Why did the school decide to make this change?

We believe that a co-educational environment is in the best interests of the children and will benefit their learning and development as we move forward into the 21st Century. The transition has consolidated our strengths as a school as we take the necessary strides towards a modern educational model. Whole families are now able to become a part of the Braeside experience and educational journey.

The world is co-educational, and mixing boys and girls together builds character and education in life. There are also multiple academic benefits to be had for both genders in working together in a unified environment. Since 1990, the number of UK single sex independent Schools has halved with girls’ schools now making up 12%. This reflects the national and international trends that favour co-education.
