About Ivanhoe Girls' Grammar School

Ivanhoe Girls' Grammar School aims to challenge and inspire each student in her learning, and support her to develop the skills and confidence that enable her to strive towards achieving her personal goals and contribute to the wider community. A proudly open-entry school affiliated with the Anglican Church, Ivanhoe Girls' is firmly committed to providing the best learning environment for girls from ELC to Year 12.

There is truly something special about the culture of Ivanhoe Girls’, which is often spoken about by parents, students and staff. There is a warmth — a friendliness that is hard to describe but experienced by those who walk through the gardens and become a part of the Ivanhoe Girls’ family.

With 1000 students from diverse backgrounds, the school is small enough to focus on each student to foster her own individual strengths, talents and interests, yet large enough to offer a broad range of:

The breadth of educational offerings embraces academic, cultural, physical, social and spiritual aspects, and is based on girls’ learning needs — informed by current research and practice.

Early Learning Centre

Our Early Learning Centre, with a Kindergarten and pre-Prep Program, provides girls with a range of opportunities that promote creativity, learning, caring relationships and a positive self-concept.

Junior School

The Ivanhoe Girls’ Junior School, housed in a series of purpose-renovated Federation houses, encompasses a curriculum that is innovative and rich, providing sequential experiences that are planned to meet each girl’s learning style and stage of development from Prep to Year 6. At the heart of the primary years is a broad and challenging core curriculum that recognises the central importance of literacy and numeracy, diverse co-curricular opportunities together with a strong focus on the social and emotional wellbeing of each individual.

Senior School

The girls’ entry to their secondary years is underpinned by a strong pastoral focus in which each girl is placed in a small, caring and supportive tutor group. This unique structure provides the basis for students to be courageous, take on new challenges and extend their confidence and skills. Their horizons are deliberately stretched by a broad and comprehensive curriculum, which ensures each girl develops skills and knowledge in all learning areas while also helping her to begin to identify where her interests and strengths lie.

Ivanhoe Girls’ is very proud of the growth in our students' learning as they move through the school. Almost every girl continues her learning journey into tertiary education, with the vast majority of students gaining selection into the course of their first or second choice.

Ivanhoe Girls’ looks forward to supporting your daughter to be whatever she dreams of being — confident, courageous, articulate, resilient and ready to take on the future she chooses.

Message from the Principal

An excellent education is the best gift we can give our girls today. At Ivanhoe Girls' Grammar School, we provide the ideal learning environment to give each of our girls the knowledge, skills and confidence to strive towards achieving her personal goals and contribute to the wider community.

With 1000 students from the Early Learning Centre to Year 12, Ivanhoe Girls' provides the perfect balance of individual attention and breadth of choice within the formal curriculum and a wide range of co-curricular opportunities.

Girls flourish when they are able to learn using their preferred collaborative learning styles, and where they are encouraged to develop and apply a broad range of thinking and learning skills and strategies.

Our students develop a lifelong love of learning in an environment that encourages respect for the individual, together with understanding of others.
