Toowoomba Grammar School offers an all-boys' complete education from Prep to Year 12

Our educators have consciously chosen to work in an all-boys’ school and therefore appreciate that boys learn differently. Our inspiring and broad curriculum is designed to spark our students’ interest so they develop a love of learning from an early age which will follow them through their school years. This helps to expand and diversify pathway options and opportunities for our boys and improves student outcomes. Teachers learn about each individual student’s passion and needs, ensuring that each boy performs to the very best of his ability in a nurturing and respectful environment.

The consistent results of our Year 12 graduates are testament to the success of the broad education offered at Toowoomba Grammar School. Over 95% of our 2021 cohort received their first preference university offer with students studying in diverse fields such as Biomedical Sciences, Advanced Finance, Engineering, Education, Psychology and Law. Thirty percent of TGS students are on a vocational pathway, working in fields ranging from Business, Agriculture, Health and Fitness and trades such as construction and electrotechnology. In 2021, 45% of our students received one or more Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications, with 47 students receiving either a Certificate IV or a Diploma. Graduates have also been accepted into various Conservatorium of Music programs, NIDA and accepted into sporting programs in universities and colleges overseas.

But Toowoomba Grammar School is more than just an education. We equip boys with the skills to be of good character so they can flourish as an individual, contribute to society and lead a meaningful life. We adopt an evidence-informed approach to pastoral care from Prep to Year 12 and offer service opportunities and engagement within the community to ensure our boys are independent, develop good character for life, respond well to challenges and are well-balanced.

“Effort is celebrated at TGS, as we strongly believe this is something that every student has the opportunity of demonstrating. It is a sign of respect and commitment that build strong foundations for the boys to stride from when they graduate.”
— Mr Michael Hall, Head of House - Boyce Boarding

The Junior School Advantage

Starting your son’s education in the Toowoomba Grammar Junior School helps him understand and appreciate our School’s values and expectations from a young age. They participate in ‘buddy’ programs with our senior students which provides good role models and enhances the sense of belonging to the TGS community. Our Junior School students are familiar with the sport and co-curricular programs here and are comfortable with the campus. They are also academically prepared, having already commenced lessons in French, Japanese, Art and Woodwork from Prep, all of which they will undertake in the Senior School, making for an easy transition to Senior School. This, along with enjoying established friendship groups, provides a sense of familiarity, helps alleviate the nerves often associated with starting high school and enables a seamless transition to the Senior School.

Everything in the one location

Toowoomba Grammar School also has the advantage of offering a diverse range of co-curricular activities on-site, alleviating some stress for parents in today’s busy world. Sport training, performing arts tutorials and cadets are provided before and after school on-campus with fully qualified coaches, tutors and staff. Buses are organised for teams or performers travelling away for activities.
