Principal's Message | Gippsland Grammar

Principal's Message

Gippsland Grammar is an Anglican, co-educational, boarding school that caters for students from Kinder (Reception and Pre-Foundation) to Year 12 across three campuses. Our Vision is to develop the cognitive, socio-emotional and learning dispositions of our students to enable them to take their place as global citizens and leaders within a digital world.


The School comprises two Junior Schools (including our Early Learning Centres) - St Anne’s in Sale and our Bairnsdale Campus - and our Senior (7-12) Garnsey Campus in Sale, creating  a seamless transition from junior to secondary school. Our goal is for every student to discover their personal level of success. While our School retains a strong academic focus, we are committed to the development of the whole child and have a strong co-curricular program that includes rowing, equestrian, and a broad range of outdoor education pursuits.


At Gippsland Grammar, the inextricable connection between wellbeing and learning is evident in everything we do. Students feel safe and supported by teachers who know their students and use positive education strategies in the classroom and beyond. Our contemporary facilities reflect the enjoyment and value of learning as part of a community with shared values. Students develop personally and intellectually through the many and varied opportunities and experiences offered.


Our VCE results are consistently outstanding: in 2017, 25% of students obtained an ATAR score of over 90 putting them in the top 10% of the state, whilst 56% obtained an ATAR score in excess of 80 placing them in the top 20%. Our alumni are government ministers, business owners, artists and writers, doctors, lawyers…professional success is evident in a diverse range of fields. 


We look forward to meeting you.
