Fees + Family Fee Cap

Please scroll below to find the schedule of  fees for 2023.

Townsville Grammar School offers  sibling discounts for families with two or three children enrolled, and a Family Fee Cap, for families with three or more 
full-fee paying students from Prep-Year 12 across our three Campuses.  

In 2023, this means the maximum a family will pay for Tuition is $31,000 per year ($7,750 per term). 

The Family Fee ceiling will take effect once all other deductions, such as sibling discounts, scholarships and bursaries, have already been deducted.  Once all such deductions for a family have been applied, the family will only be required to pay the lesser of discounted amount or the Family Fee amount – whichever is the smaller amount.

Our family discount schedule is below:

  • 1st child:   Full Tuition fees apply
  • 2nd child:  10% discount for Tuition fees
  • 3rd child:   25% discount for Tuition fees  (Family Fee Cap will apply)
  • 4th and subsequent children: 50% discount for Tuition fees (Family Fee Cap will apply)

If you have three or more children enrolled at Townsville Grammar School, or you are looking to enrol your family in any of our three campuses, talk to us about the Family Fee Cap.

Newsletters and Notices

The Principal's Newsletter is distributed twice each term, usually Week 3 and Week 8, to families across all campuses.

The Junior School Campuses each have a fortnightly newsletter for campus families - the Annandale Update and the North Shore News.

Important School Notices are posted to:

The Parents Network is also a great way to meet other parents across the Campuses and helps to build our  community spirit.
