KNOX GRAMMAR


Knox seeks to be an exemplary school developing, within a caring
Christian environment, young men of integrity, faith, wisdom and compassion.

Electives: The school offers a broad range of subjects (31 HSC
electives plus extension courses in eight subjects) and accelerated extension
and university placement courses. The da Vinci Program seeks to challenge,
enrich and excite learning for highly able boys. There are also several
learning support programs, before and after school tutorials, supervised
homework sessions, and supervised and assisted evening study.

Sport: The Knox Sports Academy delivers programs in 22 sports across
both campuses. While traditional sports including cricket, basketball, tennis,
rugby and football remain strong; cross-country, squash, Karate, shooting, surf
life-saving, lawn bowls and mountain biking provide boys with a wider choice. A
number of sports offer the opportunity for boys to gain refereeing
qualifications.

Extracurricular activities: These include cadets, outdoor education
and Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, chess,  debating, Mock Trial, public speaking and Toastmasters. Through the
Knox Academy of Performing Arts, the school has extensive musical groups
including concert bands, chamber orchestra, string quartets, Symphonic Wind
Ensemble, a pipe band and school choirs and
conducts annual musical and dramatic productions. The school offers
international student exchange positions in Years 9 to 10, sports and cultural
tours, and a GAP program in the UK is available for students after they have
completed Year 12.

Welfare and personal development: Knox is committed to the emotional,
physical, social and spiritual wellbeing of every boy. The school’s aim is for
each boy to be known and to feel connected to Knox. Standards, guidelines and
procedures are practised that maintain the welfare and discipline of Knox
students through its Pastoral Care program.

Special features: The school has a strong academic reputation. An
extensive range of scholarships is offered (academic, all-round, music and
boarding) for Years 5, 7 and 11. Application is via the website from December.

Famous ex-students: Hon. Gough Whitlam, Reg Livermore, David Clarke,
Hon. Nick Minchen, Hugo Weaving, Rod McGeoch, Hugh Jackman, Peter FitzSimons,
Hon. Justice Paul Brereton, Rex Pemberton.
