Central Coast Grammar School (CCGS) is an independent, K-12, coeducational, non-selective and nondenominational school. Established in 1985 and located at the heart of its community in Erina Heights, 1.5 hours north of Sydney, CCGS offers a comprehensive education to its 1290 students. CCGS has some of Australia’s newest facilities teamed with a world-class vision. 2018 saw the opening of a $2M senior humanities learning facility, reflecting the very latest design and technological thinking to support the school’s next generation, collaborative learning culture. A new $20M state-of-the-art K-6 junior school facility is under construction and will be operational for the start of the 2021 school year.The school’s core goal is to ensure its exceptional teachers are the best they can be and that students reach their full potential in all areas of their development. Harvard University’s ‘Teaching for Understanding’ framework guides a whole-school approach to teaching and learning. In recent years 30% of HSC students seeking an ATAR have achieved 90 or above and exceptionally strong 2018 HSC results have CCGS ranked at number 56 in the top 100 NSW schools.(SMH)Aspiration: ‘Our graduates will be mature and articulate global citizens. They will have maximised their academic potential and have been exposed to a wide variety of cocurricular opportunities. They will have developed into confident, caring and well-balanced young adults. Our graduates will be able to thrive in a rapidly changing world through their collaborative skills, technological competence, enterprising spirit and capacity for innovation.’CCGS is structured as three dynamic sub-schools integrated on one campus – Junior (K-6), Middle (7-9), Senior (10-12) – dedicated to each stage of a child’s emotional, physical and intellectual development. An energising Junior curriculum enhanced by specialists in Music, Art, Languages and Sport, inspires curiosity at every step. A wide choice of senior electives and HSC courses motivates students to explore and extend. Sustainable, dynamic and needs-driven learning support extends high potential learners and supports those coping with learning challenges.CCGS is a technology rich learning environment committed to high levels of digital literacy. Staff and students are active learners and users, enabling effective assimilation of new technology now and into the future. Students enjoy 1:1 age-appropriate learning technology, with school assigned iPads in Y1-3, Windows 10 Notebooks in Y4-9 and a Bring Your Own Device program in Y10-12. Kindergarten rooms are equipped with iPad and computer clusters and K-12 can access four IT labs around the school.CCGS students experience a balanced education in an industrious and supportive environment. A rich and comprehensive cocurricular program includes performing arts, robotics, outdoor education, sport and more. Well-resourced student wellbeing programs build social and emotional skills, character and leadership and create a safe, healthy and supportive environment where students can excel.Enriched engagement with the school’s community, present and past, immediate and international, creates strong partnerships for success. Through community service and leadership programs, students are encouraged to participate in projects which contribute to communities at a local, national and international level.CCGS offers a school-based reciprocal student exchange program with China, Japan, USA, Canada, Wales, Ireland and Germany. Additional cross-cultural experiences, including international sport, performing arts, cultural, humanitarian and adventure tours, help students appreciate the diversity of the communities in which they will work and live.CCGS is committed to providing inspiring facilities that develop cutting-edge teaching, learning and digital literacy capacities. In addition to last year’s new senior humanities facilities, the last nine years have also seen the following developments: upgraded and expanded Kindergarten classrooms; a new $10M Performing Arts Centre with a 750-seat theatre and specialist music, dance and drama learning facilities; enhanced Science facilities with seven state-of-the-art laboratories; a multipurpose all-weather sports field and a new library and lecture theatre.
