Girls Grammar provides girls from all backgrounds with access to a caring, safe, yet challenging, educational environment in which there is a good balance between academic, cultural and sporting activities.

The School Motto – Non Scholae sed Vitae – Not only for School but for Life we are learning – epitomises the philosophy of the School.

Choosing a School

Education is an investment that lasts a lifetime. In researching and choosing the right school, parents and students should assess whether a school is suitable before making a final decision. At Girls Grammar we believe that schools are not ‘one size fits all’. It is crucial that the educational environment is a good fit with the student’s personality, attitude and interests.

Why do families choose Rockhampton Girls Grammar School?

Parents and students choose Girls Grammar for our strong academic results, the breadth of opportunities offered to girls and because of our committed, supportive and close-knit community underpinned by a strong value base.

The Principal, teaching staff, and current students are very welcoming and approachable, and friendships formed within the School community often last for many years.

Our School’s smaller size is a positive influencing factor for many families – every girl has the opportunity to shine and the class sizes ensure that girls are provided with the best educational opportunities possible. Excellent academic results achieved throughout the years have clearly demonstrated this. Girls Grammar is also able to provide real opportunities for students to participate in a large number of sporting and cultural cocurricular activities.
