Right from the beginning, The Hills Grammar School was founded on innovative thinking and new ideas. At a time when independent schools were traditional, denominational, single sex, the founders of Hills 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 for extraordinary individuals. 

 

Hills Grammar opened in 1983, offering families an alternative -where students’ unique qualities and talents were highly valued. Co-educational by design, the founders believed that boys and girls learning together was natural and best prepared them for life after school.

 

Hills Grammar believes 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.

Hills Grammar is:

  • A vibrant community, united by the core values of Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence (R.I.S.E), working together to develop principled individuals and committed to the wellbeing of each child and young person
     

  • truly independent; governed in partnership with its community and in the sole interest of its students, with no religious affiliation, nor governed by church or system
     

  • intentionally co-educational, from foundation; allowing boys and girls to learn in accord with their natural styles, but benefiting from working alongside others who learn differently, ensuring well rounded learners are created
     

  • proudly diverse and inclusive, composed of a wide range of abilities, backgrounds, strengths and interests, mirroring the national and international environments from which our students are drawn and in which our graduates will live and work
     

  • a contemporary, forward looking and thinking school with a focus on learning and the learner, ensuring our graduates leave school appreciating and excited by the possibilities of education and lifelong learning, able to adapt, adjust and contribute to an ever changing world.
