YEAR 7 TO 9
In Years 7 to 9 we seek to inspire, engage and challenge our students to embrace a love of learning each day with a commitment to working to meet the needs of the adolescent learner by using:
a relevant, meaningful and rich curriculum
Providing a relevant, meaningful and rich curriculum in which students experience a variety of subjects in line with the Australian curriculum.
Outstanding student welfare
We are renowned for our friendly, supportive environment and individualised care.
Teaching with a passion in their chosen fields.
World-class, age-appropriate pedagogy
Supported by the latest interactive technologies supported by a campus-wide wireless network.
We encourage our students to take advantage of the numerous opportunities available to them at Grammar so that upon completion of Year 12 they have many options for their future.
Years 10 TO 12 - Maximising Options for Life
During the Senior Phase of Learning we build upon the knowledge, understandings and skills that are cohesively and sequentially developed in the preceding years of each young person’s academic journey.
Year 10 is identified as a time of transition and consolidation and strong connections are made with prior and future learning. As such, we further develop and integrate the total education process at school, at home and in the community. The student remains the focal point in all that we do and our aim is to provide each student with many options to meet their individual education goals.
Our curriculum is designed with a strong academic focus to meet the needs of students considering further studies post Year 12. We also recognise the need to provide suitable pathways for all students throughout the Senior Phase of Learning. Opportunities exist for students to be involved in School Based Traineeships and Apprenticeships while support is ongoing for those who wish to work toward an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR). It is acknowledged that regardless of the pathway taken, all students have an obligation to uphold the specific academic demands that best prepare them for life beyond school.

BOOK A TOUR
I have been part of the Grammar family ever since Prep.
So many doors have been opened for me at Grammar, providing me so many magnificent opportunities to thrive. All throughout my time at Grammar I have been continuously encouraged by teachers to not only achieve, but to extend myself in all areas. One area I aspire to is our specialist lessons. These weekly opportunities stimulate our imaginations and provide motivation to pursue our unique talents. An area I am most passionate about is the subject of Visual Arts. I have been nurtured to further my love and mastery of the subject through the continued support of the specialist teachers in this area.
Lily Woods, Student
Each of us are truly blessed to teach, learn and play alongside such passionate, respectful and caring people every day at Grammar. To share each day with staff, students and their families in a school community built solidly on service above self and looking outwards to others is indeed humbling.
I am privileged to have worked at Sunshine Coast Grammar School since 1999. I enjoy working with like-minded people who are passionate about the education of young people. Sunshine Coast Grammar School provides students with the opportunities that will allow each individual to reach their true potential. I believe in a Grammar education so much, my son will spend his educational journey at Grammar.
Jeannie Baxter-Reid, Teacher and Parent
Our family relocated from Hong Kong to the Sunshine Coast five years ago. When looking for a suitable school we chose Sunshine Coast Grammar because of its reputation and balance for academic and sporting excellence. We fell in love with the grounds and superb facilities at the school. The boys are all involved heavily with the music program and finding friends and fitting in was made a lot easier by starting the school rugby program immediately. Through the boys sports and extra curricular activities they were quick to form friendships that will have a long and lasting impact beyond their time at Grammar.
My time at Grammar was instrumental in shaping who I am and being able to achieve my dreams today. Education delivered in a thoroughly supported environment by passionate and amazing teachers, have set my colleagues and I to be competitive in our respective fields. Further to which we were encouraged to develop skills and talents we enjoy, and to become well rounded individuals.
