There has been coverage from one media outlet very recently regarding the horrific attack which occurred in Pyrmont a few days ago. Coverage from that media outlet indicated that a boy from Sydney Grammar School was involved in this attack. That media outlet contacted the School by email for comment. In that email the name of the alleged Sydney Grammar School boy was included. The name included is not a Sydney Grammar School boy. We immediately advised this media outlet of this fact.

Grammar’s HSC results in 2019

Updated December 2019

In NESA's published merit lists for 2019, Grammar boys are prominently featured. Three boys achieved a total of 5 First in Course results. Including these first place results, boys at the School earned 41 places in the Top Achievers in Course list. In total, 65 boys were listed as All-Rounders for achieving top band results in 10 or more units, and 175 boys were listed on the Distinguished Achievers list for achieving at least one top band result.

The School's table of ATAR outcomes over time has now been updated with figures for 2019. This table is based on information given to the School directly by the candidates themselves; this information is then checked carefully against the data and scaling statistics provided each year by the Universities Admissions Centre and the NSW Education Standards Authority.
