Our vibrant School provides seamless and integrated pathways through the early learning, primary and secondary experiences for students from ELC to Year 12 across four specialist campuses.
ELC - Year 4
Our warm, nurturing, child-sized day school ‘Bostock House’ is situated in the leafy Geelong suburb of Newtown.
Bostock House is an extremely nurturing, loving and compassionate community to be part of.
ELC - Year 6
Our vibrant and inspiring day campus is located in the heart of Toorak, Melbourne.
The school nurtures every single aspect of each individual, and our teachers are like great friends.
Year 5 - Year 8, Year 10 - Year 12
Our renowned boarding and day campus in Corio is situated in a spacious and picturesque 230-hectare estate.
I am so grateful to be in a boarding environment where my academic, sporting, and co-curricular ambitions are heavily supported by a close-knit staff community.
Our full boarding residential campus is located in the foothills of Mt Timbertop in the Victorian High Country.
Timbertop is a place you come to get to know yourself a lot better, and where you meet new people who bring out the best in you.
We are home to rural, regional and metropolitan students from every state and territory in Australia; we also have a strong history of international students each year, bringing tremendous diversity to our community.
Students live, learn and develop with friends from different backgrounds, cultures and life experiences, enhancing open-mindedness, global-mindedness and tolerance. The friendships, sense of camaraderie, and lifelong connections are often what Old Geelong Grammarians treasure the most.
Students and families choose Geelong Grammar for an Exceptional Education, one that is academically rigorous, supported by expert staff and abundant in innovative, creative and adventurous programmes. We have been an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School since 1997. We are committed to the Primary Years Programme (ages 3 to 12) across all our Primary Campuses and offer the Diploma Programme (DP) in combination with the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) as a tertiary pathway for students in Year 11 and Year 12.
One thing that I really like about Grammar is that everyone has a story, whether you’re from Geelong or Thailand, everyone is a bit different, and no-one is a set model.
