YEAR 7 TO YEAR 12
A true partnership between parents, students, and School.
One of the most common reasons students give for their love of Lauriston is the deep sense of community and inclusiveness they experience here.
Our single sex learning environment ensures girls are free to explore without the influence of gender stereotypes and our program is anchored to the School’s values of courage, relationships, intellectual curiosity, creativity and engagement in life.
It’s a broad, deep academic curriculum delivered by world-class educators skilled at nurturing confident, socially conscious young women, ready to embrace every opportunity that life offers.

“Many talk about changing the world. We nurture women who can make it happen.”

The Lauriston difference
At Lauriston, we inspire strong, courageous, and adaptable thinkers.
More than a school, Lauriston is an inclusive and supportive community with an enviable academic pedigree, world-class educators, partnerships with global and local universities and co-curricular programs that are designed to produce true global citizens.
Open-minded, critical thinkers, who are well equipped to adapt to the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow.
A wealth of choice
One of Lauriston’s great strengths is that our curriculum options include both the VCE and International Baccalaureate (IB). It’s a choice that supports a girl’s individual learning preferences, helps maximise personal and academic outcomes and as a result, her University and career options. In addition, Lauriston’s extensive Co-curricular Program develops our girls’ creativity, curiosity and persistence and helps them forge relationships via a range of opportunities including Sport, Music, Drama and Clubs.
This begins well before years 11 and 12, however in Senior School, the Program expands to include, among many others, Debating and Public Speaking, Amnesty International, Environment Club, Making and Coding Club, Pride Club and the Model UN Club.
A vibrant community
Inclusivity and active participation are supported by the House System, which sees the girls build relationships across year levels and participate in friendly House competitions, including sport, debating, public speaking, music, and drama.
In the senior years, each House has a tutor group, giving students a forum to discuss day-to-day concerns with a mentor and their peers, and focus on areas of need, such as study skills, time management, dealing with challenges, or honing leadership abilities.
A school for life
More than simply a school, Lauriston is an inclusive and supportive community with an enviable academic pedigree, world-class educators, partnerships with global and local universities and co-curricular programs that are designed to produce true global citizens.
Lauriston is a place that’s inspired generations of strong, courageous, and adaptable thinkers. Young women who, when they see the need for change, seize the opportunity to drive it.
