Vision and Values

As an independent, forward thinking girls’ school we are committed to preparing girls for a lifetime of learning, leadership and engagement in our global community.


Inspire girls to be bold. Educate girls to lead lives of impact and purpose.


Our values shape and define the Ruyton woman and the way she leads her life

Character to be resilient and to act with confidence and compassion
Citizenship to effect positive change through civic and environmental action
Endeavour to be curious, creative and courageous learners seeking to achieve personal best
Integrity to live a life with honesty and virtue

The Ruyton community lives by these values, providing support, role models and a sounding board for our girls as they make their mark in the world.

At Ruyton we embrace diversity and value the enrichment it brings to our learning community. We are committed to fostering respectful relationships and endeavour to create a culture of justice and fair treatment that extends to our broader community. This culture is central in preparing our students to be respectful and socially aware global citizens.
