Who We Are

Established in 1988, Bacchus Marsh Grammar has quickly established itself as a school with a strong reputation for individual difference, personal development, academic growth and pastoral care.

We are committed to providing an independent education that is accessible for as many families as possible.  Through careful management and a sensible use of resources the school provides a high quality education at an affordable price.

The school’s basic philosophy is based upon a modern Ecumenical understanding of Christian beliefs.  The school actively encourages diversity and sees that a proper education for life exposes students to a variety of beliefs and ideas.  At the same time it gives time for individuals to reflect and develop their own views.

The school is located on a 16 acre elevated site to the south of Bacchus Marsh which affords excellent views across the nearby Pentland Hills and Lerderderg State Forest.

A Calm Structured School

At Bacchus Marsh Grammar we have a very clear idea of the kind of environment which fosters the best education.

The school believes that learning best occurs when there is a clear structure and a clarity of expectations for students.  This approach is seen at both a “whole school level” but of equal importance in a clear and consistent approach to individual teaching and classroom management issues.

We also believe that learning best occurs in a calm environment, we look to provide an environment which is both friendly and purposeful.  By providing a settled environment students are able to concentrate on their learning and important development of positive social skills.  A sense of calm is enhanced by a staff who are concerned, clear in their teaching methods and dedicated to developing the individual.

The school’s expectations of students are clear:

  • We want all students to work towards achieving their personal best and developing their individual talents.
  • We won’t accept behaviour which interferes with the learning or happiness of others.
