Meet the Headmaster

Ad Altiora Ship :: Blue Mountains Grammar School, Sydney

Mr Ian Maynard became the 12th Headmaster of Blue Mountains Grammar School in 2019. With a background in Mathematics and Science, a Masters of Educational Leadership and an MBA (Masters of Business Administration), he has more than 30 years experience in education, more than half of which he has led independent schools.

Mr Maynard spent his first year at Grammar collaboratively developing a vision, for the School with students, parents, staff and the School’s Board of governors; one that will take the School confidently into the 21st Century. This Vision is to provide an holistic education for young people that will nurture Hope in their Hearts, Purpose in the Minds and Courage in their Lives. This is now being worked out in every aspect of the life of the School.
