Boarding Options

At Ipswich Girls’ and Junior Grammar School, we offer girls from around Australia and overseas a stable, well-rounded educational experience in our highly supervised, supportive family environment.

For families that need flexibility and convenience, we offer casual, weekly and full-time on-site boarding for girls from Year 5 to Year 12.

As a boarder, your daughter will be safe, comfortable, well fed, highly supervised, academically and socially supported.

Our recently renovated Cribb House is a multi-level, home-away-from-home fitted with essential security features and alarmed every evening. The House stands in the middle of our campus and overlooks the city of Ipswich and the School’s extensive, landscaped grounds.

Our girls eat healthy meals planned by our nutritionist and made fresh in our Dining Hall each day.

Your daughter’s health and wellbeing are paramount, and our dedicated teachers, counsellors, nutritionist, registered nurse and experienced boarding supervisors and staff are all on hand to take good care of her.

Throughout her learning adventure she will have academic support and access to resident staff each evening to assist her with homework over a nightly, two-hour supervised study session.

We understand she will need time to herself and part of the structured life in our boarding community is down time. Our boarders are encouraged to become involved in some of the School’s many co-curricular activities and have plenty of time to socialise with friends.

Boarding will foster your daughter’s independence and personal growth under the watchful eye of our teachers and mentors. From the moment she joins us she will become part of a special, inclusive community where she will make lifelong friends.
