Each and every day, students at Lakes Grammar – An Anglican School are nurtured and encouraged to ‘let their light shine’. Lakes Grammar takes a holistic approach to learning, and views students as ‘the whole child’ considering and planning for their growth academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually.
Our school is blessed to be set in a location surrounded by bushland and open space at the northern end of the Central Coast. The school has two distinct spaces, Junior School (K to 6) and Senior School (7 to 12) which are joined by a boardwalk, providing our students with the tailored environments they each need to grow and develop throughout their schooling years.
Since opening in 2004, Lakes Grammar has developed an excellent reputation as one of the leading Independent schools in the Central Coast region. The school operates under the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle and has 900 students from Kindergarten to Year 12, predominantly three-stream. Lakes Grammar has a committed and professional staff, a warm parent community, enthusiastic and engaged students and strong, supportive links with the Diocese.
The school utilises a range of contemporary, research-based programs to enhance student engagement including Building Learning Power, KidsMatter, MindMatter, Be You and Cambridge programs. Lakes Grammar is currently implementing the Schools Leading Learning initiative to enhance the analysis of student performance and identify areas for growth based on individual student data.
Academically, every student at Lakes Grammar is catered for through the rich and diverse nature of our subject offerings, our modern and well-appointed learning facilities, our Gifted and Talented and Learning Support programs, as well as our strong co-curricular programs which extend student learning beyond the classroom. With a focus on 21st-century skills, all students are encouraged and taught to be collaborative, critical thinkers who can problem solve.
As a school, we pride ourselves on our close-knit community and our ability to support our students as individuals. Each Campus is supported by a Counsellor, a Chaplain and a Student Wellbeing Co-ordinator who can offer our students and their families pastoral care and other support services if required, as well as facilitating programs focused on building resilience and self-esteem.
