Girls’ education is our specialty.

With more than 125 years of history, Rockhampton Girls Grammar School is a learning community for girls founded on a commitment to excellence.

Each member of our School family contributes to sustaining an environment in which individuals actively engage in their learning; where School values are embraced; where mutual and self-respect is practised; where community and global citizenship is fostered and where excellence in every endeavour is sought and celebrated.

The School’s Vision is very simple: Women can achieve anything

This is underpinned by our Mission: To produce graduates who are clever, confident and connected.

Our girls need to be clever. This is achieved through best practice teaching methodology with a broad curriculum that allows them to explore all their options and keep doorways to the future wide open. The school’s work is centred on academic excellence. Outstanding technology and resources support their learning. The progress of every girl is individually tracked – and much more than twice a year. Helping our girls achieve their first choice of university course or career is a priority.

Our girls need to be confident. We ensure there are opportunities which allow the girls to develop their leadership, public speaking skills, sporting prowess, competitiveness and teamwork. For many of those in western Queensland, it is these opportunities they long for. Participation in sport and cultural pursuits offer our girls the chance to learn life-long interests and skills.

Our girls need to be connected. There is a strong sense of family and community at Girls Grammar. Our girls become part of this family and will have access to an impressive network of past graduates around the region, the state, the nation and the globe.

Girls Grammar is a boarding school – not a school with a boarding program. One third of our students are boarders – boarding is integral to what we do. With outstanding facilities our girls experience a boarding school life second to none.

The Board of Rockhampton Girls Grammar School is undertaking one its most important functions: the appointment of a Principal to lead this school community with more than 125 years history of educating strong women.

It is a very exciting time at Rockhampton Girls Grammar School. The new Principal will work with a supportive Board that is proud of current achievements but ambitious for the school to grow.

We are seeking a dynamic and innovative leader to continue the development of Rockhampton Girls Grammar as the school of choice for girls in Central and Western Queensland.
