Lauriston promises to deliver every student an education for life that goes beyond the grades and beyond the class. At the heart of what we do is offer an education that prepares our girls for life.

We often talk about our alumnae and student cohort who are changing the world. Making things happen. Defining their own destiny, on their terms. This is a direct result of having been given opportunities at Lauriston Girls School to develop confidence in their thinking, leadership qualities and ability to contribute.

However, the best way to find out what Lauriston is really like is to visit the campus to get a real ‘feel’ for our school.

Options for visiting include:

  • An experience Lauriston tour, which you can book via our Open Mornings page. You will meet our Principal, staff and be taken on a tour of the school by our students.
  • Or book a private tour with our Registrar via the details below.
