In Bayview, growing independence moves to centre stage. Our students learn to manage multiple demands on their time and attention and make important life choices with increasing ownership and agency.

Our academic program is designed to engage, focus and sustain the interests of our students as they grow in confidence and take increased responsibility for their own learning. At each year level, we focus on developing the different traits of a lifelong learner, including problem solving, collaboration, creativity and higher order thinking skills. Students build connectedness to their world, establishing links between disciplines and deepening their knowledge. Classrooms are dynamic spaces where teachers set clear learning intentions for students, monitor their progress using formative assessment and base future teaching on their findings. This enables each learner to feel challenged, stimulated and engaged, promoting a willingness to take risks and respond to feedback. 

“In Bayview, both within the classroom and during Learning Journeys, our students are supported to explore how to be their best selves as individuals and members of their communities.”


To support our students on their journey, we carefully select our Bayview Mentors, the person responsible for coaching, guiding and assisting each individual student in their care on a day-to-day basis. Our team of passionate Middle Years teachers appreciate the energy, humour, curiosity, imagination and unpredictability of the boys and girls at this age. Through our vibrant cross-campus House model, students within Bayview feel connected with the School as a whole as well as with their Mentor, building sequentially into the senior campuses of Greenways and Frogmore.


Recognising that all children at this important time have unique gifts and qualities, we provide all of our students with a broad range of co-curricular experiences alongside their academic programs, to develop and explore their passions. Friendship, leadership and teamwork are just some of the benefits that our integrated arts, technologies, language and sports programs add to our busy calendar.
