The Hills Grammar School, a non-denominational independent school, is located on an 18-hectare bushland campus in Kenthurst, approximately 30 km northwest of Sydney’s city centre. Kenthurst is a suburb of Sydney with a population of 5,000, a large park and a rural character. It also has a shopping centre, an events centre and a public swimming pool.
The Hills Grammar School currently caters for just under 1,000 students from pre-school to year twelve. Students enjoy the same informal, collegial atmosphere that has characterised the school since it was founded in 1982.
The school focuses on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) as well as the visual and performing arts. The music department has more than ten orchestras and bands. The arts continue to be a fundamental part of the extracurricular programme. There are study groups and clubs such as the drama ensemble, filmmaking or landscape painting.
Outdoor education is an important part of the school programme. It takes place in different environments e.g. in the mountains, on the coast, by the river or in the bush. Activities range from mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking and camping to sailing, dragon boating and camping.
A very good tennis academy is part of The Hills Grammar School. Internationals also have the opportunity to lease riding horses.
