We believe our long history of high academic and cultural achievement is a direct outcome of employing high-calibre staff and allowing them the time and space to focus on students’ individual needs.

Many of our teachers endorse their knowledge with extra qualifications in particular curriculum subjects. In many primary schools, the same teacher teaches all subjects. At Cathedral Grammar we introduce specialist teachers at every year level for particular subjects. Dedicated specialist teachers take students for physical education, art, music, religious education and computer studies.

Increasingly as children move beyond Year 5, many other curriculum subjects are delivered by teachers who specialise in particular subjects. (e.g. science, history, geography, mathematics, English). An extensive range of independent music, speech, singing and drama teachers, and sporting coaches are available to complement the school teaching staff.
