Tintern Grammar

Tintern Grammar

VIC, Melbourne Eastern Suburbs









About us

Since 1877, Tintern Grammar has been a leader in the fields of teaching, learning and the care and development of each and every child. We celebrate our boys’ and girls’ individuality, providing an environment that encourages them to excel both academically and personally. Tintern is set on 40 acres of beautiful tree-lined grounds, with magnificent sporting fields, state-of-the-art facilities and our own working farm, Tinternwood.

We have adopted the unique Parallel Learning model. This model starts with mixed classes in our Early Learning Centre, then genders are separated through the Junior and Middle Schools to provide stimulating and effective learning environments designed to meet the differing learning styles of boys and girls. Mixed classes are re-introduced in Year 10 where students benefit from a greater choice of subjects and tertiary-style facilities. They are also prepared for the transition to higher education or to begin their working lives.

International Baccalaureate at Tintern

We provide choice and balance for students in their final years of schooling. Our purpose built Senior College provides three study pathways — VCE, International Baccalaureate (IB) and VCE/VET— as well as extensive course and careers guidance and university preparation assistance. 

The International Baccalaureate Diploma is a two-year curriculum, undertaken in Years 11 and 12. IB provides an alternative to traditional rote learning, focusing on independent research and essay writing, and has a distinct emphasis on educating the whole person. Strong emphasis is placed on the ideals of international understanding and responsible citizenship. 

The IB Diploma is recognised by Australian tertiary institutions and major universities worldwide. Tintern is the only school in the region to offer this globally renowned study pathway.

Whole-child education

We offer students a broad range of co-curricular activities, including sport, outdoor education, Young Farmers, performing arts, debating, music and more.

Academic excellence

We are committed to meeting the needs of all of our students from Prep to Year 12. Extension programs are offered throughout the entire curriculum and extend beyond the classroom.

Tintern students consistently achieve amongst the top ATAR scores in the country for both VCE and IB.

Excellent teachers

Our teachers are dedicated, passionate and highly skilled, and instil a lifelong love of learning. Our staff continuously develop their skills through our Professional Development program.

Individual care

At Tintern every child matters to us. By knowing and caring for each student, we nurture them to achieve their best.
