WHY GIRLS GRAMMAR
Girls Grammar is more than a school, it's a community. Determining your daughter's education pathway is one of the most important decisions you can make for her. We also believe it should be all about her. At Girls Grammar we know girls learn differently. We know they learn better without distractions. We know they will participate with confidence in an all-girls setting. We know they will be clever, confident and connected. We know this because the research reinforces what we have learned in our 127 years of educating girls.
Girls’ schools encourage girls to use their voice, to advocate and to debate (Tully & Jacobs, 2010). A survey in the United States found that nearly 87% of girls’ school students feel their opinions are respected compared to 58% of girls at co-ed schools (www.ncgs.org/advocacy/why-girls-schools/). Girls Grammar supports girls to be informed and to express their views. Our curriculum and cocurricular programs provide opportunities for girls to debate historical and contemporary social and ethical issues, to listen to others’ opinions and to form considered, reasoned arguments.
Reinforcing US research on the advantage of girls’ schools (Laury, Lee and Schnier 2019), Girls Grammar girls are confident and competitive. This is because Girls Grammar facilitates environments where girls can problem-solve, collaborate, develop solutions, which aids in improving self-efficacy. We prioritise developing students’ thinking skills and ensure our curriculum fosters a questioning, challenging, justifying, critical thinking mindset.
We know your daughter will love being a Girls Grammar Girl.
"When your daughter becomes a Girls Grammar Girl, she becomes part of our family."
When you ask a Girls Grammar Girl what is so special about her school, she will talk to you about sisterhood.
During their time at Girls Grammar, our girls and young women gain many surrogate sisters. This starts with their 'big sister' who contacts them before their first day at our school and supports them through the first weeks with their new family and throughout their schooling.
Girls are welcomed into a community that provides them with a sense of belonging, support and security.
"I would definitely encourage any girl to come here because the environment is friendly, the people are nice and they will have more opportunities to learn through different subjects and sports."
