Oakleigh Grammar strives to create quality learning opportunities for every student to reach their full potential.
Our dedicated teaching staff work collaboratively and embrace opportunities for professional development, ensuring that our educational programs remain at the forefront of contemporary education. Small class sizes and additional teaching support ensure that each child’s learning needs are met through challenge for those who are talented, and additional support for those who have areas of difficulty.
Our School ensures that every child is known personally and places the utmost importance on student welfare and safety. Oakleigh Grammar is a multicultural environment with Christian values, where diversity is celebrated and inclusion is encouraged.
Together, we provide our students with a strong sense of belonging to the Oakleigh Grammar School community.
The Oakleigh Grammar Advantage

Whilst The Arrowsmith program enables students to become more effective, confident and self-directed learners. At Oakleigh Grammar, we offer a genuine commitment to ensure your child will be engaged through a range of contemporary learning programs.
Catering for the diverse educational needs of our students.
The Learning Enhancement Department provides specialised support for individual students. Oakleigh Grammar is committed to delivering programs, which meet the needs of the child – from those who may require learning intervention and classroom support to those who show a need for extension and stimulation.
Following parent and teacher referrals to the Learning Enhancement Department, further assessments identify the individual needs of each student, allowing specific skills to be targeted using evidence based strategies, programs and interventions.
A Dedicated Co-educational School
Share in the joy of learning and growing together.
At Oakleigh Grammar, we endorse the principle of boys and girls developing reciprocal respect and understanding for each other. Working and learning collaboratively in both academic and co-curricular activities, most authentically reflects the wider world in which they will ultimately dwell.
The ancient Greek philosopher, Plato, advocated co-education, for it promotes “a feeling of comradeship”, of trust, confidence, respect and cooperation.
A Global Perspective
Oakleigh Grammar honours its commitment to cultural diversity by providing countless opportunities for students to develop global citizenship. With close to 40 different cultural backgrounds represented in the student body, we continue to add new celebrations to the School Calendar so that students can share their stories with peers through traditional customs, song, dance and cuisine. The Chinese (Mandarin) language program provides for sister-school partnerships in China. Travel abroad and cultural exchange programs allow students to enhance their intercultural Understanding in preparation for life in an increasingly global society.
Students explore their interests and talents through Co-curricular activities, social leadership initiatives and camps which focus on experiential learning, teamwork and the development of character and independence.
The co-curricular enrichment extends in Year 9 with the ‘9Ways’ program, a classroom and experiential educational program designed to meet the unique needs of Year 9 students as they approach early adulthood. The experiential component of 9Ways includes a series of themed experiences throughout the year such as Community Service, Outdoor Education and Cultural Diversity. Students are given ‘ownership’ of the 9Ways Centre which provides them with a social and collaborative learning space.
A Nurturing Community
