Location Profile


Surrey Hills Primary School continues to enter new and innovative stages in its history since it was established in 1886. We have learning areas that provide open and flexible learning spaces for all students. The original two-storey brick building has been refurbished to provide functional and flexible spaces for students, staff and the wider school community. The majority of the 400+ students are from the immediate locality of Surrey Hills, which covers the Municipal areas of the City of Whitehorse and the City of Boroondara. Students exiting Year 6 attend both State and Private secondary schools in the area.







Our school has an excellent reputation for its commitment to quality education. Surrey Hills primary School is a candidate school for the PYP. Our school is pursuing authorisation as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education - that we believe is important for our students.

The school recognises that students have different learning styles, talents and interests and provides specialist programs in Physical and Sport Education, the Arts and LOTE. Literacy intervention programs provide support for students with identified needs. Instrumental Music program (including strings), Mini Singers & Choir, Dance groups, Student Council, Camps & Excursions, and special interest and activity days extend learning opportunities further. Effective communication between teachers and parents is facilitated through fortnightly newsletters, informal meetings, information evenings, interviews, student portfolio reports, class letters and school assemblies.

Surrey Hills Primary School is committed to maximising the educational opportunities for all students with staff professional developments playing a vital role in achieving this. Striving for continuous improvement and living each day according to our shared values is the challenge we have adopted for ourselves. Surrey Hills Primary is a school which promotes integrity, life-long learning and the attainment of excellence.
