About Us

Canberra Grammar School is an Independent Anglican School offering outstanding academic education, co-curricular opportunities and pastoral care to day and boarding students of all backgrounds and faiths within a community guided by Christian values.

Canberra Grammar School was founded for boarders and maintains a passionate belief that boarding provides the beating heart of its campus and community.

With around 120 boarders from regional Australia, from nations overseas and from Canberra’s parliamentary, diplomatic and defence communities, we have a vibrant and diverse student body, living in a friendly home away from home with all the resources of the School and Australia’s capital on the doorstep.

The School has undergone much positive change over the last few years, starting in 2012 with the relaunch of our boarding programme which created an outstanding 21st century boarding experience in which boarders can learn and flourish, our modern freshly refurbished accommodation provides comfortable, well-equipped individual rooms or double rooms for younger boarders, all with wi-fi internet access, study spaces and modern fully-renovated bathrooms.

In addition, after 40 years of co-education in the early years of the CGS Primary School, CGS went fully co-educational in 2016.  The final aspect of this was the inclusion of girls into the Boarding Community from 2019.

Our chief aims in boarding, as in every aspect of School life, are to respect and nurture all students as individuals, and to inspire, support and celebrate the efforts of all in realising their aspirations. We invite you to join us and welcome you to the community of CGS Boarding.

About the Role

The Head of Boys Boarding undertakes their duties with care, commitment and enthusiasm, seeking to set a positive and energetic example within both the boarding and broader School Community while complying with both the School’s Code of Conduct and policy and regulatory requirements.
