Knox Grammar School


Knox Grammar School (Knox) is a prestigious independent boys’ school located in Wahroonga on Sydney’s North Shore in New South Wales.

Knox opened in 1924 and has operated continuously since then. While the ultimate control of Knox vests in the Uniting Church in Australia, Knox has a council (the Knox Council) which oversees its operation and reports to the Uniting Church, Synod of New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.

Between 2013 to 2017, the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse looked into 137 allegations of child sexual abuse against Knox Grammar. This in itself warranted the Royal Commission to hold an independent public hearing on the school due to its systematic behaviour of child sexual abuse. This was supported by the fact that between  2009 to 2011 numerous teachers of the school were prosecuted and convicted of such offences in New South Wales. These teachers include Roger James; Adrian Nisbett; Damien Vanu; Craig Treloar and Barrie Stewart.

Artemis Legal has represented clients who were students at this school.
