Trinity Grammar School Kew

VIC, Melbourne Eastern Suburbs









Trinity has educated and developed boys into successful and happy young men for almost 115 years. Located just five kilometres from the Melbourne’s CBD, our Kew campus is easily accessible by public transport, and every day, almost 1,500 boys from Prep to Year 12 attend the school.

Trinity has a strong reputation for academic achievement, with highly qualified and passionate teaching staff. Our VCE results are outstanding, with the majority of boys achieving entry to the university course of their choice.

At Trinity, we pride ourselves on offering:

  • a diverse curriculum shaped to meet individual needs
  • a learning environment designed for boys to prosper
  • a breadth of cocurricular activities which inspire engagement and a sense of belonging
  • a social environment, which is both supportive and nurturing
  • meaningful community engagement that assists our boys to become responsible global citizens.

Academic results

In 2019, our joint Duces achieved outstanding ATARs of 99.95, with a further 17 boys (app. 11%) obtaining ATARs of 99 or above. Impressively, 53% of all boys achieved ATARs over 90.00, and the median ATAR was 91.30. Trinity Grammar School, Kew has won the 2020 The Age Schools that Excel Award, Eastern Melbourne (non-government). The award is in recognition for having the best growth in VCE results over the past 10 years.


Students at Trinity Grammar School, Kew learn with passion and purpose. Each boy is encouraged and supported to find enjoyment in his own learning and to strive for his personal best by ‘embracing the struggle’. We believe this is a quality which stands each boy in good stead, not only at school, but for the rest of his life.

In Years 7 and 8, all students study the same core subjects with a choice of either Chinese, German, Latin or French as their language other than English (LOTE). In Years 9 and 10, students are offered a wide range of electives to complement their compulsory core subjects, including accelerated mathematics, additional science and history subjects, hospitality, philosophy, commerce, information technology or design and technology.

Coordinate Program

From Year 9 onwards, through opportunities such as the Ruyton-Trinity play and dancing classes, boys begin to interact socially with their Ruyton counterparts.

In Years 11 and 12, the Program expands to encompass academic classes. This not only enables students to choose from a much broader range of subjects than might otherwise be possible, but also provides them with an introduction to a coeducational environment at an age and stage at which they can gain maximum benefit.

Cocurricular offerings

A wide range of cocurricular activities caters for the interests and passions of all students. Activities include almost 30 different individual and team sports, debating and public speaking, drama, musical ensembles and orchestras, chess and bushwalking, with each thoughtfully designed to foster intellectual, personal, physical, social and emotional growth.

Leadership opportunities

Our boys enjoy opportunities to become student leaders throughout the entirety of their education at Trinity. Leadership roles exist in peer support activities, across the House System, in sporting teams and through the Outdoor Education program. With a strong focus on service, they learn the importance of humility and authenticity in building constructive relationships with all members of the school and broader communities.

Trinity Grammar School, Kew is well served by trams along Cotham Road, High Street and Glenferrie Road, as well as trains to Glenferrie Station, and public buses from the eastern suburbs and inner-city areas.
