Toorak College is an independent school from Early Learning to Year 12, with onsite boarding facilities. We are proudly co-educational from Early Learning until Year 4 and from Year 5 to Year 12 we take a girls only approach.

Project Shine

“What you want to inspire in others must first shine inside yourself. Our whole school curriculum is united under Project Shine, a program which empowers our students to find their shine and project it, realising the potential that every student possesses.” — Mrs Kristy Kendall, Principal

At Toorak College, we recognise that a dynamic approach to teaching and learning is at the heart of success in every student’s learning journey. We strive to challenge and nurture every individual, and develop independence, curiosity and self-belief.

As a school, our expertise lies in our approach and understanding of learning, our development of curriculum and our creation of opportunity. Project Shine is designed to take our students on a journey that allows them to truly capitalise on their potential, expand their world view and find their place within it.

The All-Girl Advantage

Toorak College has been committed to the education of girls for more than 140 years, shaping the lives of thousands of women to become capable and confident leaders.

As advocates for girls’ education from Year 5 onwards, we do not seek to replicate the world, we seek to challenge it by offering our students a safe learning environment where they are free to achieve their personal best and discover their passions.

Educational research and our experience tells us that single-sex education in Middle and Senior School years offers girls the greatest chance to defy stereotypes, develop strong self-worth and build confidence to thrive in school and beyond.

ACADEMICALLY THRIVING

Girls in single-sex schools perform better academically than their co-educational counterparts.

CHALLENGED

Girls at girls' schools have "higher aspirations", "greater motivation" and are "challenged to achieve more than their female peers".

STEM FOCUSED

For girls, single-sex settings results in much more favourable attitudes towards mathematics and science related subjects than those in co-educational settings.

CONFIDENT LEADERS

An all-girl environment allows girls to take on leadership roles in all areas of curriculum.

VOICE OF CHANGE

Single gender classes provide a learning environment where the female voice is not marginalised.

VCE Results

VCE Results

CLASS OF 2021: Dux and Head Girl, Amy Uren, led the way with an ATAR of 99.1, and was amongst 19% of students with ATARs over 95.

Almost a third of Toorak students received ATARs above 90, placing them in the top 10% of the state. The standout driver for Toorak’s results was a median ATAR of 85.

Our Dux Proximus is an international student, Alina Xia, who had been unable to return home since the pandemic began to see her family. Her 98.65 is a fitting reward for the hard work and sacrifices she has made to complete her VCE in Australia.

A third of the Class secured early offers to some of Australia’s top universities. These young women are not just ready to take on the world, the world is calling them and we can’t wait to see what awaits them in their future.

NAPLAN Results

NAPLAN Results

Our NAPLAN results are testimony to the high-quality teaching and learning that occurs at Toorak College.

Our emphasis on individualised learning and growth for every child has certainly been reflected in the 2021 results. Toorak College students outperformed the Victorian average across all parameters (Reading, Writing, Spelling, Grammar and Numeracy).
