Our dynamic Preparatory School, located a short walk from the Senior School campus, provides about 600 boys from Kindergarten to Year 6 with the foundations for a life-long love of learning.
The unofficial motto of the Prep is ‘have a go’. We encourage the boys to constantly try new things.
Welcome to Knox Grammar Preparatory School, a place where boys can be boys. We pride ourselves on being a school which specialises in Prep boys’ education. At Knox we have a team of teachers who are dedicated to the education of boys and they truly understand boys and their needs.
We know that boys need to run around, to climb and explore, to be active and on the move and that they learn best when they are making and doing. We also know that boys will make mistakes and that we need to be there to assist them to make good choices.
In the Prep School we encourage our boys to try to become the very best boy they can be in all areas. Our unofficial motto is “have-a-go” as our boys are supported to constantly try new things. We acknowledge that all boys have strengths and it is through trying new things and a variety of activities that our boys will be able to identify what they are good at.
Knox is a school which provides for all boys, no matter what their area of strength or expertise. We have an outstanding academic program, a broad sports program, an excellent music program, a diverse choice of co-curricular clubs and a strong values based education. With the right attitude your son will thrive at Knox. Our goal is to provide for the whole boy so that he becomes the very best young man he is capable of becoming.
Knox is blessed with beautiful grounds, playing fields and world class facilities, which create a very special learning environment for our boys.
Most importantly, we are a school filled with very happy boys and teachers.
Welcome to our very special Prep School.
Mark Hemphill, Head of Preparatory School
