    The Hills Grammar School was founded in 1982 with the purchase of a 10-hectare site in Kenthurst, 30km north-west of Sydney CBD. It was a beginning that had boldness and hope at its heart. The almost-country school of 1983 now sits on the perimeter of rapid suburban expansion, and the original enrolment of 182 students has increased to 950, and our campus now covers 18.4 hectares. Infrastructure, including rail, is under construction nearby to service the fast-growing Hills District population. While most of our students come from within a 15-kilometer radius, Hills Grammar still sits within an eminently beautiful and natural parcel of land where learning is central and distraction minimal.

    Students enjoy the same collegial ambiance that set it apart 34 years ago, most apparent in the easy conviviality between students and teachers. There are no bells to herald the change of classes. Native birds can be heard above the chatter of children, while the presence of bush-dwelling goannas and echidnas are almost taken for granted. These priceless experiences make life at Hills Grammar special.

    Pre-schoolers to HSC students occupy the same campus, creating a healthy family feels confirmed by a non-selective entry policy favoring siblings. Our school also mirrors the diverse nature of modern Australia. It is proudly inclusive, a reality emphasized by our curriculum, which strives to be outward-looking and relevant to a changing world.

    Our emphasis lies in providing a broad, liberal education, including the International Baccalaureate PYP Program in Early Childhood to Year 6 and a commitment to the rigorous offerings of the New South Wales curriculum up to the Higher School Certificate. Knowing that some students will change careers many times in their lives, we promote thinking skills, encourage curiosity, and instill a deep love of learning. Above others, these qualities are sustaining and will aid our graduates as they enter the world beyond our gates.

    Vision is to Extraordinary Education: Extraordinary Individuals. The mission is to Outstanding teaching within a unique learning environment: fostering each student’s potential for greatness. Graduate Aim is In partnership with our families; we enable our students to:

    • Become confident, resilient, and responsible individuals
    • Develop a deep understanding across a range of academic disciplines and strive for personal excellence as learners
    • Think critically and creatively and embrace life-long learning
    • Embody the humanitarian values of Respect, Integrity, Service, and Excellence
    • Understand the importance of an international perspective and contribute positively to our local and the global community
    • Develop an appreciation of a diverse and inclusive Australian democratic society
    • Display a strong sense of environmental responsibility
