Welcome to Rockhampton Girls Grammar, a school community with more than 127 years' history of educating strong women. Our rich heritage and traditions, combined with our future-focused educational philosophy, ensure our girls are prepared with the intense learning foundations and personal capabilities they need to engage effectively in what is our increasingly complex world.
Girls are our specialty! As Rockhampton's only girls' school, we provide lifelong benefits that can only be gained by attending a girls' school, notably eliminating gender beliefs and assumptions. From Prep to Year 12, every aspect of teaching and learning is tailored to girls, developing their self-belief, growing their leadership, and empowering them with the skills and confidence to be capable. These ethical young women lead full and rewarding lives beyond their schooling years.
Regardless of the pathway they pursue after school; we know that girls need rich, engaging learning experiences during their formative years. At Girls' Grammar, we are committed to high-quality teaching where girls are nurtured, challenged, and supported. Our teachers maintain high expectations for our students, encourage curiosity, collaboration, questioning, and problem-solving, and provide learning experiences that foster their intellectual character and social and emotional growth.
Girls Grammar is a boarding school - not a school with a boarding program. One-third of our students are boarders - it's central to what we do. We provide a home away from home where community, belonging, and inclusiveness are fostered, and girls make friendships and memories that last a lifetime.
The right school is so essential for the woman your daughter will become, and we know that the decision about your daughter's education is one of the most important decisions you will make. We value a holistic education where your daughter's gifts and talents can be nurtured – in partnership with you. It would be a privilege to welcome you to Girls' Grammar, to show you around our campus, and to discuss how Girls Grammar can be the right school for your daughter.
Our girls need to be creative. This can be achieved with research-backed teaching methodologies. A broad curriculum, supported by fit-for-purpose technology and resources, will allow them to explore all their options and keep future pathways open. Our work is centered on academic excellence, and we also know that success means something different to every girl. Each girl's progress is individually tracked - and much more than twice a year! Helping your daughter achieve her first choice of a university course or career is our core business.
Our girls need to be confident. Participation in sporting, cultural, and enrichment pursuits offer your daughter the chance to learn lifelong skills and capabilities, including leadership, public speaking skills, sporting prowess, competitiveness, and teamwork. At Girls Grammar, we prioritize our girls' holistic development to grow as well-rounded, confident, curious, and healthy individuals!
Girls need to be connected, and Girls Grammar provides a strong sense of family and community. We provide opportunities for our girls to connect and build positive relationships so that every individual's worth is acknowledged and valued. Our connections are further developed through our Old Girls Association, a rich community of women who serve and engage in our school community and work towards improving women's education in Central Queensland. Your daughter will become a part of Alumnae's family network around the region, the state, the nation, and the globe. Who knows where these links may take her? Who knows what she will be able to do as a future Girls Grammar Girl?
As a leading center of education for girls, Girls Grammar is an independent non-denominational school offering day and boarding facilities for continuous education from Prep to Year 12. Boarding is available from Year 6.
Our students come from diverse backgrounds across the state, the Northern Territory, and internationally.
Girls Grammar specializes in girls' education. Research shows that girls achieve and learn better in girls-only schools. In a single-sex school, girls are surrounded by female role models, self-confidence is nurtured in a supportive environment, and stereotypes about what girls can or should study do not exist. Girls in girls' schools are also more likely to continue to play team sports into their senior years.
At Girls Grammar, equal opportunity is not an issue because girls get every opportunity. Our students are nurtured, challenged, and supported to participate, collaborate, think critically, and achieve. Every aspect of teaching and learning is tailored to girls, developing their self-efficacy, growing their leadership, and empowering them with the skills and confidence to compete, lead, and take risks in our 21st-century world.
Besides excellent primary and secondary educational opportunities, students also have access to the Central Queensland University (CQU), which has established a first-class reputation for its educational offerings, particularly in Business, Health and Engineering. Girls Grammar also collaborates with the Rockhampton College of TAFE (now merged with CQU), which also offers an excellent variety of courses and study options for girls seeking to broaden their education and post-schooling pathways.
Our students enrich our school community. When your daughter joins Rockhampton Girls Grammar School, she will walk down the same path as generations of amazing women before her who have experienced our unique educational environment and moved on to make a difference in the world.
Every girl from Prep to Year 12 deserves the opportunity to realize her full potential, draw forth her talents and discover new ones in a setting where she is valued for who she is and what she brings to the learning journey. All of our Girls Grammar girls are Clever, Confident, and Connected.
