Trinity provides an abundance of opportunities which fosters the development of boys into men and allows boys to turn potential into reality.

Head Master's welcome

Our mission at Trinity Grammar School is to help boys discover their innate talents and unlock their full potential within the context of a supportive Christian environment. We have guided boys to grow in mind, body and spirit for over a century and we know what boys need to truly flourish and succeed.

Each year when I meet the new boys on their first day of school, I am filled with the hope that every student will be able to discover his unique God-given talents, enabling him to grow into the best man he can be.

With an extensive range of world class educational programmes — including the International Baccalaureate, vocational competencies and one of the broadest range of co-curricular activities — Trinity provides a wealth of opportunities for every boy to develop his skills, whatever they might be.

Fuelled by a pastorally aware culture with exceptionally high levels of individual student attention, we pride ourselves on knowing, understanding and nurturing every student. I have the privilege and the pleasure of conducting one-on-one interviews with our senior graduating students. I witness the true success of a Trinity education by speaking with the well-rounded young men our boys have become.

If you want your son to receive an outstanding Christian holistic education where he will be nurtured to grow into a man who is clear and passionate about his unique talents, then consider Trinity. We look forward to welcoming your family to the Trinity community where your son will have his best opportunity to realise his unique potential, passions and purpose in life.

“Detur Gloria Soli Deo” (Let glory be given to God alone),

Our History

Just before the start of WWI in 1913, a visionary by the name of George Chambers established a small parochial school in the Sydney parish of Holy Trinity at Dulwich Hill. Twenty-nine boys were enrolled at the opening of the School year in 1913, and the number had reached 57 at the end of that year. G.A. Chambers had been appointed Rector of Holy Trinity Dulwich Hill in 1911. Over the next 15 years he accomplished much, one notable achievement being his appointment as foundation Bishop of Central Tanganyika. Here the link between Trinity Grammar and the Church Missionary Society was forged. Having been appointed Warden of the School, Chambers’ immediate task was to search for a Head Master. Thus K.T. Henderson became the first Head Master of Trinity Grammar in February 1913. Henderson, who served a term of only 6 months, was followed by W.G. Hilliard.

In November 1915, the School formulated its motto, “Detur Gloria Soli Deo” (Give glory to God alone). The School colours were chosen to reflect the liturgical season of Trinity, namely green. However, by 1942 the prospects for Trinity were so grim that it was decided to close the School. As a last attempt to save the School, the Council appointed J. Wilson Hogg as Head Master in 1944. Mr Hogg was an educational visionary; he moulded a school and made a reality of the hopes and aspirations of the Founder. When J. Wilson Hogg retired in 1974, Trinity was flourishing and had become one of the leading Independent schools in NSW. In 1975 Roderick Ian West was appointed the School’s tenth Head Master.

In his 21 years as Head Master, Mr West presided over a most ambitious period of sustained growth for the School. Mr West continued to set a style which has brought the School to great eminence and international recognition and under his leadership the School continued to prosper.

Mr Milton Cujes was appointed Head Master at the start of third term 1996. An Old Boy of the School, he was Captain in 1968 and returned as a teacher from 1972 to 1981. Mr Cujes returned to Trinity to lead the School into the new millennium. Since 1996 the School has continued to thrive with some 2000 students, building on what has gone before; taking on new initiatives; seeking challenges such as the International Baccalaureate, the Middle School concept, the new Founder’s Building complex, car parks, the Junior School and the Aquatic Centre.
