Established in 1985, Central Coast Grammar Schools
Founding Charter was to be a place of honest
endeavour, striving to meet the individual needs of
its pupils, and drawing out from them their best efforts
in the varied fields in which their talents lie.
of the Central Coast Grammar School Erina, Central
CCGS opened its doors on 6 February 1985 with 165
pupils enrolled and a teaching staff of 19. The original
few buildings that dotted along the hillside looked
forlorn when set within the spacious rolling fields.
Original photos show a sea of happy faces, delighted
with their country setting. Dr Ron Chambers
was the Founding Headmaster and led our school through
a period of growth until his retirement in 1987.
Mr Richard Lornie, the schools Founding Deputy
Head, was appointed Headmaster. His 20-year leadership
brought CCGS to the forefront of independent education
on the Central Coast.
As student numbers exceeded 1000, CCGS was structured
into three developmental stages to reflect the differing
needs of students as they journey through school:
Junior School (K-6), Middle School (7-9) and Senior
Mr William Low became the 3rd Headmaster of CCGS.
Taking a look at the magnificent setting and first
class facilities we enjoy today, its hard to
imagine our founding students clambering over muddy
ditches to get to class when the rains came.
a quarter of a century later, we continue to stay
true to our Founding Charter. Our community of educators
have dedicated themselves to the task set before them
to help every child reach their potential,
earning CCGS its reputation as the flagship educational
institution within the Central Coast region.
we are a non-selective school, our students achieve
consistently outstanding results in public examinations.
More importantly, we take pride in the young men and
women who have passed through our gates and continue
to make their mark and contribute significantly to
society, both at home and abroad.
Vita et Scientia Life and Knowledge. Our school
motto and the tree emblem represent the intertwining
of life and knowledge and our leafy environment.
