Our History

Cobram Anglican Grammar School began in 2000 as Christ the King Anglican College (CKC). The College had a founding enrolment total of 26 students spread across Years 5, 6 and 7.

The original College site was once a thriving orchard. The prominent local Cornish family generously donated the land.

The founding Principal, Mr. Andrew Williams, worked tirelessly to establish the school in the local community.

Founding members of staff were Mrs. Tricia Seccull, Mrs. Heather Stammers, Mrs. Simone Tynan and Mrs. Allyson Willis.

The original College consisted of one building incorporating the Principal's office, library, staffroom and two classrooms.
