This is Ipswich Grammar School. The oldest grammar school in Queensland and a Prep to Year 12 independent day and boarding school. Our distinctive culture, borne out of our 156-year heritage and traditions, sets us apart from other boys’ schools.
Our boys live and breathe our motto – Labore Et Honore – to work hard with honour. We challenge our staff and our boys to be exceptional performers every day and we invite you to be part of our community.
With over 150 years of experience in teaching boys, we understand what makes them tick.
Boarders enrich our school in many ways. Their presence creates a fabric of community, of diverse culture and their leadership of fellow students profoundly enhances the experience for day students. At Ipswich Grammar School we welcome boarders from all over Australia and internationally.
When boys enter our boarding community they will journey through a myriad of experiences and emerge as competent, skilled and independent young men ready to take on the world.
We work closely with all Boarders to develop their leadership skills so that when our boys leave school they will have both the tools and desire to contribute to the wider community. Whether it be through boarding house committee involvement, acting as a buddy for new boys, via peer tutoring during homework, or as a boarding house prefect, a wide range of opportunities are offered for our boys to gain leadership skills.
Weekends are busy with a diverse range of supervised and structured activities such as beach trips, theme parks visits, and a variety of recreational activities. With our heated pool, weights room, gym, and spacious grounds, our boarders have one of the best backyards in the country.
