Girls Grammar tops the State in NAPLAN

Brisbane Girls Grammar School is the top performing school in Queensland for 2016 being ranked first in NAPLAN overall*.

Principal Jacinda Euler said the results are a strong endorsement of the School’s exceptional academic programmes and inspiring learning culture.

‘We are very proud of our girls’ NAPLAN results.  They have worked hard, given their best and deserve these excellent results.

‘As an academically non-selective school that awards no academic scholarships, these results reflect the expertise and care of our teachers and the positive learning environment at Girls Grammar.

‘Our girls are taught to think deeply and to think for themselves and they learn to become exceptional scholars.  Grammar girls balance their academic learning with diverse co-curricular activities and a deep commitment to service involvement.  This helps them to develop into confident and compassionate young women with an intelligent and optimistic outlook on life,’ said Ms Euler.

Standardised NAPLAN testing is completed by all Australian students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9.  The achievements of Year 7 and 9 BGGS students (the only years at the school to take NAPLAN tests) are recorded below.
