A balanced, innovative and creative curriculum challenges young minds and equips our students with curiosity, entrepreneurialism, critical thinking skills and the knowledge they will need for the workplaces of the future.

We model ourselves as a teaching and learning community and we encourage the pursuit of excellence in all areas.

We attract outstanding teachers and they promote a love of learning in an environment that fosters curiosity and courage in learning.  All teachers engage deeply in rigorous and regular professional development so they are the very best they can be and can get the very best out of their students. Our students love learning because our teachers love teaching. 

The International Baccalaureate is central to our curriculum focus. We offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP)  for students K – 6 and the ELC and have implemented the Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students in Years 7 – 10.

Students in Years 11 and 12 can choose to study the Higher School Certificate (HSC), the IB Careers-related Programme (CP) or a bespoke pathway to meet their aspirations post-HVGS. HVGS is also working towards implementing the IB Diploma Programme for students in Years 11 and 12.
