Since 1877, Tintern Grammar has been a leader in the fields of teaching, learning and the care of students. Their co-educational campus caters for students from ELC to Years 12, set on 40 acres of beautiful tree-lined grounds, with magnificent sporting fields, state-of-the-art facilities and a working farm.
Tintern encompasses the Parallel Learning Model, which sees students educated in both co-educational and single-gender settings according to their age and stage. Younger students learn in separate gender classes at an age when gender tends to play a greater role in influencing learning styles. Students are introduced into co-educational classes when social development is an important part of their growth and maturation, as they prepare for future study and work pathways. Providing both single-gender and mixed classes on a co-educational campus gives families the perfect balance between academic and social development.
Tintern is proudly an open entry school which caters to the needs of all students. In particular, Tintern is able to support academic needs of highly able students through their Horizon Program. It aims to enrich, extend and enhance the learning of highly able students who possess special talents and interests in a particular area of the curriculum, enabling students to excel in their areas of passion. The results are consistently the best in the region and reflect the hard work and persistence of students and the excellent teaching support provided.
Tintern are now accepting applications for Academic Achievement, Future Voices (General Excellence), Social Justice, Music and Performing Arts and Alumni (Sylvia Walton AO and Mike Blood) Scholarships for entry into 2023. To find out more and to apply, visit our website www.tintern.vic.edu.au
