Quality teaching facilitates quality learning.
Our consistently high record of academic achievement reflects the high quality of our teachers, the attention we give to the individual learning needs of our students and the commitment to excellence we have upheld for more than two decades.
We offer a rigorous academic curriculum that incorporates a variety of teaching practices and learning techniques that challenge our students’ natural tendencies. These activities are designed to stimulate your child’s personal interests and develop their individual talents.
Our staff are highly qualified, experienced educators who understand the changing developmental and learning needs of our students. Our students are happy. They enjoy their learning, are eager to get to school, are proud of their accomplishments and become motivated life-long learners.
Each and every one of our boys and girls has a Personalised Learning Plan. These plans are implemented to ensure learning is focused on each students’ growth areas, which enhances students’ academic outcomes.
Junior Grammar students have the opportunity to be challenged and supported through extension opportunities both within and beyond the classroom, and our inclusive intervention team provide guidance to students requiring assistance.

Technology for Learning
Digital technologies offer your child huge learning potential. At Junior Grammar we encourage all our boys and girls to become empowered learners in an increasingly social and digital world.
Our integrated e-learning opportunities are enhanced with interactive BenQ boards in each classroom, classroom sets of iPads and laptops in the younger years and facilitates a 1:1 laptop program for students in Years 4 to 6 to support classroom learning.
Through our Bright Sparks Workshop, we offer the latest in digital, robotics and virtual reality technology with extensive resources including BeeBots robotics, virtual reality and green screen play.
All our students from Pre-Prep to Year 6, learn skills in robotics and coding as part of the thought embedding of our E-STEAM program as part of a balanced curriculum.
Ready access to technology means our boys and girls are highly engaged in learning and more creative in the work they produce.
We also host regular cyber safety workshops for both students and parents.
