Canberra Girls Grammar School

Exceed even your own expectations.

Nestled in the picturesque foothills of Red Hill, Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) will soon celebrate a century of inspired learning, where young people have never stopped believing that anything is possible.

In honour of the revolutionary legacy set by our founders in developing fearless leaders, visionary thinkers and resilient learners, we consistently provide a world-class educational experience. We are committed to a holistic learning environment where students from the Early Learning Centre (ELC) to Year 12 are enriched and inspired by a diversity of opportunities, so that they may become their best selves.

In a community that champions Rhoades Scholars, Olympians, Supreme Court judges and aerospace engineers, CGGS empowers you to evolve into someone that exceeds even your own expectations.

Academic excellence.

CGGS brings together highly qualified teachers, impressive resources and facilities to create a purposeful learning environment where students feel safe to excel. Our students consistently rank highly in NAPLAN results, and our Year 12 graduates are often recognised for their outstanding BSSS and IBDP results.

A world-class curriculum.

Students develop the skills and attributes of contributing citizenship through the International Baccalaureate (IB). CGGS is authorised to offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Diploma Programme, and is a candidate for the Middle Years Programme (MYP). Our awarded IB education provides a curriculum framework that is broad, balanced, conceptual and connected, developing students into active, compassionate, lifelong learners.

Empathy balanced with ambition.

Our research-based Pastoral Care program fosters interdisciplinary skills so that students unfold into resilient, capable and courageous young people.
Forming the foundation of our Pastoral Care program is the House-based system. An integral part of student life at CGGS, it underpins group participation, inspires positive peer connection and creates a supportive framework where students feel valued.
Embedded within our curriculum are bespoke Signature Programs which are targeted, age-appropriate initiatives that assist students on their journey of personal growth, self-reflection and development.

A diverse co-curricular offering.

An extensive co-curricular program offers an enriching and inspiring experience for our students, where they are free to discover their purpose, explore their passions and hone their talents—to make the most of every day.
You will find various clubs and activities, leading music and performance arts programs and a multitude of sports and sport representative opportunities on offer at CGGS.
