A Coeducational Independent Anglican School from Prep to Year 12. Students are offered an environment where they can achieve academic excellence and grow. As an Anglican School we are bound by strong values and have high expectations of our staff and students. The School is in close partnership with the local Parish of Hume and St Peter’s Church, whom we share facilities. We have an open enrolment policy and welcome students from all denominations and faith backgrounds, as well as children from families with no particular religious commitment.
Hume Anglican Grammar offers a broad, values-centred and Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) compliant curriculum. We are structured into two schools for the purposes of the delivery of the academic program, pastoral care and organisation of leadership.
Each of the schools (Primary and Secondary) caters for the unique needs of students and implements practises appropriate for that developmental stage. Most importantly, one of the great benefits of a Prep to Year 12 school is the smooth transition we can provide between the Primary and Secondary areas. Also, an additional class is added at Year 7 so there are a number of new students commencing. These junior secondary years are vibrant, challenging and appropriate to adolescents.
We inspire in our students a love of learning, and through a rigorous and rounded educational experience, provide them with the means to achieve a fulfilling life.
Student wellbeing at the core is a message that echoes across Hume at every level. This, our fundamental belief, is that young people who are genuinely happy, will engage, aspire and thrive within our learning community. Pastoral care and empathy for our students’ needs are at the heart of all programs. We believe students should be afforded the opportunity to achieve their personal best. We rejoice in their success and celebrate together their achievements.
Our before and after school care program is run by World for Kids and is very popular with many of our families. The program is open from 6:30am each morning and until 6:30pm each evening at reasonable rates; with Commonwealth subsidies available for some families.
