Important Announcement from the Launceston Church Grammar School Board


Members of the Launceston Grammar Community,

I’m writing to communicate the details of some important changes soon to take place at Launceston Church Grammar School.


Stephen Norris will conclude his role as Headmaster in December 2017. Over 15 successful years, Stephen has contributed enormously to the stability, culture and reputation for excellence of one of Australia’s oldest and most prestigious schools.


Despite challenging economic conditions in Northern Tasmania, student numbers have remained strong. 2017 enrolments are at optimal levels across most year groups, and the school is in a positive financial position.


Launceston Grammar students achieve consistently competitive TCE results, staff morale is high, and the School’s student population is diverse, inclusive and tolerant. The School enjoys deep relationships with its graduates, and strong philanthropic support for Launceston Grammar reflects the commitment and respect of the Launceston community.


The School’s position of strength offers the right conditions for transition, and I am confident that Launceston Grammar’s enviable reputation will attract appropriately qualified applicants eager to help write the next chapter in our great School’s history. The process of recruiting Stephen’s successor is in its early stages, and I welcome interest from those seeking information on this vacancy.


With regards,


Michael Bennett

Chairman, Launceston Church Grammar School Board
