About Ipswich Grammar School

We are ideally located in Ipswich, just 25 minutes from Brisbane’s western suburbs and as one of Queensland’s first schools, our proud heritage is only matched by our progressive outlook, welcoming boys from near and far.

Ipswich Grammar School is steeped in history. The original school building, known as the Great Hall, has been lovingly restored and still stands today as a monument to over 150 years of educating boys. This fine gothic structure is nestled amid a complex of modern facilities including an Auditorium, Information and Technology Centre, Library and Resource Centre, Industrial Technology and Design workshops, gymnasium and multi-purpose Sports Dome.

The Ipswich Grammar Sporting Complex is just a five minute drive away. The Risson Centre onsite caters for sporting functions and is recognised as a leading conference and seminar venue. The facility hosts GPS Cricket, Rugby, Football, Cross Country and other outdoor activities and has eight international standard tennis courts and a clubhouse.


The two boarding towers overlook extensive sporting fields on Grammar School Hill. Facilities include air-conditioned, ensuited rooms designed for comfort, study and relaxation.

Each student has his own desk and study area and his privacy is respected. Each boarding tower is equipped with its own mini-kitchen, TV room, pool table and reading room. Foxtel is also available in the TV room.

The towers can host up to 65 people each. Please note, accommodation is only available during the December/January school holidays.

Meals can also be provided.
