Under the leadership of Principal, Mrs Jann Robinson, the School has seen consistently strong academic results, such that in the last ten years, HSC results have ranked St Luke's as the "Top Independent School" on the Northern Beaches, multiple times.
St Luke's Grammar School offers an expansive array of subjects for the students to study. In addition, there are opportunities for Senior students to incorporate TAFE subjects in their HSC selections.
One of the School's focuses is the 'development of the whole child', which has seen the offering of both the core curriculum and elective subjects continue to thrive at the School.
In Years 7 & 8 (Stage 4), all students study the following subjects:
English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Christian Studies, Drama, Music, Languages (Mandarin, French or Spanish), Technology, Visual Arts, PDHPE, Sport.
In Years 9 & 10 (Stage 5), all students study the core subjects of:
English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Christian Studies, PDHPE, Sport
In addition they study two elective subjects, which include:
Commerce, Drama, Physical Activity & Sports Studies, French, Spanish, Mandarin, Design & Technology, Music, Industrial Technology, Information and Software Technology, Textiles Technology, Open High School Languages (German, Italian, Japanese etc).
In Years 11 & 12, students have the choice of studying 10 - 12 units from the subjects listed on the attached PDF.
St Luke's Grammar School was founded in February 1993, following the amalgamation of three Sydney Anglican Schools Corporation schools on Sydney's Northern Beaches:
The amalgamated K-12 Co-Educational School opened in 1993 with 43 staff and 488 students, under the leadership of Mr John Scott. The School has since grown to be a fully 2-stream Junior School (incorporating Cottage Pre-School) and 4-stream Senior School: over 900 students and 140 staff in 2015.
In 2016, the Anglican Schools Corporation announced that Loquat Valley Anglican School would become part of St Luke's Grammar School. The School is now known as the St Luke's Grammar School, Bayview Campus and caters for students from Cottage to Year 6.
Building work has been extensively and regularly undertaken on the site. The first two decades saw the construction of the John Scott Hall, Drama Studio, Junior Centre (for Cottage to Year 1 classes), Resource Centre (incorporating Library, Administration and TAS classrooms), the Link Building, Year 12 Study Centre, and a four-storey building (incorporating outdoor courts, two-storey car park, multi-purpose space, classrooms and visual art facilities).
More recently, the School has seen the complete refurbishment of the Senior School, providing more than 20 new classrooms, four state-of the art Science Laboratories, outdoor walkways and landscaping and a totally re-developed Quadrangle for senior students - The Bennett Quad - and entrance way.
In 2016, the School embarked on the refurbishment of the John Scott Hall in order to create a contemporary air-conditioned performance space and rehearsal room fitted with best-in-class fit-out, acoustics and lighting. And for the first time, the Hall when completed – including the stage - will be fully accessible for the disabled.
In addition as part of this project:
At the Bayview Campus over the 2016 - 2017 summer vacation, building works were completed to:
With John Scott's retirement in 2004, Mrs Jann Robinson assumed leadership of the School. Mrs Robinson brought in new Strategic Plans to take the School into its next stage, focused on the theme of students 'making a difference in the world'.
In 2007 a whole school pedagogical framework was introduced to differentiate the curriculum, while subject choices have been expanded to cater for the interests and abilities of the students. In 2014, the new teaching and learning platform, Learning@StLuke's was launched.
Since its foundation in 1993, the School's academic profile has been strengthened and the development of Christian character through service both locally and internationally is at the heart of the School. There has been an expansion of the Chaplaincy department, significant development in the integrated use of technology across the School and major growth in sports, co-curricular activities and overseas trips (languages, cultural, service, history).
