From thePrincipal


At Canberra Girls Grammar School our focus is on students as individuals. Each student is different. Each has a unique mixture of skills and talents.

We understand that the secondary years are extremely important years in a student's education. We believe that positive, focused encouragement is the best way to enable their progress, stretching the most able and giving support to those who need it.

The School's teachers are exceptional educators who encourage integrity, decency, responsibility, self-respect and honesty in their students from the very start of their education. CGGS teaches the whole child, nurturing each individual to be the best they can be.

Canberra Girls Grammar School excels at educare, a Latin word which means to ‘draw out of’. Our students have so much potential in so many areas. 

We are here to engage, support and challenge that potential, to draw out their best, and to instil a sense of pride in their achievements.

Reading about our School cannot give you the full flavour of our community, so we invite you to visit the School and see for yourself.  School tours are scheduled on a typical school day so you can see our school in action.

I look forward to meeting you.
