General Description

Macquarie Grammar School is Sydney CBD’s only fully comprehensive, secular, independent, Yrs7-12 High School. Located just by the Queen Victoria’s Building, on Clarence Street, the School boasts an HSC-focussed curriculum with a strong emphasis on academic studies that will lead to students attaining an ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) with less stress and a more focused approach. The booming population in Sydney’s CBD and inner suburbs has lead to a squeeze on local schools, leaving frustrated families stuck on long waiting lists, to access independent alternatives. Macquarie Grammar School favours a co-educational learning model with a 21st century outlook which is secular, co-educational, and open to all.

Founded in 2004, the School’s mission is to provide an academic-based curriculum and prepare students for the Higher School Certificate (HSC), pre-vocational and University Education, and the workplace, by providing quality education to our students and fostering an enjoyment of and respect for learning. We value every student and have a respect for cultural diversity and inclusiveness.

Teaching and learning takes place in a nurturing, student-centred, caring, and safe environment, where every effort is made to cultivate the individual’s potential.

We welcome freedom of expression that will foster the growth of all within the School. Fees are kept to a minimum because we utilise our City’s World-Class facilities.
