Welcome to HICES

We are a collegial group of Principals from over 70 independent,
co-educational schools across NSW & the ACT. 

Together we regularly engage in convivial professional development for the betterment of all our schools.

Together we promote opportunities for developing and advancing our staff and aspiring leaders.

Together we provide an exciting range of unique opportunities and collaborative experiences for our students that simply would not be possible within the context of one school alone.

Together, we’re making great things happen!

Here's what we love about co-education

From our students

"We are learning how to
do life together"

Georges River Grammar School

From our parents

"A wonderfully inclusive & caring environment"

Roger B
Central Coast Grammar School
