Our staff delight in the opportunity to work in such a professional, academic and friendly community. We recognise that it is vital for staff to cultivate positive relationships with the children and young people in our care; as well as with their families, so that our students can thrive.

Our School owes much of its success to the learning opportunities provided by our teachers who develop innovative and effective learning pedagogies in the classroom. We attract and retain exceptional staff who consider it an honour and a privilege to work with the children and young people of the school. Every teacher from ECEC to Year 12 is engaged in regular and rigorous professional learning to ensure that hey are the best they can be, in the interest of enabling our students to be the best they can be, and in turn, considerably enhance student learning outcomes.

Teachers at Hills Grammar have the opportunity to:

  • Work with highly qualified, experienced and skilled colleagues in one of Sydney’s leading contemporary Independent Co-educational Schools.
  • Focus on the art of teaching, while they facilitate student learning in small classes.
  • Enjoy the challenges of innovative curriculum development and work in well-resourced learning environments.
  • Engage in teacher accreditation programs related to NESA and ISTAA requirements that are authentic and enriching learning and development opportunities, through a well-managed and clearly articulated process.

Support Staff contribute to the School’s educational program across Pre K-12 through providing operational, professional and para-professional expertise in positions covering a wide range of services. They have the opportunity to engage in professional learning and study opportunities that enriches their capacity to support those who are at the front line of student learning delivery.
