Grammar School



The senior years of our grammar school programme can be best described as the 'business' end of the compulsory level of schooling in Australia. It lays the foundation and creates pathways to further study beyond Year 12 as students seek entry into diploma and degree courses or alternatively into the wider world of employment.

At Holmes Grammar School we are proud to offer this foundation through Year 11 & 12 assisting students to make choices that can take either a vocational or academic direction. Whatever the decision, graduating students at Year 12 can look forward to a Senior Secondary Government Certificate as they continue to forge their own personal journey.

How Holmes does it

At Holmes Grammar School we understand the needs of our students. In a central city location and in an environment that is energetic, vibrant and supported by a caring and friendly staff, we look to engage all students in their studies. With a curriculum underpinned by the study of English language you will be joining a school that values community and places the needs of all of its students at the very heart of its mission.

Our success is measured by the many stories and testimonials of students who have found success beyond their study through their chosen pathway, whether academic or vocational. Holmes’ alumni is proudly diverse and reflects the many study options available to each of them when enrolled into one of our senior secondary programmes.
