For almost 140 years, Brisbane Girls Grammar School has been renowned as a leading, academic, non-selective school that specialises in the education of adolescent girls and development of accomplished and confident young women. It aspires to be a leader in exceptional scholarship. The School values and nurtures the individual strengths and interests of its students, and girls are encouraged to set themselves high standards, to be strong and resilient in their endeavours and to contribute confidently to their world with wisdom, imagination and integrity.

The School’s life-wide approach to learning and inclusive fee structure gives girls access to enriching experiences in the arts, music, sports, culture and service. By providing a combination of leading-edge ideas in teaching and learning, and innovative programmes and learning spaces, Grammar girls develop a joy for learning while being challenged to be the best they can be—our exceptional academic record is testament to our success in providing an outstanding, well-rounded education.

The School’s teaching and professional staff are specialists in the education of girls and work in partnership with their families to support them through their high school years. Grammar girls also benefit from access to an inspiring network of Grammar Women who remain actively engaged with the School.

The School has a strong focus on service, and students consistently engage with and contribute to the physical, emotional, intellectual and economic development and welfare not only of their School community but of society at large. In addition to the Brisbane campus at Spring Hill, the School has Marrapatta, a well-resourced outdoor education facility, located 175 kilometres north of Brisbane in the Mary Valley and the Fig Tree Pocket Sports Campus. Marrapatta provides a range of experiences and challenges specifically designed for girls. Outdoor Education is regarded as an integral part of the School’s curriculum emphasising environmental awareness, enhanced self-knowledge, improved interpersonal skills and physical challenge. In 2013 the Fig Tree Pocket Sport Campus was opened to provide Grammar girls with their own home ground and a space where their connection to nature can be explored.

In anticipation of future educational needs and the introduction of Year 7 students in 2015, the School has built a new pool and undercover sports area and provides a wireless network that supports multiple teaching and learning technologies, with a strong emphasis on the flexibility provided by Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) applications. In 2015 the new Research Learning Centre will be completed, providing a state-of-the-art teaching and learning space for all students.

The impressive educational activities of the Brisbane Girls Grammar School students and staff can be viewed on our website, which profiles the energy, optimism and effectiveness of the School's initiatives and achievements and its aspiration to be a leader in exceptional scholarship.
