Academic

Senior School Students studying scienceGuildford Grammar School, at all year levels, provides courses that are designed to stimulate all students' intellectual development and prepare them to progress to the next level. There is a continuity and coherence in the curriculum and in the expectations placed on each student. A framework is provided to give structure to the pattern of the school day and to provide guidance to parents regarding the homework and study expected outside the classroom.  

Our courses are delivered in the manner and environment most suited to the students’ learning needs and capacities at each particular age. Within the broad subdivisions of Preparatory (primary), Junior Secondary and Senior School, great care is taken to tailor the courses to achieve maximum benefit for the student, to offer constantly greater challenges, and to produce the independent, resilient, and self-motivated students who graduate from the School.

At all levels, accomplished students and expert staff model academic excellence in the pursuit of the highest levels of attainment; in entry into state, national and international competitions; and in appropriate liaison with other schools as well as tertiary institutions. Students who perform in an outstanding way are recognised publicly in school assemblies, in School publications, through the receipt of Prizes and Scholarships, through receipt of Commendation Certificates, and through membership of the prestigious Academic Honour Society.
