Junior School – Coed Prep to Year 6

As from 2017, the SMS Junior School will be co-educational from Prep to Year 6. All boys will remain at St Margaret’s School in Berwick to complete their primary education before transitioning to Berwick Grammar School in Officer in Year 7.

Next year, however, our current Year 5 BGS boys will remain at BGS during Year 6 and continue with the Primary Years Programme whilst being incorporated more into the current BGS day to day structure. They have become very familiar with school life at BGS so it is in the boys’ best interest for them to remain in Officer.

All Junior School students will continue to be engaged and enthusiastic learners at SMS from 2018.  We have appreciated the input and support from staff and parents regarding this important decision as we plan for the future and the overall education and wellbeing of our students.
