Why choose Ruyton?

Ruyton aspires to give each girl an opportunity to learn and grow so that she achieves educational excellence and personal fulfilment. Ruyton provides a supportive environment enabling girls to demonstrate that:

• as individuals they are confident, resourceful and resilient

• as learners they are intellectually curious, versatile and can work both independently and collaboratively

• as members of the community they are inclusive and compassionate

• as leaders they act with integrity, self-assurance, initiative and an awareness of the value of service

• and as citizens they are enterprising, creative and have a commitment to community service, sustainability and a global society.

Our School offers a dynamic learning community with strengths such as our vision for girls’ education and a commitment to academic excellence and individual development. This is enhanced by our use of appropriate digital devices and the quality and diversity of our curricular and co-curricular activities. The size of Ruyton enables us to know our students individually, but our unique connection with Trinity Grammar School, including the Co-ordinate Programme in Years 11 and 12, allows us to offer a wide range of opportunities. Ruyton recognises the need for sustainability and sound resourcing to ensure continued success in nurturing the changing educational and social needs of our girls. We provide the best possible learning environment for our students and staff, and traditional buildings integrate with modern facilities. Located in the heart of Kew, seven kilometres east of Melbourne’s CBD, we are close to public transport and school bus routes. We are fortunate to have a single–site campus where the Early Learning Centre, the Junior School and the Senior School are all linked. This fosters a strong sense of belonging, which manifests itself in a whole-school approach, with students, staff and parents working together as part of one school community.

There is no better way to understand our School than to come Inside Ruyton on one of our Open Mornings or to attend one of our Principal’s Conversations to see the School at work.

Ruyton Girls’ School aspires to give each girl an opportunity to learn and grow so that she achieves educational excellence and personal fulfilment. The size of Ruyton makes it possible to focus on the individuality of each girl, developing academic, social and leadership potential through a wide range of opportunities. Ruyton is committed to ensuring that digital learning finds its place in a range of approaches to learning and teaching that are suited to the needs of our students, making them proficient in communication, collaboration, creativity and curiosity. With a wide range of co-curricular activities, our girls achieve their best through a balanced education.

Co-ordinate Programme: the needs of students change as they mature. Ruyton and nearby Trinity Grammar offer this unique programme in the crucial VCE years. Students share a number of classes, providing an introduction to a co-educational setting and promoting an independent learning environment.

Year 4 Programme: this provides an opportunity for girls to ‘step up’ and create their own place at Ruyton. It is a chance for them to learn about themselves and others, and to connect with both the wider Ruyton community and also the local community

Other specialist programmes include leadership opportunities, Specialist Maths, Science and IT and Languages (French and Chinese.)

Ruyton has state-of-the-art learning centres, including the Library Resource Centre, the Prue Gillies Centre, the Carolyn Anderson Centre for Creativity, the John Bate PE Centre and the Aquatic Centre. The new Margaret McRae Centre, due for completion in early 2016, houses science laboratories, Drama areas and other flexible learning spaces for Years 7 and 8.
