Class of 2019 Academic Results
The 2019 Seniors are congratulated for continuing Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School’s 127-year history of developing confident well-educated young women.
Students study for an Overall Position (OP) in order to gain entrance into universities and TAFE institutes. Ninety-one (91%) of the 2019 Seniors were OP-eligible and awarded an Overall Position which reflects their aspirations for tertiary study. Twenty-eight (28%) attained an OP 1 to 5, 69% attained an OP 1 to 10, and 92% attained OP 1 to 15. This data includes our VISA students. The following graph displays the 2019 OP results.

It is also important to note that 100% of the 2019 Seniors attained a Queensland Certificate of Education and five students completed a range of certificates during their senior years.
These results will provide the Seniors with many course options at a range of tertiary educational institutions in Queensland, interstate and overseas, and opportunities to obtain rewarding work placements.
The academic results of the 2019 Seniors follow this year’s excellent Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 NAPLAN results which placed Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School including Ipswich Junior Grammar School among the highest performing schools in Queensland and the highest performing school in the Ipswich region.
The academic outcomes are a result of diligent day and boarding students; positive, personalised programs; high performing teachers; great resources and facilities; and, a strong, supportive, family orientated community.
It is important to remember, however, that Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School including Ipswich Junior Grammar School educates day and boarding students to develop character and citizenship that will enable them to lead happy and successful lives as local and global citizens in a technologically advanced 21st century. Academic achievement is one part of each student’s holistic education.
We wish all students, parents, staff and members of the wider school community a restful, safe and festive Christmas season.
