Welcome to Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar School
Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar School has a proud tradition of providing excellence in education for girls for more than 100 years.
We aim to challenge and inspire each student and help her develop the skills and confidence to enable her to strive towards achieving her personal goals and to contribute to the wider community.
Ivanhoe Girls’ is small enough for us to focus on each student as a unique individual learner yet large enough to be able to offer a broad range of choices within the formal curriculum and a wide range of co-curricular opportunities.
We help them to develop confidence, resilience and self-esteem in an environment which encourages respect for the individual, together with tolerance and understanding of others.
Excellence in Educating Girls
The best learning environment is one where girls are the sole focus of the learning, which allows them to develop their own voices. Girls flourish in learning settings where they are provided with opportunities to learn using their preferred collaborative learning styles yet where they are also encouraged to develop a broad range of thinking and learning skills and strategies.
At Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar School we seek to give young women the knowledge, skills and confidence to make their own choices, leading them to a diverse range of tertiary courses and careers, and preparing them to meet the exciting challenges ahead in their future.
Catering to Individuals
From our Early Learning Centre to Year 12, each girl is provided with a structured learning environment best suited to her developmental and learning needs. She is encouraged to develop her leadership and organisational skills in a supportive and stimulating environment in which effort and excellence are recognised and highly valued.
The classroom and pastoral care programs work together to enable the girls to develop an awareness of their own spirituality and appreciation of the beliefs and needs of others and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
Infused throughout the curriculum are opportunities for students to develop thinking skills, information literacy and technology skills.
The Early Learning Centre focuses on learning through play and providing a safe and secure environment where girls are encouraged to express themselves and develop confidence.
The early years of primary school build solid foundations for later learning with an emphasis on mastery of basic skills of numeracy and literacy as well as developing cultural understanding, problem solving and personal and interpersonal skills.
In the Middle Years program the wide range of studies with a number of teachers exposes the students to varied teaching and learning styles. The diversity of experiences helps to equip girls with the flexibility they need to thrive in a changing world.
The Senior Years program is structured so that the horizons of our students are deliberately stretched by a broad and comprehensive curriculum that ensures each girl develops skills and knowledge in all learning areas and helps her to begin to identify where her interests and strengths lie.
Facilities & Co Curricular Program
Ivanhoe Girls’ has excellent, modern facilities to support the co-curricular program including a heated indoor pool, gymnasium, sports field and purpose built Performing Arts Centre.
The school offers 20 different sports. There is a range of orchestras and choirs, as well as opportunities to participate in Debating and Public Speaking along with a wide range of other student clubs and groups.
