Preshil - The Margaret Lyttle Memorial School

Set in beautiful natural heritage gardens, Preshil is an independent co-ed school in Kew providing services to children between the ages of 3 and 18 years. 

Preshil offers a truly contemporary global minded approach to education. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum School, our accredited IB Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programmes (PYP, MYP, & DP) align with the school’s focus on intellectual challenge, inquiry and research based learning. These programmes accommodate individual choice and independent learning and encourage students to develop the courage to question, to find their own voice and to become responsible and active global citizens beyond the classroom. 

From the earliest years children are encouraged to develop higher order thinking through play, problem solving, collaboration, philosophising and exercising choice. Kindness, respect and courage are key learnings underpinning a creative rich program which nurtures and inspires young minds. The rapport between students and their teachers is respectful, reciprocal and focussed on achieving a lifelong love for learning, the best possible learning outcomes, trust and a genuine regard for each individual.
