Oxford Falls Grammar School

Oxford Falls Grammar School (OFGS) is a Christian co-educational school for students from Kindergarten to Year 12 located in a picturesque natural setting on Sydney's Northern Beaches.

Our mission is to develop and strengthen students' academic skills, social abilities, spiritual awareness and personal character in a nurturing and inspiring Christian environment.

Through professional, quality teachers, and our extensive core curriculum, students' learning experience is enhanced in the Key Learning Areas (KLAs). We also offer exciting opportunities in Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Technology, Sports and Personal Development.

Facilities

Located on Sydney's Northern Beaches, the Oxford Falls Grammar School campus is situated in leafy surrounds on Oxford Falls Road. It is hemmed by Dreadnought Road and Wakehurst Parkway, enabling easy main-road access. With comprehensive school bus routes, we are accessible to families from both coastal suburbs (Mosman to Palm Beach) and northern suburbs (from Roseville Bridge to St Ives and Terrey Hills).

The campus is designed to maximise the optimal learning and social opportunities of our students.

Our modern buildings and beautifully landscaped grounds contribute to providing a wonderful environment for our students' school experience.

Junior School

In our Junior School, experienced, caring and committed teachers work to help each child reach their full potential.

For the little ones starting school, we ensure a smooth transition from Preschool to 'big' school through our wonderful 'Buddy' system. Our Year 6 students develop mentoring and leadership skills by nurturing trusting relationships with their Kindy 'buddies'.

Our Year 5 intake and program prepares the upper Junior School students for Senior School.

Outdoor education such as camps and extra curricular activities in dance, sporting gala days and cultural days also facilitate more complex social interactions, fostering self-awareness, and developing personal character.

Senior School

In our Senior School we encourage students in and beyond academic pursuits so they mature as well-balanced adults.  Our integrated pastoral care program and personal development seminars equip senior students to graduate from school as competent individuals willing to assume active roles in their local communities and wider society.

This is well summed up by our 2009 Year 12 School Captain, Jonathon Shannon who said, 'OFGS has equipped us with a belief in our own self worth, a belief in the worth of others and a belief in Christ. These values are built up through an environment where every student has the opportunity to shine, the opportunity to be generous and the opportunity to love God. For this I am extremely grateful.'

We provide a comprehensive list of subjects for stages 4, 5 and 6 (Years 7-12). There are exciting opportunities to engage in such as musical and dramatic pursuits, visual arts, Technical and Applied Sciences, as well as environmental, sporting, leadership and representation prospects. Via our unique partnership with Christian Colleges Northside, we are also able to offer extended subject choices at Stage 5 and Stage 6 of the Senior School years.
