Right from the beginning, we were founded on innovative thinking and new ideas. At a time when independent schools were traditional, denominational, single sex, our founders took an entirely original approach to education. They envisioned a school where creative thinking, creative arts and creative teachers took precedence. They wanted to provide an extraordinary education: a place of inspiration and innovation.
Hills Grammar opened in 1983, offering families an alternative -where students’ unique qualities and talents were highly valued. Co-educational by design, our founders believed that boys and girls learning together was natural and best prepared them for life after school.
We believe that education should be an active pursuit where students learn in a supportive environment with passionate and inspiring, teachers. We surround our students with positive ambitious people, the resources and the guidance to enable each individual to thrive.
We pride ourselves on being deliberately different. Now, for more than thirty years, we have been nurturing children and young people to be confident, accomplished and original.
