Hills Grammar is a truly independent, intentionally co-educational, proudly diverse, and inclusive school providing an education for children from Pre-K to Year 12. We appreciate that every child and young person is different. Our aim is to identify, nurture and expand on each person’s passions, skills and capacity in order for them to graduate into the world as confident, accomplished and original.
Hills Grammar has a non-selective (no entrance tests) admission policy where each application is considered on its merits. Priority is given to siblings of children already enrolled and to the children of former students. Our main entry points are ECEC, Kindergarten and Year 7.
Our year groups are intentionally small, to ensure that each child is known for their unique abilities. Junior School (Kindergarten to Year 6) is 80 per grade and Senior School (Year 7 to Year 12) is 120 per grade. As a co-educational school, we provide equal places in each year group for boys and girls. Our enrolments procedures and processes ensure we maintain this balance.
All applicants are expected to demonstrate a willingness and ability to support the School’s mission and values, to apply themselves to academic study, and participate fully in school life. The School’s educational program aims to prepare students for opportunities of life-long learning, including (though not limited to) further education at university and other tertiary institutions.
We believe that the safe and supportive environment of Hills Grammar has a lot to offer students. Through a combination of our challenging academic program and diverse co-curricular opportunities, students embark on a learning journey that will prepare them well for whatever future they may choose.
