The Benefits of Co-Education
‘A strong reason for co-education is that separating children for a number of years means they will not be mixing and learning about each other.’ – Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, Professor of Developmental Psychopathology at the University of Cambridge and Fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge.
At ACG Strathallan, our boys and girls learn together. From Preschool to Year 13, students work, play, socialise and learn from one another as they develop all-important skills and qualities to prepare them for life beyond the school gates.
The world we live in today, is vastly different from a hundred years ago, when single sex education was the norm. Educating boys and girls together in an environment that resembles the increasingly diverse world that they live is logical and it allows us to better meet their social and educational needs.
Sitting side by side, our girls and boys enjoy learning together and they develop a mutual respect and understanding for each other. Gender equality and opportunity is promoted across all areas of our curriculum in a realistic and authentic learning environment that improves the way students think, learn and collaborate.
