Old school new rules

Riverside Grammar is an educational provider for a new era in education. We believe that the world is seeking creative, solution orientated, independent thinkers. Whilst we value and draw from traditional educational practices and methodologies, we also foster a more personalised approach to supporting young people with their education. An approach that encourages students to explore their interests and discover their own unique talents. It’s a model that focuses on building confidence and self-awareness, nurtures individuality, embraces making mistakes, and teaches the discipline and courage it takes to break the mould and be different. Not everyone fits within a mainstream education system, and Riverside Grammar is a place where kids who have struggled to find where they fit, can thrive.


We shall not cease from exploration,
and the end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time.”

                                       T. S. Eliot


Riverside is an inclusive, co-educational, education provider in the heart of Hawthorn. Although our teaching style is focused on working with each individual to support their educational needs, our community learn and study together in an open study environment. It’s a style that is based on the student-centred learning model. We believe that the greatest classrooms have no walls and young people learn best when they learn and work together. We offer a range of educational programs which are tailored to the individual’s needs and goals.

We offer a broad outdoor education program. Including international trips, surf camps, and a range of other activities. We think cultivating a relationship with nature and the world is instrumental to each young person’s personal sense of wellbeing, and thus their future success. Experiential learning is at the heart of everything we do. We believe the best way to learn to surf is in the waves, the best way to prepare for a job is to do one, and the best way to learn about business is to start one.
