Knox Grammar, located on Sydney's prestigious North Shore, is an exclusive private school for boys. In order for parents to secure a place at the school for the future inheritors of their millions, registrations must be made at birth. Fees for day boys exceed $20 000 per annum whilst boarding fees are around $50 000.
The Knox community is predominantly white and, despite accusations, is absolutely not elitist. There is only one minority group in the Knox community; Asians (around 5%). Knox boys are fairly tolerant with Asians as long as they're not "too Asian", and fair enough too.
Knox families drive either a Mercedes-Benz, a BMW or a Jaguar. However, there are some who choose to drive a Lexus or an Audi - they are weird, and perhaps poor.
Knox Grammar is part of the CAS (Combined Associated Schools), an exclusive association of private schools across Sydney. The schools compete in sports including rugby, cricket, swimming and athletics. Notably the term "rugby" in the Knox community is always referred to as Union, not League, because everybody at Knox knows Rugby League is a "mug's game" played by uneducated and ill-mannered "wogs" from the Western Suburbs.
There have been four Rhodes Scholars graduate from Knox Grammar, which is reflected in their results as being in the top 60% of all schools across NSW. Notable graduates include (unfortunately Labor leader, but Knox Grammar will take the claim to fame anyway) Hon Gough Whitlam - former Prime Minister of Australia, Hon Sir Kenneth Jacobs - former Justice of the High Court of Australia (thanks to Knox Grammar's justice and anti-prejudice values), John Laws - not manipulative and not right-wing biased radio presenter and Hugh "I may star in Broadway shows and have taken over from Peter Allen but seriously I'm not gay because I went to Knox Grammar" Jackman - actor, to name a few.
Knox Grammar is fanatical about rugby. If you don't play or at least enjoy rugby, you are considered a homosexual, probably from the Eastern Suburbs. The Knox community considers the Eastern Suburbs "a concrete jungle full of pretentious Jews".
Knox Grammar is arguably the ultimate education a man can get.
