Ruyton has an outstanding reputation for excellence in the education of girls and young women. This reputation is founded on strong academic results and high levels of participation in co-curricular activities. The School is well known for its exceptional culture, providing a clear focus on personalised learning and the attainment of personal best for each student.

Ruyton enjoys a reputation as having one of the most successful Cross Country teams at both State and National level. In 1997 the Year 6 age group, led by Olympic Silver Medallist (Single Sculls) and World Junior Track Medallist Kim Crow, heralded the golden era of Cross Country for Ruyton. When these girls competed in Year 12, Ruyton won the first of now 13 consecutive State Cross Country Championships. This run of victories is the longest winning streak in State Cross Country history.

Our Athletics team performs strongly in the GSV first division; our swimmers are establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with, having regular triumphs in the pool, and, most recently, our Senior First Rowing Crew came first at the national titles in New South Wales. As Mr Stephen Ellinghaus, Ruyton’s Head Coach of Cross Country, and Track and Field, said, ‘Success comes as a result of a commitment from the whole team to training, as well as on the day of the competitions.’

This fundraising project aims to support the training of Ruyton girls in co-curricular sporting activities, GSV activities and to provide improved facilities for the physical education programme at Ruyton.
