Lowther Hall has a reputation for providing a well-rounded education for girls in an intimate environment of 800 students from Kindergarten to Year 12. We are a diverse, open-entry school where students are known and well catered for from their very first day. We pride ourselves on offering academic programs which support and challenge each student to achieve her best, and we seek to assist girls to understand a wide range of academic disciplines and co-curricular pursuits. At Lowther Hall we see our role as broader than the provision of a leading edge curriculum. We seek to be a school that educates the whole person, helping each girl to develop personal qualities and values that will equip her for a happy and successful adult life. All of our teachers, support staff and student leaders work towards realising this goal of providing a holistic educational experience for every girl.
A former School Captain summed up our school as follows: “Being a Lowther girl means that we are part of a community that is committed every day to helping us become the best versions of ourselves. Through the support we are offered by our caring teachers, and the activities that we take part in alongside our friends, we are able to grow both academically and as young leaders. We are each challenged and supported by the people around us, and given regular opportunities to broaden our horizons.”
At VCE level a large range of subjects are offered to support a variety of post school destinations and tertiary pathways. Typically, our girls achieve outstanding VCE results and in 2019 21% of the Year 12 cohort scored an ATAR of 95 or above placing them in the top 5% of the nation. Lowther Hall students demonstrate high levels of success in the tertiary sector and enjoy excellent retention rates in their wide range of chosen courses. Even more important to us, however, is that our Old Grammarians continue to live out the values of their school, seeking to make a valuable contribution to their community, both locally and globally as adults.
