Ruyton Girls’ School is located in the heart of Kew, seven kilometres east of Melbourne’s CBD, and close to public transport and school bus routes. Set in landscaped gardens, Ruyton is fortunate to have a single–site campus where the Early Learning Centre, the Junior School and the Senior School are all linked. This fosters a strong sense of belonging, which manifests itself in a whole-school approach, with students, staff and parents working together as part of one school community.
Ruyton was established in 1878, and its buildings reflect a combination of the old and the new. At the heart of the School is the heritage protected Moreton Bay Fig tree, standing loyal and true, just like our motto, ‘Recte et fideliter’. We recognise the importance of providing the best possible learning environment for our students and staff, and traditional buildings integrate with modern facilities.
Ruyton has state-of-the-art learning centres, including the new Margaret McRae Centre (science laboratories and spaces for drama and Years 7 and 8), a Library Resource Centre (IT/library facilities, theatrette and screening room), the Prue Gillies Building (art studios, photography facilities and the Year 12 Centre – The Penthouse) and the Royce Theatre. The redevelopment of our Junior School buildings will complement the current Carolyn Anderson Centre for Creativity, where there are classrooms and specialist facilities for music, drama, science and art. The Ruyton Aquatic Centre and the John Bate P.E. Centre complete the School’s comprehensive Physical Education, Health and Wellbeing facility.
The next Master Plan proposes upgrades for the Royce Theatre.
