Unity Grammar Junior School (K-6)
Our Islamic faith drives the pursuit of excellence and a steadfast commitment to quality education.
Excellence in schooling is about more than just teaching a curriculum. Unity Grammar is a place where children even from as young as Kindergarten learn essential life skills and develop important attitudes that shape personality and character.
Every student knows that they are an important part of our ‘family’. Unity Grammar has a proven and successful track record in meeting the differing needs of learners in each phase of their development from childhood through adolescence to young adulthood.
As a community and family-oriented school, we work with our students, and with you, to develop young men and women who will reach their full potential. They will seize all of life’s opportunities with a positive attitude and embrace the joys and challenges of the future.

Student Shura Councils (SSCs) and student leadership positions provide opportunities to lead academic, debating and sport teams as part of the leadership experience at Unity Grammar.
At Unity Grammar, Leadership is addressed in the classroom where students investigate past and present leaders, including key Islamic figures learn leadership skills and develop initiatives to enrich the lives of their peers.
