Our School


The School’s vision ‘to prosper’ is underpinned by its values and commitment to excellent academic outcomes for its students. Pulteney is pushing the boundaries of education with innovative teaching practices and tailored learning experiences. Its vision is designed to adapt to an ever-changing global environment and embrace technological, social and educational advancements. As well as looking forward, Pulteney celebrates its history and draws on its past as an institution that provides its students with a meaningful, personalised education. Pulteney students are at the heart of what we do. The Strategic Direction of the School reflects the unified purpose of Pulteney as a place where passions prosper.


To provide a meaningful and useful educational experience for each and every student that enables them to be their best self.


To prosper.

Strategic intent and the Pulteney DNA (our lived values)

The strategic intention of Pulteney Grammar School is:

To provide a personalised educational experience defined by authentic relationships. This will be achieved through shared systems of teaching and learning that empower students to prosper.

Guiding our strategic direction is a unified sense of purpose and ambition crafted through our history.

Pulteney’s DNA captures its lived values: the aspects of culture that define the current School and which resonate as aspirations for the future. The DNA influences and informs our decision making and our actions; it establishes that to which the School holds fast.

Our lived values

Honesty, truth, integrity.

Limitless opportunities sought through passionate thought and deed.

Intentional, resolute and reflective.

Legacy etched through a community’s tradition, innovation, service and faith.

Curated and distinctive experiences.

Respect and empathy fostered through collaboration
and care.

Our lived values, or our DNA, are both observable and aspirational; at once capturing the essence of our journey through history and distilling what it means to be a Pulteney Grammarian now and in times ahead. Our lived values shape our experiences as students, teachers, parents and families of Pulteney Grammar School and will become the explicit reference for defining a Pulteney education.

Pulteney's Strategic Direction 2021 - 2026

In 2022, Pulteney’s 175th year, the School released the 2022 – 2026 phase of Pulteney’s strategic direction.

This strategic direction seeks to draw together contemporary visions for education and explore how these will influence education at Pulteney. It redefines six broad areas of strategic focus with their own narratives for the future which coalesce as ‘The Pulteney Experience’.

As a School, we are excited by what the future holds and encourage you to peruse the pages of our dynamic strategic direction below, either as a flipbook or downloadable PDF. Hard copies are available from the School on request.

2024 Strategic Initiatives

As Pulteney embarks on its strategic direction, a set of strategic initiatives will be published annually to the School community. These initiatives provide the focus for strategic projects throughout the year with periodic updates keeping the School community informed regarding the progress towards the implementation of each initiative.
