Academic Achievements

Girls Grammar’s consistently strong academic results reflect the School’s positive learning environment and reinforce its reputation as one of Australia’s leading girls’ schools.

At Brisbane Girls Grammar School a broad-based, liberal education provides girls and young women with the foundations for future success.

The School is exceptionally proud of its students’ academic achievements and the valuable contributions our alumnae go on to make in their lives beyond School.

The School is academically non-selective (with places offered for Year 7 in strict date order), offers no scholarships and is one of the few schools in Queensland whose entire Year 12 cohort is eligible for an ATAR score.
