From The Principal
Northholm Grammar School offers a unique opportunity for young people to develop the knowledge, skills and personal attributes they need to live a purposeful life. The broad curriculum and diverse range of activities we offer our students nurture their sense of autonomy and enable them to develop the personal interests and passions they need for a positive attitude to life.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our staff and the supportive nature of the relationships they establish with our students. Staff are actively involved in many different aspects of school life and build their understanding of the needs of individual students and their families through shared experiences both inside and outside the classroom. This approach is fundamental to the nature of our school and contributes to the strong sense of community we have enjoyed since the school was first established.
Parents are central to this sense of community. We welcome them as active partners in their children’s education and maintain regular contact with them through our pastoral care structure and school communication systems. This is supported by frequent opportunities for parents to meet with tutors and classroom teachers to discuss the changing needs of students as they move through the different levels of schooling into an increasingly complex world.
We believe that as a school community we are well positioned to respond to these needs. While students and staff enjoy the benefits offered by small class sizes and the tranquil nature of our semi-rural location, we are very aware of our responsibility to prepare students for the challenges of the future.
Our students become successful, confident and articulate individuals with a strong sense of commitment to each other, to their community, to those who are less fortunate as well as to our natural environment.
In considering Northholm as your school of choice for the education of your children, know that they will be respected for who they are and supported into what they may become.
I look forward to the opportunity to meet with you so I can share other aspects of our school with you and your family.
