Independent schools

Independent schools are diverse in the communities they serve, the approach they take to education, the needs of their students, and their size. What they all share is a sense of autonomy.

All schools in Victoria operate within the bounds of state and Australian Government legislation in areas such as finance, accountability, curriculum, and assessment and reporting. Independent schools are distinguished by their own management and governance structures. 

Parents choose independent schools for many reasons. These may align with a family’s values, religious and philosophical beliefs, or the unique needs of their child. Some independent schools are established primarily to support youth at risk, meeting and addressing a real community need. 
Ultimately the benefit of an independent school is that it will provide an education which is right for the student. Independent schools can open up more pathways, allowing each student to be their best.

One of the distinctive features of anzuk is the efforts they take to ensure they understand our College’s mission and culture, which means they always submit candidates that align with us as a College. This has led to the recruitment of teachers and leaders who embody, or readily adapt to, our core beliefs, attitudes, and behaviour which only further enhances our community. The anzuk team can always be relied upon to present high-capacity leaders and teachers for positions, ensuring a competitive recruitment process.
