Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) is an independent non-selective Anglican school with an enrolment of approximately 1,600 students.

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

Founded in 1926, we are the oldest independent school in the Australian Capital Territory and offer the only exclusively girls boarding house in Canberra.

We understand that 'knowing' has shifted in meaning from being able to remember and repeat information to being able to find and use information.

Students need to learn a core of knowledge that will provide the common understandings and language needed to be able to work with others in a variety of contexts and develop the research and analytical skills to find and use information when it is required. Our aim is to develop students who will become independent, reflective, lifelong learners.

We believe that in a 21st Century world, a young woman is emerging who will challenge the status quo, lead the charge and not settle for anything less than equality, inclusion and a diverse world of acceptance and peace — and she is going to be ready to lead this world.


Our century-old community will raise your daughter on its shoulders and equip her with the support and tools she needs to become that young woman. Located in the centre of power in Australia, the nation’s capital, Canberra Girls Grammar School awaits your daughter.
