About Brisbane Girls Grammar School

One of Australia’s leading girls’ schools, Brisbane Girls Grammar School is an academically non-selective independent school, established in 1875 as one of Queensland’s original Grammar schools.

As one of Australia’s leading girls’ schools, BGGS strives to enrich girls’ lives through learning, establishing the educational foundation for young women to contribute confidently to their world with wisdom, imagination and integrity.

The School’s curious, adventurous and principled students are supported by a community of parents, alumnae and friends that values the finest traditions and aspirations in education.

Through the diverse opportunities and experiences offered at Girls Grammar, students are inspired to dare to dream, test the unfamiliar, and develop enduring life and leadership skills.

The achievements of the School’s alumnae are exceptional, and many maintain close relationships with Girls Grammar in their lives beyond school.
