WELCOME TO CGS

Canberra Grammar School is an Independent co-educational Anglican School offering outstanding academic education, Active Education opportunities and pastoral care to day and boarding students of all backgrounds and faiths within a community guided by Christian values. The School’s main campus is set on 20 hectares at the foot of Red Hill, just south of Lake Burley Griffin, close to Parliament House and the lively social precincts of Manuka and Kingston. The Senior School caters for 950 students in Years 7 to 12, while the Primary School on this main site hosts 650 students from Pre-School to Year 6. The School’s Northside infants campus in Campbell, near the Australian War Memorial, serves a further 100 students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 2. The heart of the main campus is the School’s beautiful heritage-listed quadrangle, which includes classrooms set in the original buildings constructed in the 1920s as well as the School’s art gallery, assembly hall and dining hall. The School Chapel, which overlooks the School’s elegant main ovals, is an attractive architectural classic of the 1960s, and The Snow Centre for Education in the Asian Century is an award winning architectural representation of the School’s bold, international aspirations.
