House Structure

The House structure at Brisbane Girls Grammar School is the bedrock of the School’s unique and comprehensive system of care. It provides a strong foundation for bonds to be created among girls across all year levels.

Combining a vertical and horizontal pastoral care framework, the Houses offer students much more than groups formed for competition—friendships can blossom alongside study, and barriers between year levels are broken down as the older students help their younger Grammar sisters to find their footing in a secondary school setting.

Heads of House and House Group teachers know and support each girl individually, and students identify strongly with their Houses’ colours, mascots, and unique culture and traditions.

Events such as House Parties, the School’s annual Open Day, Interhouse activities and fundraising for House charities build a sense of House pride, belonging and shared purpose among girls across the School.
