Opened in 1959, The Illawarra Grammar School (TIGS) is an independent co-educational Anglican day school located on the eastern coast of New South Wales in the City of Wollongong, approximately 70km south of Sydney.


TIGS is a dynamic educational centre that encourages each student to pursue the highest level of academic excellence, personal achievement and fulfilment of which they are capable. We aim to encourage independent thought and serious study, a high level of personal presentation and responsibility, the ability to lead and work with others, and develop individual talents and interests.


The Illawarra Grammar School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP) in our Junior School and the Middle Years Programme (MYP) in Year 7 to Year 10.  In Years 11 and 12 students are able to choose either the IB Diploma Programme or the NSW Higher School Certificate Course.
