Since 1877, Tintern Grammar has been a leader in the fields of teaching, learning and the care of all our students. Set on 40 acres of beautiful tree-lined grounds, Tintern has magnificent sporting fields, state-of-the-art facilities and a working farm.
Tintern Grammar encompasses the parallel learning model, which sees students educated in both co-educational and single-gender settings according to their age and stage. Our younger students learn in separate gender classes at an age when gender tends to play a greater role in influencing learning styles. Students are introduced into co-educational classes when social development is an important part of their growth and maturation, with the move to more inquiry-based and independent learning as they prepare for future study and work pathways. Providing both single-gender and mixed classes on a co-educational campus gives families the perfect balance between the academic and social development of their children and supports the development of young women and men of strong character who seek excellence and strive with confidence and purpose to create a better world.
Tintern Grammar is proudly an open entry school which caters to the needs of all students. In particular, Tintern is able to support academic needs of highly able students through our Horizon Program. It aims to enrich, extend and enhance the learning of highly able students who possess special talents and interests in a particular area of the curriculum, enabling students to excel in their areas of passion.
At Tintern Grammar we understand students learn differently and every path of learning is individual. We offer a variety of pathways for students to achieve their desired outcomes and future goals. Our results are consistently the best in the region and reflect the hard work and persistence of our students and the excellent teaching support we provide.
