every child is different and that every year presents new challenges opportunities. 

Junior School Curriculum 

Affectionately known as Wardle House, our Junior School program lights the flame for lifelong learning that will continue to burn bright throughout their educational journey and beyond.

Every Student Shines

We are proud to offer a Junior School program that focuses on high quality education and the overall wellbeing of each and every child. Our small classes and individual care, as well as our endeavour to provide challenge and academic success for all students, is what sets us apart.

Personalised Education

Students are taken on a journey through an inquiry-based learning program that is centred around key concepts and questions for self-discovery. Based on the belief that all children are unique and will shine in various facets, we deliver an exceptional learning experience that is tailored to each individual.

Igniting Passions

We expose our students to a diverse range of learning and co-curricular experiences from a young age so they can find their interests and passions with confidence. Junior School literacy and numeracy program is complemented by specialist classes in Creative Arts, STEM-X, Health & Wellbeing, Language & Cultural Appreciation, Performing Arts, Music and Physical Education. These classes run each week and are taught by specialist teachers in our state-of-the-art facilities purpose built for the teaching and learning of these disciplines.

Senior School 

"Our aim is that every Toorak girl can discover and pursue her dreams. She will have an inner belief in herself that, through hard work and determination, she can achieve anything." - Mrs Fiona Wines, Head of Senior School, Deputy Principal. 

The Senior School program is a personalised academic experience that advocates for girls and their passions. As proud educators, we have created a unique and practical curriculum for Years 7, 8 and 9 around real-world thinking, design making and future-focused learning, so that students are readily prepared for their future. Students in Years 10, 11 and 12 are immersed in global endeavours, student pathways and career-driven opportunities to ensure they are confident in the dreams they pursue beyond their time with us.

Agile Learning

All students participate in Agile Learning, a unique subject designed by Toorak College. This subject brings together the best of Technology, Business & Commerce, Society & Culture and Design, and sees students embark on an empowered learning journey where they identify real-world problems and challenges. This multi-disciplinary approach to learning inspires understanding and empowers our students through entrepreneurial, business, political and ethical mindsets.

Growth Mentoring

Through the themes of cognitive psychology, Growth Mentoring is a small group, collaborative approach, looking at ways to achieve goals and reflect on actions. By putting the student at the centre of the learning journey, Growth Mentoring ensures the learning in every class is strengthened and that academic and personal growth is evident. It empowers students as they learn to understand how to interpret the feedback and data they receive in a meaningful way.
