Company Description

Penleigh and Essendon Grammar is a school for boys and girls with campuses located in Essendon, Moonee Ponds and Keilor East. The school is associated with the Uniting Church and is the product of a happy amalgamation of the two schools, Penleigh Presbyterian Ladies’​ College and Essendon Grammar School which was completed in 1977. PEGS has since developed in both size and reputation for the provision of a strong and successful academic programme.

Today Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School offers a unique blend of single sex and coeducational experiences to over 2800 students. After Kindergarten our students attend either the girls’​ campus in Moonee Ponds, which caters for girls from Prep – Year 6 or the Essendon Campus for boys in Prep – Year 6 and the Keilor East campus at Gottliebsen House for boys in Years 7 – 10 or McNab House for girls in Years 7-1 0.

The senior campus, the Infinity Centre, also located on the the Keilor East campus, brings boys and girls together for all classes for the first time in their schooling at PEGS. Students at PEGS are thus able to enjoy the benefits that a single sex education can provide – particularly during the years of early adolescence – as well as those of a mixed environment in which respectful relationships can be fostered amongst young men and women.
