An education for life

Welcome to Bayside's school of choice

We are one of Melbourne's leading independent schools for students from ELC to year 12.

For over 100 years we have provided young people with exceptional educational experiences in an unrivalled atmosphere of love and commitment to developing the whole person. Our students excel academically and enjoy access to first-class facilities and an outstanding array of cocurricular experiences.

A St Leonard's education seeks to develop selfless citizens, who understand that their education is not only about what it can bring to their life, but through them what it can bring to the lives of others. This is what we mean when we speak of ‘an education for life’.
