Building Better Futures


Lakes Grammar grew out of a commitment by the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle to the provision of a quality Christian education to the communities of the Central Coast. The former Lakes Anglican Grammar School at Summerland Point closed at the end of 2003 and most of its students and staff moved to this new school, Lakes Grammar – An Anglican School. Established in 2004 the school has grown rapidly from a little over 150 in its first year to over 900 in 2021.

Lakes Grammar is part of the Newcastle Anglican Schools Corporation, which supports the Newcastle Anglican Church in its service to the community through quality Christian Education.

From inception until June 2021, Mr Michael Hannah served as Principal, ensuring continuity in programs and policies and stable leadership.  

Mrs Deborah Clancy was commissioned as the school’s second Principal in July 2021. Mrs Clancy was formerly the Head of Boarding and Academic Care (Deputy Headmistress) at St Catherine’s Anglican Girls’ School, Waverley in Sydney.

As a school with a young history, we are in the exciting position of creating and shaping the school’s history here and now. Opportunities to create cultures and set traditions are unfolding before us - a unique aspect within itself.

Future growth plans for the school will see us take our final shape within the next ten years with three classes for each year group from Kindy to Year 6 plus a Year 5/6 Opportunity Class and three classes in each year group from Year 7 to 12.
