Alphington Grammar School provides a unique and idyllic learning environment. We pride ourselves on our commitment to supporting our students to strive for excellence in all that they do.
Alphington is a vibrant and progressive school community which encourages positive, engaging connections between all members. We strongly believe that at the core of everything we do are the relationships we build with each other, connecting both the head and the heart. The strong sense of community that permeates through our staff, students and families underpins the success experienced throughout the educational journey.
A nurturing and supportive environment
Our Early Learning Centre program is inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach, which is based on the idea that a child who is happy will learn best. Building strong foundations for individual learning maintains our focus on belonging, well-being, expression, and engagement of the whole child.
At Alphington, we believe that the Primary years are critical for creating solid foundations and building essential skills such as literacy and numeracy. We foster a sense of wonder about learning through an Inquiry Based Approach that enables our students to develop as lifelong learners.
The curriculum is tailored to student need, offering both support and challenge. Our curriculum is broad in scope, yet also underpinned by the knowledge that a good secondary education requires a deep understanding of literacy and numeracy. To this end, we dedicate substantial curriculum time to the core domains of Maths, English, Science, Languages, and the Humanities.

What does our community think?
Opportunities to grow academically and personally
“Throughout my nine years at Alphington, I was given many opportunities to grow both academically and personally. These opportunities allowed me to become the person I am today and provided me with many skills that will continue to assist me with my future endeavours.”
– H. Reid, Class of 2018
Immediate sense of authenticity and community
“I was fortunate enough to call Alphington Grammar School my second home for six years. From the moment I joined the school, I felt an immediate sense of its authenticity and community. Every student is known by their teacher and peers, immersed in the life and spirit of the school, with countless resources, clubs and opportunities available. From the life skills gained on Global Gateways to annual House Night celebrations, I am most grateful for the holistic support AGS offers. I look forward to witnessing further milestones and the continued success of its students.”
– P. Lettas, Class of 2020
Our home away from home
“As one door closes, another one opens.” That’s how I would describe my experience at Alphington, and the many opportunities granted to me. I formed unforgettable bonds with teachers and students across all year levels, and I’ll always cherish the memories that shaped me into who I am today.
I hold the memory of my final year the closest to my heart. It was emblematic of what it means to be a true Grammarian; passion, excitement, persistence and unconditional support. Many students at Alphington, both current and alumni, would describe it as our home away from home.”
– L. Houdalakis, Class of 2019
