About us

Safe and supported learning in a boutique school environment.

COME ON IN!

Located in Balwyn, Belmore School is a purpose-built government specialist school that caters for students aged 5 – 18 living in the northeast quadrant of metropolitan Melbourne.

We provide expert education, care and support for students with a range of disabilities, including physical disabilities, intellectual disabilities, autism, visual impairment or complex health issues that require paramedical aid.

We offer a comprehensive and contemporary learning program – based on the Victorian Curriculum – that develops each individual student intellectually, physically and emotionally.

We also help our students to lead richer, fuller lives by maximising their independence, competence and confidence across the functional and behavioural aspects of day-to-day life.
