About Us

This is Ipswich Grammar School. The oldest grammar school in Queensland and a Prep to Year 12 independent day and boarding school. Our distinctive culture, borne out of our 154-year heritage and traditions, sets us apart from other boys’ schools.


Our boys live and breathe our motto – Labore Et Honore – to work hard with honour. We challenge our staff and our boys to be exceptional performers every day and we invite you to be part of our community.


With over 150 years of experience in teaching boys, we understand what makes them tick.


Over this time we have developed and implemented innovative approaches to address the specific learning needs of boys with focused curriculum, specialist teachers and a unique approach to teaching called ‘Explicit Teaching’.


Every day for our boys is stimulating, unique and exciting. We tap into their sense of wonder and curiosity about the world around them. By tailoring programmes and activities to meet our students’ specific needs, we ensure every boy has the opportunity to reach his full academic, cultural and social potential.


Today’s world is ever-changing. We embrace innovation at Ipswich Grammar and the challenges it brings. We encourage our boys to explore exciting new possibilities, exposing them to different opportunities and experiences that will set them on the path to being confident, connected lifelong learners who also possess strong moral values.


We foster an encouraging environment that delivers more than exceptional academic results. Our GPS status sees boys from Years 5 to 12 take part in various activities between member schools. Whether it is sport, debating, the arts, literacy, or the sciences, our boys are given the opportunity to excel and network in any field. They are supported by staff from various backgrounds that bring world-class knowledge and experience to the classroom, playing field, and laboratories.
