About Shelford Girls' Grammar
Shelford is an Anglican school that welcomes students from a diversity of backgrounds. Students are encouraged to respect others and the environment, to act with integrity, to develop a social conscience and a sense of connectedness to the School and the wider community.
Girls really thrive in an all girls' school. In 2016, Shelford was ranked as the top performing independent girls' school in Victoria. A significant advantage of a Shelford education is the opportunity for every girl to participate in every aspect of school life. Shelford has small class sizes and offers a wide range of VCE and VET subjects. The School enjoys an outstanding academic tradition and offers exceptional Performing Arts and Visual Arts programs and extensive sporting opportunities.
Due to relocations interstate and overseas, the School will at times have some last minute vacancies.
