Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) is the home of courageous and brave-hearted young women.

In partnership with our families, we provide an exceptional, holistic education, striving to equip students with the academic learning, emotional intelligence and creative skills to become resilient, compassionate, critical thinking leaders, ready to fulfil their potential as global citizens.

CGGS is the only all-girls’ boarding school in the Canberra region and our staff provide an extension to the support students receive from their classroom teachers, tutors and Heads of House. 

Boarding is an integral feature of CGGS and the School is enhanced by its boarding community. We treat each other with compassion and kindness, and respect diversity. 

Our boarding families trust us to provide their daughters with the highest quality education as well as give them a home away home.
