Blue Mountains Grammar Senior School equips students with the capacity to pursue and fulfil their life purpose, no matter what that may be. We partner with parents to invest in their children’s future by encouraging the skills they need and providing them with opportunities to achieve great things.
We have been partnering with parents to grow outstandingly successful young people for over one hundred years and are proud of our rich history and tradition as an independent school. The greatness of any school, however, is measured in the life outcomes of its students, and both in the Blue Mountains region and throughout the world, Alumni of Blue Mountains Grammar School make an exceptional contribution and lead in a range of fields.
As a non-selective school, the Senior School has a long tradition of academic excellence, with the overwhelming majority of our graduates gaining entry to highly competitive university courses upon completion of the Higher School Certificate. We also support and celebrate our students who choose alternative pathways, with a strong cohort of students undertaking vocational education and training courses in the final years of school. Our experienced and dedicated teachers are experts in adding value to our students’ learning, with our young people consistently engaged in learning-focused classrooms. Our Senior School students hold themselves to the highest standards of behaviour, and spur each other on to higher achievement.
It is not only the academic prowess of our students, however, that makes the BMGS difference. Throughout each student’s journey at Blue Mountains Grammar School our teachers focus intentionally on growing in our students the character and capability that enables them to manage their lives through its ups and downs. It is our hope and aspiration that each and every student will leave us with hope in their hearts, purpose in their minds and courage in their lives.
At Blue Mountains Grammar School, we know that the character and the of our young people are shaped by both their experiences and their relationships. The growth of character forms a central pillar of our outstanding Pastoral Care system; our rich and varied Co-Curricular Program consisting of Music, Theatre, Arts, Sport and more; as well as our signature Wilderness Education and Camp Programs.
