Join us in Year 5

Year 5 is an exciting time to join Central Coast Grammar School, offering an energizing launch pad for your child’s journey beyond primary school. There's time and space to form friendships, develop strong study habits and try out new cocurricular clubs before moving up to Senior School. For Year 5 students, NAPLAN results rank CCGS in the Daily Telegraph's top 100 primary schools in NSW, coming 51st based on average NAPLAN scores.

Adapting to a new school and an unfamiliar environment can be easier in Year 5 than in Year 7 - while friendship groups are more fluid and adolescence hasn't kicked in. You won't be alone - a whole class is added in Year 5, bringing a fresh group of personalities and new friendships to the mix. Secure your place in senior school, as the increase in Year 5 entry has reduced our capacity to enrol in Year 7.
