Northholm Grammar School was conceived as a new concept in independent, coeducational schooling by a committed group of community members who were seeking a more personalised schooling for their children. This group sought to create a school that would look beyond the established educational practice of larger schools, to an education that fostered the talents, confidence, initiative and passion for learning in every individual. Since its establishment in 1983, Northholm has remained true to this core principle. While the School has adapted to a new educational environment, the spirit of community and the caring nature of the school continue to endure as its most distinguishing features. Today as in the past Northholm is large enough to offer a broad curriculum while being small enough to foster the worth of the individual, encourage academic excellence and promote Christian values. It is a School where young people can feel supported as they develop the skills and aptitudes required to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
