With an international reputation as a leading girls’ school and nearly 1,000 students in our care, our school was founded with the vision of one woman.

Ruyton was established in 1878 by Charlotte Anderson with a belief in sound scholarship, opportunity and challenge for girls. This belief remains at the heart of all we do today. We believe in the potential and power of girls. 

At Ruyton we foster the individuality of each girl in a caring and safe environment, nurturing her intellect, physical, social and emotional qualities essential to flourish and realise her own potential. As an independent, forward thinking girls’ school we are committed to preparing girls and young women for a lifetime of learning, leadership and engagement in our global community.

Our approach to educating girls is holistic, valuing our wide range of curricular and co-curricular opportunities while recognising community and connection as essential elements of success. We are a school that encourages girls to be adventurous, challenging themselves and each other to achieve their best. 

Powerful learning is central to our culture, building on our strong academic reputation. We focus on advancing the learning of every girl through engaging intellectual curiosity, building knowledge and skills and supporting indiivduals to achieve their personal best. We believe in real world learning beyond the classroom, collaborating with the wider community to promote growth, discovery, sustainability and true citizenship.

We encourage our girls to lead lives of purpose with courage, character and compassion. Through the development of values and action focused learning they are inspired to pursue equity and justice for self and others. By embracing diversity and raising their voices Ruytonians affect positive change and make a difference.
