Northholm Grammar School is an independent, co-educational K-12 school welcoming families of Sydney’s Hills and Hornsby Shires since 1983. It’s the school of choice for parents seeking to personalise their child’s education and build a unique learning path year on year, from Kindergarten right through to Year 12. As a school with inclusive Christian values in the Anglican tradition, we welcome families of all faiths and embrace diversity.

Closely connected to the Hills and Hornsby Shires, Northholm is a hidden gem of the district, nestled in natural bushland within an easy 25-minute drive from Hornsby or Castle Hill. Set on 10 hectares in picturesque Arcadia, the inspiring location was chosen to provide students with the space and opportunity to flourish. Northholm Grammar’s modern teaching and learning spaces include advanced information technology resources, science laboratories and specialist music, drama, art and design and technology facilities. The campus also features a working farm, agriculture trade training centre, a sensory garden, extensive fields and courts, and an indoor sports centre.

Northholm Grammar was founded on a vision to create a caring school that would know and nurture its students, with inspiring teachers who motivate them to give their best, and a campus environment that enhances the adventure of learning. Almost 40 years on, this vision is just as relevant as students, parents and staff strive together as a community for the common goal of academic, pastoral and co-curricular achievement.

Northholm students build real relationships with peers and teachers, as they travel along their individual learning paths, secure in the knowledge that they belong. Academically rigorous but non-selective, we welcome all students and proudly stand for excellence and aiming to be your personal best. Encouraged to serve others and find their purpose, our students are instilled with the determination and character to succeed on their chosen path.

Whether your child is academically gifted, shines on a creative stage, shows promising sporting ability or aspires to lead others to positive change, students at Northholm are respected for who they are and valued for what they can achieve. We will discover and nurture each child’s talents through a tailored learning experience with a Learning Support Team who monitor the progress of students providing in-class support, small group and individual tuition. Students who wish to be challenged beyond the core content have a range of clubs, co-curricular options and enrichment activities to choose from.

Learning at Northholm is enriched with opportunities to foster the intellectual, spiritual, physical, emotional, and social development of our students. Personal growth is encouraged through pastoral care, a leadership program, music and drama programs, and a chapel program. A Service Learning Program enables all students to grow through participation in year-based service initiatives, charity events, fundraising and outreach programs.

From the Principal

Northholm Grammar School is a vibrant and supportive environment where young people can develop the knowledge, skills and personal attributes they need to live a rich and purposeful life as future global citizens. While our students enjoy the benefits offered by small class sizes and the tranquil nature of our semi-rural location, we are profoundly aware of our responsibility to ensure they are prepared for life in an increasingly complex world. At Northholm, young people become successful, confident and articulate individuals with a strong sense of commitment to each other, their community, those who are less fortunate and the natural environment. I look forward to welcoming you to Northholm and sharing our exciting vision for the future as a place of quality education for all.
