Year 11 and 12 offer an exciting springboard into adult life. While the focus of much of the final two years of schooling remains deep and rich learning experiences, the Higher School Certificate examinations are the hurdle that all students must jump. Blue Mountains Grammar School has a long and proud tradition of academic excellence. We are proud of our academic team, many of whom have significant experience as HSC Senior Markers, Judges and Examiners. Over many years this expertise has led to exceptional results for our students.

The School maintains positive and productive relationships with many of Australia’s most prestigious universities. As a result, up to 80% of our Year 12 cohort receive early entry offers to highly competitive university courses even before they commence their HSC Examinations. It is not uncommon for our students to receive multiple offers. In addition, the school supports and celebrates students who choose alternative pathways such as Vocational Education and Training. It is our aspiration for our students that whatever path their life may take, they will be marked by a strong sense of purpose.

In 2020, Blue Mountains Grammar School was ranked by the Sydney Morning Herald as 115th in NSW and the top performing school in the Blue Mountains region for HSC results. The cohort of students achieved spectacular results with majority of individuals gaining at least one Band 6 subject result. This outcome stands as a testament to the school’s agility in a year of upheaval and the student’s engagement with their classes and teachers.
