Our learning environment is based on christian principles, providing opportunities for the growth and development of each student.
Since 1966, Yarra Valley Grammar has offered students the best possible learning opportunities and experiences under the guidance of exceptional teachers. Our approach is based upon christian values of compassion, inclusion, acceptance and commitment. The ways in which these values are brought to life and sustained through actions and recognition form the basis of our school’s culture.
The school board has developed a Yarra Valley Grammar strategic plan 2010-2014 to guide the future of the school. Within that plan is an ongoing commitment to ensure that Yarra Valley Grammar remains a leader in education in Melbourne’s east. Adopting that commitment, principal Dr Merry and his team have developed the teaching and learning strategic plan.
Our school is located on 29 hectares, providing students with the space they need to enjoy a range of activities. From competitive sport to drama productions, lunchtime play to quiet contemplation, students, staff and visitors alike appreciate Yarra Valley Grammar’s spacious and picturesque setting.
Our superior range of facilities includes the dedicated early learning centre and an upper primary building, both specifically designed with flexible learning spaces. Our year 7 centre is dedicated to supporting students in their first year of secondary school, and the contemporary senior student centre provides an independent learning space for year 12 students.
