Founded in 1908, the Glennie School is an Anglican School for girls from Preparatory to Year 12 with boarding from Year 7. Glennie is located in Toowoomba, the gateway to the Darling Downs and western Queensland. With over 740 girls from Toowoomba, country Queensland, Northern New South Wales, the Northern Territory and overseas, Glennie’s vision is to develop in each girl the intellectual, physical and spiritual potential to be all she can be. Glennie girls are to be educated to the highest academic standards of which they are capable. By understanding their own spiritual dimension, Glennie girls will make a positive contribution to the world. With 102 years as one of Australia’s oldest and renowned day and boarding schools, Glennie is a leader in its innovative use of IT with computer resources integrated at all year levels. Notebook computers are extensively used for lessons, homework, assignments and courses in Multimedia Application and ITS. Cultural programs open a world of artistic endeavour and inspiration, with opportunities in all aspects of performing and fine arts. Our French Immersion program is challenging, with authentic immersion that provides maximum exposure to French and results in language fluency. Fitness and health are promoted as a way of life with a wide range of sports available. The Glennie School is proud of its rich diversity and welcomes Indigenous girls as well as other Australians from rural and regional Queensland and interstate. The staff at Glennie have high expectations of the students and they support them to achieve the best outcomes possible. The Glennie School has enjoyed great success in many areas over the years. The students are academically very successful, and also win many competitions in the sporting arena and the cultural sphere. Whether engaging in debating, Opti-MINDS, titration competitions, Science and engineering challenges, a wide range of sporting competitions, or eisteddfodau, Glennie students achieve impressive results. The Glennie ethos is rich and supportive, with very strong student leadership which encourages and mentors younger girls. The school’s Anglican nature also inspires community service and personal development. In recent years Glennie has embarked on World Challenge adventures, taking girls to far-flung places like Borneo and Cambodia. The Glennie School enjoys excellent levels of contribution from the community of Parents and Friends as well as Glennie Old Girls, who support and promote Glennie in a myriad of ways including scholarships.
