A Grammar Education - Schools of Excellence

2nd September 2020

Developing young people of character and service

Townsville Grammar School has a long-standing reputation as the leading academic school in North Queensland, however the Grammar experience is far wider and deeper, with academic learning as the foundation.

A Grammar education provides a broad, liberal education, one which strives to develop young people of character who have a service mindset.  “This is about being aware of the community, the environment and world beyond our own,” explains Principal Timothy Kelly.

“We equip students with the academic foundations, the critical thinking skills and the mindset to contribute compassionately and passionately to their world beyond school.”

Personal best

As one of eight Grammar schools in Queensland, Townsville Grammar School is widely renowned for delivering an exceptional education, where students are encouraged and supported to strive for personal best, whatever that may represent to the individual.

“A Grammar education is ultimately about personal best,” said Mr Kelly. “We set the standards high for respectful behaviours, and this translates into maximised learning in the classroom and into a school culture where manners, inclusivity, a sense of welcome and joy are evident.  Our students are encouraged and supported every day to strive for their best, and we believe this is an important attitude for life beyond school - for relationships, families, workplaces and communities.

“This is what a Grammar education strives to achieve. Young people with character, with a service mindset, with manners and respect for self and others.”
