Why Canberra Girls Grammar School?

At Canberra Girls Grammar School we ensure that every student has the opportunity to develop their strengths, inside and outside the classroom. We take pride in our award-winning initiatives, specifically designed to assist students in fulfilling their dreams and create independence and pride - a home for the brave-hearted.

Student Life

At Canberra Girls Grammar School, our students embark on a quest for learning and knowledge, while collecting experiences, skills and friendships that will stay with them. Lifelong learning is a gift that carries through from early childhood to the primary years to the senior school years and beyond. We encourage our students to actively seek experiences that will develop their wisdom and maturity, to ask questions often, and not hesitate to seek help or understanding through their schooling journey.

Our bespoke pastoral care program is designed to support the social and emotional development of our students and complement their academic pursuits. The program is tailored age-appropriately to the needs of our students as they progress through school and is framed by our signature programs.


As a medium-sized boarding house, staff relish the opportunity to familiarise themselves with each and every boarder – with a focus to support and nurture each girl and to value their personal strengths and qualities. Our boarding community includes students from regional and remote locations, local students whose families from the Defence Forces or Foreign Affairs are on overseas postings, and international students.
