Our Board | Central Coast Grammar School

Our Board

Central Coast Grammar School Limited (ABN: 85 002 839 607) is a not for profit registered charity governed by a School Board of nine expert volunteers representing a broad cross-section of the community.

Trading surpluses each year are reinvested in the school to maintain and develop infrastructure. The school has no private owners, so no dividends or returns are paid.
