Pre-kindergarten to Year 12 - One Campus
Hills is a Pre-kindergarten to Year 12 school set on one safe, convenient campus. While the educational continuum is broken into seven stages, each with its own distinctive character, junior and senior students are often involved in programs, activities and events together.
Junior students benefit from the wealth of facilities and expertise that the senior school provides. There is a natural resource of students, teachers facilities that young students can tap into. For example, it is not unusual for a Year 11 Chemistry class to share a laboratory experience with Year 1, thus introducing them to scientific method. Junior and senior leaders often co-host formal assemblies and presentations. Cross-age tutoring in languages, sciences and history is also encouraged. Sporting reams are often coached and trained by competent senior students. These experiences combine to give students a sense of responsibility, leadership and confidence.
Parent and Friend Involvement
The Hills Grammar School is a close community. Parents are encouraged to participate in School life in a number of ways, including:

- through the Class Parent Network
- mentoring students during Australian Business week and in specific senior courses
- as guest speakers for classes throughout the school
- as sporting coaches and managers,
- canteen helpers,
- reading and assisting in infants classrooms
Below are some comments from our Parents and Graduates
Being a Hills Grammarian is a lifetime association, with many of our graduates continuing their association with the school.
When our 12 students graduate, they join TOHGA (The Old Hills Grammarians Association). TOHGA Online is our online network of alumni. They are kept informed about events within the School and wider community and are also invited to reunions.
Our graduates are welcomed back to the school in a variety of ways. They can be seen as tutors at supervised study sessions, mentors for Australian Business Week, guest speakers at Presentation Day, coaches for a variety of school sporting teams, entertainers at social functions and on staff as teachers, administrators and designers.
Hills graduates are welcomed back for a visit at any time.
