Education > How Boys Learn
Ipswich Grammar School has been a specialist in boys' education since 1863. Ipswich Grammar students become responsible, effective, creative, enterprising, happy and healthy members of society.
The school's core values of Community, Excellence, Integrity and Leadership underpin the essence of our teaching and learning programs.
Students learn in a safe, caring and nurturing environment that values scholarship, academic rigour and the pursuit of excellence. Our zero tolerance of bullying lets boy grow and develop free of negative influences.
Staff strive for excellence in all activities and relationships. They endeavour to understand and attend to students' needs and possess a real passion for their craft.
Our Life Skills program, which is tailored for boys, covers practical topics and skills necessary for a boy's well-rounded education.
We offer a balanced education that combines academic learning with personal learning and self discovery through a wide ranging extra-curricular program that embraces sport and the performing arts.
Successful strategies of ‘chunking’ - focussed learning episodes - challenging and interesting tasks, use of peer and reciprocal teaching and learning partnerships all combine for positive outcomes for boys.
