The Quintilian School is an independent, co-educational, non-denominational, Pre-K to Year 6 primary school. The Quintilian School was established in 1975 and moved to its permanent home in Mount Claremont in 1992. It was founded by a small group of parents and educators who saw the need for small-scale, community orientated schooling focusing on the recognition that children possess a natural curiosity and desire to learn. At Quintilian, the differences in children’s learning styles are recognised and supported. Responding effectively to these differences is viewed as central to a successful child-centred programme. It is also seen as essential to keep the student to staff ratio low.

The school is named after the Roman educator Marcus Fabius Quintilianus. He believed that the aim of education was meeting individual needs and although his primary task was to teach oratory or rhetoric, his views on wider education are of permanent value. It is the recognition, nurturing and working with each child’s individual character and ability that many parents feel is the most important feature of Quintilian.
