ABOUT US | Christ Church Grammar School


A truly precious time

Providing an outstanding education for 3 -12 year olds
















Established in 1898, Christ Church Grammar School is Melbourne’s leading, inner city, independent school, providing outstanding education for boys and girls, aged 3 - 12 years old.

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.

“At Christ Church Grammar School, we are committed towards the full intellectual, physical, social, moral and spiritual development of each child entrusted into our care. We warmly invite you and your family to visit us on our Open Days to see our school for yourself, meet our teachers and students and learn about the way in which we specialise in the formative years of education. You are invited to tour the school campus and experience first-hand the rich, challenging, diverse and curriculum we offer that creates a lifelong love of learning.”

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 also offer a comprehensive cocurricular program that caters for diverse interests such as Latin, French, chess, computer coding, homework club, karate, gymnastics and drama.

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.
