About Us

The TGS story began in 1857 when planning for the new Grammar School on the North Shore of Auckland began. We are now digitally capturing this rich history, tracing the footsteps of alumni through the years and delivering it to you for your enjoyment. Our key objective is to create a repository in which past and current students, teachers and their families can visit to reminisce and reconnect through the photos, articles and stories of the many generations that have and will become part of the story.
