For more than 110 years, Firbank has been an important part of the Bayside community. We are proud of our strong traditions and heritage, but we haven’t let that limit progress. At Firbank, we take great pride in having some of the most up-to-date facilities and programs in Australia, including our digital learning practices. We have been well ahead in the digital learning space, even as other schools around the world continue adjusting to more flexible methods of delivering education.

Our exceptional staff help us stand out above the rest. We value team members who have a balanced and experienced worldview. Academics and high achievers, our teachers are leaders in their fields, imparting their knowledge from a place of experience and personal achievement.

Our vibrant, multicultural community reaches far beyond our school walls. Through our girls only and co-educational options, we offer more choice and flexibility for students to find the perfect campus where they will fit in. Later in life, the sense of belonging and the connections forged at Firbank evolve into priceless professional and community networks.

Firbank’s students are encouraged to have a voice and make active contributions to the School every day through their work in the classroom and the community. The Firbank learning journey is about becoming a continuous conqueror of life. We provide students with a balance between education and real-life experiences, so they can excel for years after leaving Firbank.
