At Blue Mountains Grammar School we are growing young people who are fully equipped to meet the challenges of tomorrow, young people with hope in their hearts, purpose in their minds and courage in their lives. To achieve this we focus all that we do, including every academic and co-curricular program, on growing character; moral character and intellectual character. We seek to ensure that our students achieve the highest academic outcomes possible for them whilst also ensuring they are becoming adaptable young people of integrity with the capacity to communicate, collaborate and reflect. We aim to equip them with a comprehensive suite of learning dispositions that will enable them to flourish in a world of fast-paced change.
We have recently announced the introduction of a range of new initiatives directed towards these goals for students in Years 5 to 8. These new initiatives retain the benefits of our unique Performing Arts and Cultural Studies enrichment courses currently offered and add targeted STEM modules (Years 5 to 8) and Expedition Time (Years 7 and 8).
To learn more about the new programs we are introducing in Stage 3 (Years 5 and 6) and Stage 4 (Years 7 and 8) from 2020, please download the brochures published below:
The School publishes The Altiora magazine twice yearly, at the conclusion of each Semester. The Altiora provides an overview of the highlights of the semester, from students' achievements to sporting outcomes and Alumni news.
As BMGS continues to move towards environmental sustainability and reduce the School’s impact on the environment, we have transitioned the biannual Altiora magazine to an electronic version.
The Semester 1 (Vol 68) and Semester 2 (Vol 69), 2018 editions of the Altiora may be downloaded here:
