A Girls Grammar education prepares girls for the world beyond our white picket fence. Girls develop the skills, learning opportunities and experiences to prepare them for their future lives, studies and careers.

Life after Girls Grammar

Reflecting our life-wide approach to learning, a small number of students choose to defer their studies and take part in organised exchanges, employment opportunities or volunteer work.
