Why Tintern Grammar?

Since 1877, Tintern Grammar has been a leader in the fields of teaching, learning and the care and development of each and every child. Our school is set on 40 acres of beautiful tree-lined grounds, with magnificent sporting facilities and fields, even own our own working farm, Tinternwood.

Parallel Learning

Our Parallel Learning model provides families with the opportunity to educate all of their children on one campus in single gender classes. At the same time, we understand that interaction between the genders outside the classroom is an important part of a child’s development.

Parallel Learning starts with our coeducational 3 year old Early Learning Centre and Pre-Prep Program; there are Girls’ and Boys’ Junior Schools, Girls’ and Boys’ Middle Schools and a coeducational Senior College where our senior students come together as one cohort and can choose between either VCE, IB (International Baccalaureate) or a VCE/VET combination.

Academic Success

Tintern Grammar has a strong record of success, both academically and more generally. Over a third of our students receive an ATAR above 90 and our students consistently achieve over 96% tertiary admission. We are proud of our passionate, highly qualified staff who engage, inspire and support our students in their learning and social development. In addition to core learning we have an extensive sport program catering to individuals of all levels, from beginners to elite athletes – with no compulsory Saturday sport, so weekends are free for students to enjoy time with their families and to continue their involvement with community sport clubs.

International Program

Our International Program allows our students to experience and appreciate other countries and cultures, encouraging them to become global citizens and future leaders. We welcome International Students from throughout the world offering both VCE and IB, provide a true local experience and offerings of an extensive range of subject choices.
We are a connected, vibrant community providing many opportunities for our parents, families, staff and alumni to connect.

Our Values

Our Mission and Vision Statements, shown below, ensure that we devote ourselves wholeheartedly to the care and advancement of each and every child. We embrace and share the enthusiasm of learning as a community and, as we have done for many generations, we guide our students through learning and values in preparation for life beyond the gates of Tintern Grammar.
