There are approximately 900 students from our three year old Early Learning Centre to Year 12.
Typically in Prep our class numbers are a maximum of 18 and increase in the Junior School as the Year levels go up. In the Senior School our class size is generally restricted to 25.
Kindergarten is co-educational and we have one Girls’ Pre Prep and one Co-educational Pre Prep. From Prep to Year 12 Ruyton is an all girls’ school, although we benefit from the unique co-ordinate programme with nearby Trinity Grammar School at VCE. This affords our students an insight into a co-educational environment which is typical at tertiary level.
Early Learning Centre Kindergarten, Prep, Year 5 and Year 7. From time to time other vacancies do arise at different year levels. Please click here to contact Mrs Nadine Hibbert our Registrar to enquire about vacancies.
Academic, Music and General Excellence Scholarships are offered at Years 5 and 7, with Academic Scholarships from time to time at Year 9. Click here to find out more.
Girls have the opportunity to learn a second language from ELC to Year 12. Chinese and French are taught in the Junior School and girls make a language choice from Year 5.The language chosen is studied for two years until the girls are given the opportunity to make a choice again when entering Year 7. Whichever language is chosen at Year 7, the girls study this language until the end of Year 10. Girls may then choose to continue to study the language as part of their VCE programme.
Children start in our Early Learning Centre at three years of age (must have turned three by 31 January of year of entry), and at four years of age in our Pre-Prep programmes.
