My Grammar

Why IGGS?


At Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School we know you want the best for your daughter. So do we.


We are an independent, non-denominational, all-girls boarding and day school in Ipswich, south east Queensland that has been offering outstanding secondary education for more than a century. We are highly regarded for our academic excellence and strong School spirit. We share a campus with the co-educational Ipswich Junior Grammar School which caters for boys and girls from Kindy to Year 6. 

At Ipswich Girls’ Grammar (IGGS), you can rest assured you are giving your daughter every opportunity to discover her true potential.

Our mission is to excel at providing all our girls with a positive, personalised, holistic education delivered by professional, dedicated staff in a safe, first-class environment.

Every IGGS girl is important to us. We know her name, her individual gifts and challenges, and her hopes and dreams.

Our girls are independent, well-educated and confident young women. They strive for their personal best in all that they do, as they prepare for higher learning, leadership and life in today’s globalised world.

Girls can join us in our Early Education Centre from the age of three, and move through the Junior, Middle and Senior Years on our expansive campus that overlooks the city of Ipswich and Bremer River.

Boarders from regional Australia and around the world enhance our vibrant School community. Girls come to us from Year 5 and are cared for in our modern, home-away-from-home boarding facility, Cribb House.

Our School is a caring, family environment, energised with inspired and independent young women.
