St Paul’s was started by local families, has been nurtured by local families and now is one of the leading schools in Regional Victoria.
St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School commenced with 19 students in 1982 in the Sunday School rooms of St Paul’s Anglican Church in Warragul. Since then we have grown to be a leading independent, co-educational school of approximately 1600 students on two campuses in Warragul and Traralgon. The School has established a strong academic reputation with the majority of graduates continuing to university studies.
Our Foundation Principal was Dr Des Parker from 1981-1992, followed by Mr Richard Prideaux 1993-2006, and Mr Mark Robertson 2007-2010. From 2011-2012, Mr Mike Clapper was Executive Principal of St Paul’s and Ms Lisa Moloney was Principal from 2011-2017. Our current Principal Mr Cameron Herbert began in 2018.
