Through the diverse experiences offered at Girls Grammar, students are inspired to dare to dream, test the unfamiliar, and lead lives enriched by learning.

By balancing academic learning with enriching co-curricular activities underpinned by a comprehensive Student Care Program, students develop into well-rounded, capable, confident and independent young women who embark on diverse and fulfilling careers. Many of the school’s exceptional alumnae maintain close relationships with Girls Grammar beyond school.
