WELCOME TO Peninsula 

Peninsula Grammar is a day and boarding school for approximately 1450 students from three-year-old Kindergarten to Year 12.

At Peninsula Grammar we see learning not just as a path to university and a career, but also as a path to wellbeing. The books we read, the science we absorb, the languages we learn, the artistic, sporting and musical skills we acquire are the tools that enable us to fulfil our potential.

Our Prospectus: Learn. Grow. Flourish!


Volume 1, Flourish - The Learning Purpose tells the School’s story in a nutshell through stunning images and an accompanying narrative.

  Volume 2, Flourish - The Learning Blueprint provides further detail and insight into life at  Peninsula Grammar.

Please take the time to browse both volumes and then share them with your friends and family. They are a great way to let the wider community know about the outstanding, holistic education available at our School.

Our international students benefit from the specialised facility of our English Language Centre, where they can hone their English skills before entering the mainstream classrooms. We also have 500 students studying on two campuses in China, where their excellent VCE results help them achieve a university place in the highly competitive Chinese system, or they can choose to study in Australia.

Our co-curricular activities include a highly respected music and drama program, sporting opportunities, a House program, unsurpassed pastoral care, a well defined code of behaviour and a well developed sense of community.

Our students' achievements are testament to the dedication and expertise of our teachers, who enjoy a close relationship with their students at all year levels. This personal knowledge gives them a good appreciation of what each student needs, educationally and socially. We continue to be justifiably proud of the well-rounded, well-educated, considerate and community-minded young people who constitute our past and present student body.

If you would like to find out how your child can join our school community, please contact our Admissions Office or phone 9788 7777 for more information or to arrange a tour.




Staff update

I am delighted to be able to inform you that our Deputy Principal – Learning and Development, Narelle Umbers, has been appointed as the Principal of Samuel Marsden Collegiate School in Wellington, New Zealand.

Samuel Marsden Collegiate School is widely regarded as one of New Zealand’s leading independent schools, with a proud history dating back to 1878. The Marsden philosophy seeks to lay the foundation for lives of meaning, accomplishment and genuine happiness. With a strong family feel, Marsden is a community built on Christian values, which fosters independent thinking and aims to equip students with confidence, build resilience and instil the importance of community involvement.

This will be a wonderful opportunity for Narelle to undertake such a high profile, strategic and school-wide leadership role. While I offer my congratulations to Narelle on this wonderful achievement, I will be sorry to see her leave and I am sure I speak on behalf of the whole school community.

Narelle leaves the School in an excellent position. The School’s current reputation for excellence in education and development has certainly been enhanced due to Narelle’s enthusiasm, leadership and passion for student learning. She holds a special place in the School’s history as our first female Deputy Principal.

It has been a great privilege to work with Narelle and I am particularly grateful for her personal style of leadership which has been very much admired by our parent and wider community.

We will start the exciting process of recruiting a successor for Narelle in the next few days.

On behalf of the entire school community I congratulate Narelle on this wonderful appointment. Samuel Marsden Collegiate School have chosen very wisely.

We will have the opportunity to celebrate this achievement with Narelle as the year progresses.
