Glennie girls are known for their compassion, confidence and integrity; characteristics which they wear with pride. When you meet a Glennie Old Girl she will speak fondly and with gratitude of her time at The Glennie School and the fine education that she received whilst here. This is not surprising, as we provide an environment where girls thrive intellectually, emotionally, culturally, physically and spiritually.

Your daughter will be supported and encouraged every step of the way by professional and caring staff, to develop skills and characteristics to be All She Can Be® in myriad situations and contexts. Our all-encompassing education is underpinned by a strong Anglican Ethos and lived Christian values.

At Glennie we are passionate about girls’ education; we know that girls excel in an environment where they feel free to be themselves. Research tells us that single-sex schooling for females has a positive impact on many aspects of their lives, particularly academic, outlook and social. They tend to be more confident and assertive and feel empowered to behave in a more competitive way.

I encourage you to come for a visit to chat about what we have to offer your daughter. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the Glennie family.

The Glennie School is an all-girls day and boarding school, located in Toowoomba, Queensland. Glennie provides a well-rounded education, from Kindergarten to Year 12, grounded by Christian values within the Anglican ethos.

The school is large enough to offer a broad curriculum, but small enough that every girl is treated as an individual.

Glennie girls are educated to the highest academic standards of which they are capable. In addition, Glennie girls are given the opportunities to develop their sporting and cultural talents through a rich, diverse and relevant co-curricular program.

By achieving an understanding of their own spiritual dimension, Glennie girls make a positive contribution to the world with a sense of their own worth and character, in addition to a well-developed sense of citizenship.

We are a strong and vibrant community of parents, girls, staff and friends of Glennie working together with a common goal of supporting and encouraging all Glennie girls. We seek to inspire the girls to make appropriate choices for their future such that they can lead a happy and successful life.

Glennie provides a dynamic learning and living environment where tomorrow's women are encouraged to develop their personal skills and social responsibility whilst engaged in rigorous learning, reasoned thinking and innovative programs.

An all-girls environment allows safe risk taking, is unbounded by notions of 'girls versus boys', encourages academic achievement and develops a greater sense of connectedness with the School and each other.

From Kindergarten to Year 12, Glennie provides the continuity and stability on which young people thrive. Each girl receives the personal attention needed to bring out her best. No matter what her age or ability, the Glennie curriculum is a challenge your daughter will love.

We incorporate the Australian Curriculum delivered by a dedicated and highly qualified team of educators. We offer a broad range of relevant subjects and programs throughout our three distinct phases of Junior Years (K to 6), Middle Years (7 to 9) and Senior Years (10 to 12).
The Glennie School Junior Years campus is a modern facility with specially designed teaching and learning spaces, including a spacious Library, Art Studio and Music rooms and a purpose-built undercover play and sports area.

Middle and Senior Years Library and Classrooms are light and bright, and ergonomically designed to accommodate girls of all ages. Glennie encourages and showcases the extraordinary artistic talents of the girls in a well-resourced Performing Arts Centre.

Surrounded by a garden setting that provides a wonderful ‘green space’ for relaxation and recreational activity, Glennie’s excellent boarding facilities for girls in Year 5 to Year 12 are a modern, comfortable, vibrant and a welcoming ‘home away from home’.

Glennie’s world-class sporting facilities are an athlete’s delight, and include a synthetic track for athletes, indoor heated 25m swimming pool, volleyball, netball and tennis courts, football oval, well-equipped gymnasium and a three court indoor sports centre.

The School has Science Laboratories, an Information Resources Centre (incorporating the School’s two Libraries), wireless networking, computers integrated into the curriculum from Year 5, and facilities for Visual Arts, Food and Fashion, Home Economics and Hospitality training. A dedicated Science Centre complete with 6 laboratories is the home of STEM at Glennie.

The Glennie School is part of National Solar Schools Program funded by the Commonwealth Government and is contributing to its environmental sustainability by the use of solar panels in the Junior Years. Other measures to improve the School's environmental footprint include storing and recycling harvested rainwater, solar heating for filtered bore water supplies to the boarding houses and reduction in electricity usage.

Most sports are played in the local sporting competitions. Extensive performing arts opportunites exist.

 

Boarding at Glennie offers girls friendship, support and independence, with a close connection with family life – a home away from home. From Year 5 to Year 12, Glennie boarding offers the best accommodation and amenities in Toowoomba. There are a number of options from full time to weekly.

 

Glennie’s pastoral care philosophy has developed over a century of experience in caring for and cherishing the growth of each girl. Our pastoral care program is a cornerstone of our duty of care; to develop in Glennie girls the social, emotional and relationship skills that build resilience, strength of character and confidence. This care recognises that each girl is unique and has much to offer the student community and much to learn as she matures into a young woman. All girls are placed in a House group; Hale, Donaldson, Tufnell or Webber, which is led by a senior teacher, the Head of House. The Head of House is a very important element of Glennie’s pastoral care structure, having the overall responsibility for the daily wellbeing of, and interaction with, the girls in the particular House group. The Head of House also interacts with the parents and guardians of the girls as appropriate. This does not exclude the care and attention provided by all her teachers, every day. Within each House, each girl in Secondary School is placed in a Tutor Group led by a Tutor Teacher. Tutor Groups meet every morning to check off daily attendance and also deliver to the girls, important information about daily school requirements. Subject teachers, Tutor teachers, the Chaplain, boarding house staff, Health Centre nurses and the Heads of House all play an important and active role in each girl’s health and welfare whilst at School. A School Counsellor works with the School staff and provides a professional counselling service for girls as appropriate. The Deputy Head and Head of School are also available to provide guidance and meet individually with girls.

Integrity: We are truthful and sincere. We ensure consistency between what we say and what we do, as well as between what we believe and how we behave.
Respect: We respect ourselves and treat others with courtesy, dignity and positive regard. We honour the rights of others. We respect our school, the environment and the world around us.
Compassion: We are sensitive to the needs of each individual. We support and nurture those less fortunate than ourselves. We treat each other as we wish to be treated ourselves.
Courage: We continue to strive to improve as individuals and we remain positive, resilient and forward-thinking, despite adversity or challenge. We know that perseverance, effort and a growth mindset can help us as individuals and as members of a team, for the benefit of ourselves and our community.
To develop in each Glennie girl the intellectual, physical and spiritual potential to be All She Can Be®.

Glennie girls are to be educated to the highest standards of which they are capable. In addition, Glennie girls are to be given the opportunities to develop their sporting and cultural talents through a rich, diverse and relevant co-curricular program. By achieving an understanding of their own spiritual dimension, Glennie girls will make a positive contribution to the world with a sense of their own worth and character in addition to a well-developed sense of citizenship.

As well-skilled, well-rounded and well-grounded young people of excellent character, integrity and poise, Glennie girls will be able to be all they can be.
As a community where tomorrow’s women learn, our mission is to provide girls with dynamic opportunities in education, training and personal growth which develop their individual potential and prepare them for life. We shall incorporate traditional values within a caring, Christian environment, together with the best contemporary teaching methods and learning experiences.

To make a Glennie education available to as many girls as possible, we offer a number of scholarships, in different categories, providing part remission for tuition fees.  In some cases, part remission for boarding fees may also be provided.

Glennie scholarships are generally offered to girls entering Years 7 and 10 and are based on the results achieved in testing.  Scholarships are offered for three or four years and, following a successful review of progress, are continued until the end of Year 12.  Students may apply for more than one category however, only one scholarship will be awarded per girl.

All scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Principal
