Welcome to Scone Grammar School – Secondary

The Secondary School operates from Year 7 to Year 12 and offers courses within the syllabus framework as prescribed by the New South Wales Board of Studies Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES). At Scone Grammar School we encourage all students to take pride in and celebrate their achievements, both in and out of the classroom. There is a high academic expectation of our students and we encourage participation in a wide and varied selection of extra-curricular activities.

The School’s academic structure is firmly supported by the foundations of a pastoral care system. Each student belongs to a tutor group and a house. The tutor group and the house is vertical, integrating all year groups from Year 7 to Year 12. Students usually remain in the same tutor group and house for the duration of their secondary enrolment.

There are three houses at Scone Grammar School: Jones, Pulling and Ledger.


Our Christian Philosophy

At Scone Grammar School, our Chaplain participates in the spiritual, social and academic life of the School. Our Chaplain provides care and support when required; leads in and provides nurturing programs for spiritual development; and welcomes the opportunity to meet and speak with all members of our school community, including students, staff, families and friends of the School.

Our Christian Studies program aims to develop within students an informed Biblical understanding of religious belief and practice with particular emphasis on the Christian faith and of Jesus Christ, in whom its faith depends. Beyond Year 10 Christian Studies, Scone Grammar School offers I and II Unit Studies of Religion courses as part of the HSC. These courses offer the opportunity of studying the nature and history of religion and the various religious traditions.

Dedicated staff make academic life at Scone Grammar School exciting and rewarding. While supporting student experiences across a range of co-curricular activities, academics is the very core of why we are here. Our academic program is intended to provide a well-rounded education and we encourage all students to strive to reach their potential in all facets of school life.

To compliment our academic program, we also focus on the acquisition of skills that are essential for successfully negotiating senior study and life after school. These include self-management, the ability to set goals and follow them through, communication and problem solving skills and the ability to work in teams.

‘After School Help’ is a program where teachers volunteer their time to be available to the students in the library after school to assist with any homework they may have.
