Principal's Welcome

For the past 130 years, Townsville Grammar School has been at the forefront of education in North Queensland.

Townsville Grammar School offers families living locally, nationally and internationally the opportunity to access the advantages of a Grammar School education where innovation, creativity, tradition and history are the hallmarks.  

Townsville Grammar School provides a safe and nurturing environment where young people are offered a broad and balanced education enabling them to grow and develop as citizens of their wider community. We explicitly teach and promote the lifelong values of mutual respect, tolerance of difference and service learning whilst fostering your child’s natural curiosity and sense of joy and adventure in their endeavours. Throughout its significant history, Townsville Grammar School has remained committed to providing to its students a broad liberal education which concentrates on academic scholarship, the pursuit of excellence in all fields of endeavour, and a commitment to community service and social responsibility.

Townsville Grammar School is a school where young people, irrespective of their innate abilities, can aspire to achieve their personal best. The School’s motto Bonus Intra Melior Exi, which is translated as “Enter good, exit better”, provides a guiding philosophy in our approach to the development of all young Grammarians who pass through the School. The School enjoys a remarkable culture of respect and achievement and this is reflected in its well-deserved, pre-eminent status as an educational institution in North Queensland.

I trust that your visit to our website will be informative and I encourage you to find out more about a school that is committed to providing an enriching and fulfilling experience for each of its students.

If you are a prospective member of our School community, you are warmly invited to contact us for further information. If you are a Past Grammarian and would like to be kept informed of news about the School, we would be delighted to hear from you.
