Future Pathways and Careers Coordinator Caulfield VIC About Shelford Girls' Grammar
Shelford Girls' Grammar is a leading independent Prep to Year 12 school for girls. Shelford is an Anglican school that welcomes students from a diversity of backgrounds.
The keystone of Shelford's educational philosophy is our commitment to meeting the needs of every student. In order to realize this commitment, Shelford chooses to be a relatively small school, with class sizes being smaller at all levels. Here no-one is overlooked and no-one can get lost, and a strong sense of community is created when students work with others from all year levels.
While a school's first purpose is the academic development of each student, at Shelford we recognise that the quality of the relationships that exist between all members of the community determines the quality of learning and the educational outcomes.
