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