About Us

Fintona is a warm and friendly school where girls receive an outstanding education.

Fintona is one of Melbourne's leading independent girls' schools with a long tradition of educating girls to the highest standard.

With an average class size of 18, students have more one-on-one time with their teachers and this is one of the reasons why our girls are consistently placed among the best VCE and NAPLAN performers in the country.

Situated in the inner eastern suburb of Balwyn, Fintona, a non-denominational school, caters for girls only from Prep to Year 12 and offers a co-educational early learning program for girls and boys. The International Baccalaureate is taught from ELC to Year 4.

Our friendly, supportive and caring environment, together with our broad-based curriculum, provide girls with a variety of experiences that challenge them beyond expectations, as well as establishing skills to help them cope with life beyond school.

Inspired by strong leadership and exceptional teachers, a Fintona girl will  find the confidence to achieve her academic and personal aspirations, whatever they may be.
