130 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION

Girton Grammar School Bendigo strives for excellence both in academic and co-academic areas of education in a Christian, caring environment. When Girton was re-founded in 1992-1993 by Mr John Higgs, The Friends of Girton assisted by the founding Headmaster, Mr Clayton Jones, the Deputy Head, Mrs MacCulloch, and many others, it was a true effort of a community working together to produce something special. Over the past twenty years, many students, staff, parents and others from the region have contributed mightily to the success of the School. We encourage everyone – staff, parents and students to work together as a community to achieve the Mission and to support and live the Values of the School.
