Goulburn Valley Grammar School is an independent, co-educational school founded in 1981 with the first student intake in 1982.

The school was founded by local parents seeking a school striving for academic excellence and well-rounded development in the independent school tradition. Since Foundation the vision has been for the school to be truly regional in nature. This diversity has always been one of the hallmarks of the school.

The school was created through of the dreams and hard work of families from across Northern Country Victoria. The school has remained true to the original vision and has provided an outstanding education for young people. Alumni have made exceptional contributions in diverse areas including law, health, performing and visual arts, science, engineering, sport and education.

In 2009 the school employed historian and author Stella Barber to write a book covering the schools first 25 years. Titled Something Quite Noble the book is dedicated to the GVGS pioneers – students, staff, parents, council members and all those involved in helping make the school what it is today. Copies of the book are available through the school. Enquires can be emailed to Development Officers Mrs Pam Pogue
