About the School

Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) is an independent non-selective Anglican school with an enrolment of approximately 1,600 students.

Spread over two campuses, the School is co-educational from Early Learning to Year 2 and girls only from Years 3 to 12. Boarding facilities are available for girls in Years 7 to 12.

We have grown from a core set of Anglican values. Those values inspire our teaching and learning values, which in turn instil our School Community with the values we express to the world.

Our School Community is a melting-pot of culture and diversity, a place where respect, kindness and fairness forms the very fabric of who we are. Our School is made up of students from thirty-three countries, representing almost thirty different faiths.

With forty different languages spoken by our students, there is a sense of broad-mindedness within the School - if there’s more than one way to say something, there’s certainly more than one way to look at it. This outlook creates empathy and understanding.

We ensure every girl and young woman has the opportunity to play to her strengths, inside and outside the classroom. Alongside four Rhodes Scholars, CGGS has produced Olympians, award-winning lawmakers, a Supreme Court judge, spiritual leaders and an aerospace engineer - just to name a few.
