The Peninsula School (also Peninsula Grammar) is an independent co-educational Anglican day and boarding school located in Mount Eliza, Victoria, Australia.

Founded in 1961, originally as a boys-only school and began enrolling girls from 1993.[1] The school is set on large hilly green fields overlooking Port Phillip Bay on the Mornington Peninsula. It is a member of the Associated Grammar Schools of Victoria. The school has a non-selective enrolment policy and currently caters for approximately 1,400 students from Pre-school to Year 12.

The school won a statewide RACV Energy Breakthrough award in 2009, and was congratulated in Parliament for its Year 6 human-powered vehicle team.[2]

The school has a compulsory Saturday sport program from Years 7 to 12 involving attendance of at least one training per week (two, depending on the sport) as well as having to participate in games on Saturdays. A medical certificate is required to gain an exemption from this.
