Sports and Activities

Boys learn about teamwork, mental fitness, fair play, and how to deal with loss as well as success - our programs promote resilience, determination, and respect, which we recognise as being important for a boy's overall wellbeing.

Students are encouraged to become involved in some form of extra-curricular activity to enhance the curriculum and enrich the lives of our boys. Students have the opportunity to represent our school in a wide variety of sports and activities from rugby, swimming and cricket to debating, chess, and stage band.

Boys enjoy sporting, cultural, intellectual, and artistic activities, and while we do celebrate the thrill of the win, we also promote the value of participation.

Our staff work alongside sports specialists, elite coaches, psychologists, and doctors, to further develop skills, health and nutrition, motivation, sportsmanship, and commitment.

Ipswich Grammar School is a proud member of the Great Public School (GPS) system, which is regarded as one of the best private school sports and extra-curricular competitions in Australia and sees boys compete from Year 5 to 12. Ipswich Grammar has a proud history in the GPS competition winning over 60 premierships in various sports.

Boys in Prep through to Year 4 have the opportunity to participate in a range of after-school clinics that promote skill-building as well as IGS Club Basketball and the IGS Swimming Club.

Many of our students have competed successfully at national and international competitions and after graduating, have gone on to become professional sportsmen in their field.
