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 127 years.
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.
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, on-site boarding facility, Cribb House.
Our School is a caring, family environment, energised with inspired and independent young women.
Values – At IGGS we value diligence, excellence, respect, integrity and care. These values influence an IGGS girl’s self-worth, her behaviour and the way she interacts with her peers and the wider community.
Mission – Shaped by our proud history and traditions and focused on academic excellence, our school provides a personalised, holistic education by expert staff in engaging learning environments.
At Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School we give your daughter every opportunity to realise her full potential. IGGS girls receive more attention in every class, every day and are engaged and challenged by our rigorous academic curriculum.
