Years 5 and 6 at Brisbane Girls Grammar School

Brisbane Girls Grammar School is one of Australia’s leading girls’ schools, preparing girls and young women for challenging, rewarding lives of purpose beyond formal schooling. The broad, liberal education at Girls Grammar provides the foundations for future success. This philosophy has guided the School’s exemplary approach to learning since 1875.

The introduction of Years 5 and 6 in 2026 is an exciting and contemporary evolution of a Girls Grammar education, which for nearly 150 years has been synonymous with the finest traditions and aspirations in education.

The experience of Year 5 and 6 students will, naturally, be quite different from that of our secondary school students in Year 7 to 12. Year 5 and 6 students will be taught in a purpose-designed, five-storey Junior School building—comprising classrooms, a dedicated library, and spaces for play—on Gregory Terrace opposite the School’s historic Main Building.

Junior School students will benefit from the resources and opportunities a BGGS education offers with a model that is inspiring for primary-aged girls and of a standard equal to—but distinct from—the educational offering for which our School is renowned. The tailored Junior School experience will comprise separate academic, co-curricular, and pastoral care (including student leadership) models delivered in a nurturing environment that prepares students, in a developmentally appropriate manner, for secondary schooling.

The School’s existing enrolment process will be maintained—places offered based on date order of original application.

Current information about Years 5 and 6 in 2026 at Girls Grammar is available in the Information Booklet, below. This document will continue to be updated as more details about Years 5 and 6 are confirmed.
