Boarding facilities

Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) is an independent non-selective Anglican school with an enrolment of approximately 1,400 students.

Spread over two campuses, the School is co-educational from Early Learning to Year 2 and girls only from Years 3 to 12. Boarding facilities are available for girls in Years 7 to 12.

CGGS offers the IB Primary Years Programme in Junior School and the IB Diploma Programme in the Senior School.

It is our belief that educating young people at this unique time in history is a privilege. Our purpose is to educate young people. Our intent is to develop young people that are able to articulate what it is to be well-educated, who understand the great responsibility of receiving a great education and who insist on living ethically and purposely.

Primary Years Programme (PYP)

Our Early Learning Centre and Junior School use the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) framework, in conjunction with the Australian Curriculum. Fostering international mindedness, our students explore local and global issues and opportunities in real-life contexts, using concept-driven, transdisciplinary inquiry as the leading vehicle for learning. At Canberra Girls Grammar School, we focus on the growth of each student's academic, social and emotional well-being, seeking to touch hearts as well as minds.
