Our Learning Environment

At Blue Mountains Grammar School our students are at the heart of all we do. We acknowledge that every child is an individual with unique learning potential and we encourage them to embrace learning and explore their strengths.

Our curriculum process is dynamic, practical, innovative and ever- changing, constantly striving to ensure that the learning undertaken is meaningful, developmental and purposeful. This ensures our students enjoy and are engaged and challenged by their 21st century education.

Our educational practice is underpinned by the need to ensure our students develop future-ready capabilities, so they:

  • are globally aware and engaged;
  • have a capacity to learn, relearn and unlearn;
  • accept responsibility for their learning;
  • are flexible, energetic, creative, critical and deep thinkers;
  • have a strong sense of self-worth and personal identity;
  • have strong self-esteem and are not be afraid to take a risk or to make a mistake;
  • can collaborate and communicate with one another; and
  • are able to form connections with others

All of this occurs in a safe, stimulating, creative, supportive and caring Christian environment.

Our staff constantly review both “best” and “next practice” in order to provide the very best learning environment. For this reason, BMGS is a partner with the Harvard Graduate School of Education’s Cultures of Thinking Project as an effective strategy for maximising student outcomes.
