ACADEMIC PROGRAMME

Geelong Grammar School offers a dynamic and flexible Academic Programme developed, driven and differentiated to meet the diverse needs, learning styles, and personal goals of our students, from Early Learning through to Year 12. The School’s two Early Learning/Primary campuses, Bostock House and Toorak Campus, take inspiration from the Reggio Emilia philosophy. The Toorak Campus was the first school in Victoria to introduce the Primary Years Programme (PYP) of the International Baccalaureate (IB). Timbertop, the School’s remote Year 9 campus located in the foothills of the Victorian Alps, provides students with a unique opportunity to experience a rigorous Academic Programme alongside a challenging Outdoor Education stream. Senior School students have the choice of the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma for entry into tertiary study.

The implicit teaching of Positive Education, developed from the science of Positive Psychology, takes place at every campus and across all aspects of school life. Explicit teaching of Positive Education is delivered in Year 7 and Year 10 through specific Positive Psychology programmes written by the world’s leading research psychologists and developed in collaboration with experienced classroom teachers.
