Hollywood is acknowledged for its strong academic performances in external assessments such as NAPLAN (National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy) and ICAS (International Competitions and Assessments for Schools) run by the University of New South Wales.

With our own 25m swimming pool and surrounded by substantive ovals, Hollywood Primary School students are actively encouraged to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle. Interschool, after school and weekend sporting activities covering netball, hockey, football and soccer are available and tennis coaching is also available courtesy of a public tennis court 50m from the school boundary.
At Hollywood we care about the whole child and take care to ensure every child is supported along their individual learning journey. We offer a sense of belonging and security for all our children and support actively engaged parents to work with us on creating the best possible environment for our children.
