Special Purpose 

Since 1877, Tintern Grammar has been a leader in the fields of teaching, learning and the care of each and every child. Tintern is set on 40 acres of beautiful tree-lined grounds, with magnificent sporting fields, state-of-the-art facilities and a working farm.

Parallel Learning

Tintern Grammar encompasses the Parallel Learning  model, which sees our classes run on both co-educational and single gender settings according to the student’s age and stage. Our younger students learn in single gender classes at an age when gender tends to play a greater role in influencing learning styles. This allows us to tailor our teaching methods to create optimal learning and pastoral environments to support each child. Our students feel more confident to be academically courageous and challenge themselves in a supportive and nurturing environment. Students are introduced into co-educational classes in Years 10 to 12, when social development is an important part of their growth and maturation with the move to more inquiry based and independent learning, as they prepare for future study and work pathways.

Early Learning Centre (ELC)

We offer part-time and full-time three-year-old and pre-Prep (four-year-old) programs in our ELC that combine teacher-led learning with play. Our youngest learners develop social, emotional, physical and intellectual skills, providing a solid foundation for their academic journey.

Junior Schools (Prep to Year 6)

Our Girls’ and Boys’ Junior Schools are an engaging and exciting place to learn. Our students receive the unique benefit of learning in tailored, gender-specific classrooms, while still taking part in planned activities on a co-educational campus.

Middle Schools (Years 7 to 9)

Our Middle Schools focus on academic and personal growth, health, pastoral care and gender-specific challenges. We offer elective subjects including performing arts, languages and ICT. Our Camps and Outdoor Education program builds skills of resilience, independence and responsibility.

Senior College (Years 10 to 12)

We provide choice and balance for students in the Senior College offering VCE and VET pathways, as well as extensive course and careers guidance, and university preparation.

Whole-child education

We offer students a broad range of co-curricular activities, including sport, outdoor education, young farmers, performing arts, debating, music and more.

Academic excellence

We are committed to meeting the individual needs of all our students. This includes challenging gifted children through Horizon, an enrichment program for students who display an enhanced level of learning as well as supporting all students to achieve their best. 

Our teachers are passionate, dedicated professionals, who continuously develop their skills through our Professional Development program.

Every child matters to us. By knowing and caring for each student, we nurture them to achieve their best.
