St Lukes Grammar School

About

Leadership & Staff

The Principal

St Luke’s Grammar School is excited to welcome new Principal, Mr Geoff Lancaster, to the School. Mr Lancaster, a future-focused and innovative educator, believes that the heart of education is education of the heart.

 

It is a joy and honour to be the 3rd Principal of St Luke’s Grammar School, since its establishment as a co-educational school in 1993. St Luke’s has built a strong culture of academic rigour in the context of whole person education, where each child is known, supported and challenged as they explore and learn about the world in which we live.

 

A community is made up of many relationships and it is the strength of these relationships that makes St Luke’s a place where students love to come to school each day. Mutual respect between staff, students and our supportive parent body provides a safe and inclusive environment in which each student can thrive as an individual. 

 

The Christian faith underpins and informs the work of the School as we seek to develop young men and women of character, who will stand up against injustice and serve the communities in which they live. 

 

It is an exciting time to be a student, and St Luke’s well developed learning culture and agility to respond to evidence based innovations enable it to provide stimulating opportunities for our students inside and outside the classroom. We are future focussed and committed to ensure that St Luke’s offers all students the opportunity to find their passion and pursue it - in any field of endeavour.

 

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our wonderful community.
