Welcome Message from the Principal

Anne Dunstan, Principal of Guildford Grammar SchoolAs one of Western Australia’s oldest independent schools, Guildford Grammar School has a proud heritage of providing an outstanding education for boys and girls from Kindergarten to Year 12. We have one of the most stunning and spacious campuses in Australia, set on over 100 hectares of land on the banks of the Swan River.

The School was founded 125 years ago, in 1896, when pastoralist and Parliamentarian Charles Harper saw the critical need for better education as a way to transform young lives.

In 2021, Guildford Grammar School is a vibrant, thriving co-educational boarding and day school, welcoming students from all backgrounds and locations, who are seeking an education that focuses on their individual strengths and passions and fosters shared values,  individual and collective wellbeing and personal excellence.

As the  Principal of Guildford Grammar School, I am excited to provide our young people with a future-focused education that will serve them today and well into their future.  Education is my passion and I believe there is no other occupation more likely to have such a positive impact on the greater good and the wider world. 

Anne Dunstan, Principal of Guildford Grammar SchoolMy vision as Principal is to motivate each student to approach all aspects of life with imagination, integrity, compassion and optimism. A Guildford Grammar School education will foster the development of creativity, adaptability and resilience, through our learner-centred, globally relevant and future-focused educational model.

Guildford Grammar School provides extraordinary educational opportunities for boys and girls, young women and young men. Our website provides an overview of our academic and co-curricular programs across the School, our educational philosophy and lots of news and information.

The best way for you to experience all that is great about Guildford Grammar School is to join us for a school tour.  Once on campus you can speak to our students and staff to gain a greater sense of what we can offer your child and your family; our values; our aspirations for all students and our great sense of care, inclusivity and warmth.

I look forward to meeting you soon on one of our school tours, or at one of our many community events.
Mrs Anne Dunstan
