Why choose Fintona?

Find out why we are a leading educational provider for girls.

Having proved our academic rigour over the past 120 years, Fintona Girls' School usually ranks in the top ten best Melbourne schools based on VCE results. 

The keys to our success:

Fintona students stand out as high achievers. We are consistently ranked among the best performers for VCE and NAPLAN in Victoria,  which reflects the personal attention our students receive in a small school.

Fintona's broad learning programs stimulate our students to become independent thinkers, teach our girls to voice their opinion with confidence and help develop key thinking skills. Whether she is in the classroom, on the basketball court or in the music studio, a Fintona girl's ideas will be fostered and respected by her teachers and peers.

Our teachers are one of our greatest assets. A Fintona teacher has high expectations and encourages each girl to be the best she can be in all aspects of her development.

Our small class sizes and friendly atmosphere mean that each girl is known well by all. We have created the spirit of an extended family and our students feel welcome and accepted no matter what their background.

Fintona students have access to an extensive pastoral care program focused on developing resilience and they have the capacity to deal with many complex issues that confront them as they move through school and into adulthood.

Our school grounds provide a beautiful and safe environment where girls are surrounded by the history of the school as well as newer buildings with a state-of-the-art Sports Centre and Art Precinct.

The best example of a Fintona education is demonstrated through our Old Fintonians. Our Alumni can be found at the top of their field in diverse, professional areas. A Fintona graduate belongs to a local and international network of women who are successful in both their personal and professional life.
