St Luke's Grammar School is an independent Anglican, co-educational school, with two campuses on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. One campus is located in Dee Why (Pre-K to Year 12) and a second campus is located in Bayview (Pre-K to Year 6). The School provides a leading edge educational experience for students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12.
Families choose St Luke's because they place value in their child attending a local and reputable mid-size School that seeks to provide small school individualised student focused learning, with larger school co-curricular opportunities, experiences and results.
The School's vision is equipping students to make a difference in the world.
It is the School's desire for its graduates to be people who are service-orientated and who can be an influence for good in their lives and chosen careers beyond the school gate.
St Luke’s Grammar School aims to be a School that provides a
1. Solid Christian Foundation
2. Strong Focus on Learning Excellence
3. Steadfast Commitment to Student Welfare.
The School's Motto is "Christ our Light".
As an Anglican School, students will experience an inclusive community which treats each person as important because they are made in the image of God. The School adopts an intellectual rigor to all subjects and also to the study of the Christian faith. Students are encouraged to bring an open and critical mind and to understand the rich heritage of Christianity. The Bible is the foundation and students are explicitly taught from it. The Christian life of the School, experienced in Chapel and in the community, seeks to be one of restoration, through grace, compassion, justice and humility.
Learning excellence at St Luke’s is achieved through the School’s focus on learning.
With a mission to provide a high quality education within a learning community which values life-long learning, St Luke’s aims to develop students as independent, responsible learners.
Students set academic goals, and reflect upon their learning strategies and progress in order to achieve their goals.
Learning@STLUKE'S is a framework for teaching and learning which identifies learning as the core business of St Luke’s Grammar School.
The model uses Guy Claxton’s Building Learning Power framework which draws together research on how students learn and what capacities strengthen the capacity to learn. Within our framework we have identified 5 R’s associated with learning.
Powerful learners display capacities associated with 4 R’s - Resilience, Resourcefulness, Reflectiveness and Reciprocity (the capacity to learn with others). The 5th R in the Learning@STLUKE'S model is Restoration. While we seek to grow students as learners, more importantly we seek to grow students as human beings.
