A Flying Start
An all-girls’ education has never been more relevant. We are living in an era that is capable of challenging the differences we see in female opportunities beyond school.
At Toorak College, our mission is to empower young people. This is what drives our decision making to ensure we are developing our young people with confidence and character to brave the world. As such, Toorak College is preparing for its new transition that will enable us to enhance our focus on providing an outstanding education.
As specialists in girls’ education in the senior years, Toorak College is set to become an all-girls’ school from Prep – Year 12 in the future. We will enrol our last boys into Prep in 2022 where they will receive a nurturing and holistic education, integrating within our Junior School community until they complete Year 4.
Our Early Learning program will continue to be a prospering co-educational environment that provides the best start for our young learners and prepares them to thrive in the future that awaits them.
Wardle House, our Junior School, is so much more than a primary school. We place an emphasis on a child's holistic development as influenced by Reggio Emilia practices and the PYP-IB curriculum, with a focus on the development of core skills. We encourage each student's sense of wonder and inquiry with an emphasis on their emotional and social development.
Our all-girl approach to middle schooling in Years 5 to 8 provides every girl with opportunities for leadership, participation and voice. We provide innovative learning opportunities that encourage self reflection, risk taking and confidence building. Girls’ schools are ideally positioned to educate, inspire and nurture the young women of today who will be the leaders of tomorrow. Girls excel in a girls’ school.
Year 9 opens a door to the future. As part of our peak experience program, girls participate in Beyond Boundaries and engage in practical service and community learning experiences experiences. Travel and global connections allow each girl to consolidate her skills and acquire knowledge for future learning.
Throughout Years 9 to 12, students develop analytical, innovative, entrepreneurial and creative skills required for life-long learning and foster each individual's self belief, passion, pride and integrity.
