The keystone of Shelford’s educational philosophy is our commitment to girls’ only education and to meeting the needs of every student. In order to realize this commitment, Shelford offers a dynamic curriculum from P – 12 and a wide range of VCE and VET subjects. The co-curricular program is very strong and includes music, sport, debating, drama and overseas’ study tours. It is deliberately designed to allow every student to participate and to discover personal interests and talents. A significant advantage of a Shelford education is the opportunity for every girl to have a go at everything. Shelford’s Year 10 Program aims to build students’ understanding of their place in a global community. Building on the Year 9 Challenge Program, students develop important life skills such as the ability to work in teams, effective communication, a resilient approach to life and a respect for others. Shelford students succeed because they want to do well and they believe that they can achieve at the highest level. Their teachers share this belief. Students are encouraged to respect others and the environment, to act with integrity and to develop a social conscience and a sense of connectedness to the School and the wider community.
