SHORE SCHOOL


Shore (Sydney Church of England Grammar School) opened in 1889 and
is situated on the heights of North Sydney, close to bus and rail transport.
Today there are approximately 1440 boys (Years 3 to 12) at North Sydney,
including 200 boarders. The co-educational Northbridge Campus comprises the
Early Learning Centre (for three and four year olds, 48 weeks per year, open
8am to 6pm) and the kindergarten to Year 2 School.

Facilities: The Northbridge School Campus enjoys one of the finest
ovals in Sydney as well as five other full-sized ovals, tennis courts,
pavilions and dressing rooms, together with state-of-the-art school facilities
for boys and girls aged three to seven. The open plan of the Early Learning
Centre allows maximum flexibility for individual and group activities. The
senior school at North Sydney, with magnificent views of the harbour and city,
boasts a comprehensive library, basketball courts, weight training facilities, and
a swimming pool. The performing arts centre (including the 500-seat Smith
auditorium), technical and applied science, visual arts and IT facilities cater
for comprehensive, traditional education of boys of varying abilities. There is
also a very large rowing shed/function centre on the Parramatta River at
Gladesville.

endeavour to do his best in all pursuits and all boys are expected and
encouraged to be involved in a wide range of physical and cultural activities
outside the classroom. The school is proud of its comprehensive games and music
programs, cadets, debating and many other activities.

Welfare and personal development: Shore offers excellent pastoral
care from tutors within 17 house groups, two school counsellors, chaplains, a
resource department for remedial and extension work, and a careers adviser.

Special features: Boarders are well accommodated in airy, private
and spacious dormitories (single rooms in Year 12) enjoying great views of the
city and harbour. With excellent bathroom and recreational facilities,
dedicated and caring resident staff, an after-school learning centre and academic
tutors in the boarding houses during “prep” at night, the boarders at Shore
enjoy an environment second to none. Shore achieves outstanding academic
results from its non-selective enrolment. Early enrolment (at birth) is
advised, as waiting lists are extensive for day students. Scholarships are
available for entry to Year 7 and are based on the ability of the boys to
provide academic leadership within the school.
