Located in the eastern suburb of Canterbury, just 9km from Melbourne’s CBD, Camberwell Girls Grammar School (CGGS) is an independent school that has been educating young women for over 100 years.
At CGGS girls not only enjoy equal opportunity, they enjoy every opportunity. They participate fully in an environment where there are no boundaries. As a result, they whole-heartedly explore their passions and interests and together, they create an environment of strong academic achievement.
In 2018, the school made a commitment to build our own architecture to underpin all teaching and learning at the school. At CGGS we believe that educating young people for their future means more than imparting discipline-specific knowledge and skills. We want each learning experience to also impart our students with the transferable skills they will need in their lives, no matter what career path they choose. Our BY DESIGN learning framework is a way of viewing the world, anticipating change and leveraging opportunities. It recognises the need to connect learning to real-world experiences and assists students to understand the ‘why’ of what they are learning as well as the ‘how’.
We are fully committed to supporting young women in becoming equal partners in shaping lives, shaping society and shaping the future. We recognise the vital importance of preparing girls for life and work in a rapidly changing world. We offer learning in areas that have been traditionally male-dominated spheres and our future-focused programs start the moment girls arrive so they can develop entrepreneurial skills and become creative inventors.
Every girl is welcome and every girl belongs. Our own wellbeing program enables our girls to be comfortable with who they are and not what they are expected to be. Each girl matures into the best version of themselves in all areas of life, with an awareness of the needs of others as much as themselves.
CGGS offers opportunities for every girl to create her tomorrow. For more than 100 years our girls have left the school with global perspectives, a determination to pursue their dreams and a passion to work towards positive changes in society.
Staff at Camberwell Girls Grammar School are dedicated professionals, passionate about girls' education and committed to ensuring our students can confidently contribute to their tomorrow.
