We know you want the best for your family. So do we.

Since Ipswich Girl's Grammar School was established in 1892, academic excellence, leadership, individualised care, and preparation for life beyond school have been the cornerstones of our educational philosophy. We strive to develop young people who will take their places confidently in the community and apply the caring values and quality standards they have learned at school to all aspects of their future lives. Girls' Grammar and Junior Grammar students enjoy learning about their world with projects and resources that develop their ability to solve problems, think creatively, act independently, and communicate their ideas effectively. These are the skills that will help them participate with confidence in a complex and changing world. Our staff includes specialist teachers, qualified psychologists, nutritionist, registered nurses and experienced boarding supervisors… because we know that a caring and stimulating environment enhances a student’s efforts to do their best, whatever their age, gender or ability. We understand how young people’s needs and learning patterns change as they grow up. That’s why we offer educational programs that are dynamic, relevant, and practical. It’s also why our study and co-curricular programs are designed to help all students discover the benefits of a balanced lifestyle.

Our teachers are experienced educators
who understand how to bring out
the best in all children. At every
level, learning is designed to inspire,
challenge and motivate students,
encouraging them to pursue their
true potential. The value of learning
is enhanced and specific strategies are
employed to promote students’ use of
efficient and effective tools for learning.

With one-to-one personalised learning, our
students benefit from more student-teacher
interaction and opportunities to focus on their
individual needs.

Our curriculum is innovative, with
uncompromising standards in literacy,
numeracy, critical thinking and inquiry. Courses
and units of study are developed from the
Australian Curriculum and Queensland Studies
Authority syllabi.

IGGS & IJGS are committed to using Dimensions
of Learning, a comprehensive, proven, teaching
framework which underpins our curriculum from
Kindy to Year 12.

The philosophy of Dimensions of Learning is
based around established methods of instruction
which encourages students to become active
and independent learners. It provides them with
strategies for learning which will ensure they can
successfully engage in higher order thinking and
acquire the knowledge and skills they need for
secondary school, and post-school education.

The staged implementation of our 1:1 laptop
program and relevant software reflects the
growing sophistication of our students and
ensures they are well-prepared for a constantly
changing world.

Ipswich Girls' Grammar School offers casual, weekly and full-time boarding for girls from Years 5 to 12. We also offer daily boarding from 3pm-9pm, where students are able to play sport in the afternoon, shower, have dinner and study in the Boarding house.

Weekly boarders may leave on Friday afternoon to spend the weekend with their families and return on either Sunday evening or Monday morning.

Saturday, Sunday or weekend outings with visiting family members are encouraged. In recognition of their growing maturity, all Year 11 and 12 students may take leave on either a Saturday or Sunday.

Younger students share with room-mates, while Year 12 boarders have their own rooms. Weekend activities include chaperoned excursions to cinemas and shops, sports, and school dances.

Our study and recreation programs are designed to help girls make the most of opportunities to excel and to maintain a balanced lifestyle, especially when our School is also their home.

We understand that girls’ needs change as they grow up. That’s why qualified, caring teachers and counsellors, nutritionist, registered nurses, and experienced boarding supervisors are involved in the care and responsibility of our boarders.

We also know that girls still need their mums and dads. So, when Cribb House is your daughter’s home, you can call our toll-free 1800 number any time or keep in touch by email.

At IGGS & IJGS we aim to equip students with life skills to succeed, not just within the classroom but in the real world outside of school. We instil confidence and worth in our students, to ensure they are well-rounded and resilient. We teach the students the power of positive and optimistic thinking, which is important in coping with difficult life events. The Centre for Young Women's Health & Wellbeing, located in the School, is an area where students can relax and focus on their psychological wellbeing.
