A Grammar education is about providing a traditional, broad and liberal education. It is about delivering an exceptional education in a school environment that has a strong learning culture, lived values and high behaviour standards.

Top Academic Outcomes

Townsville Grammar School has an unrivalled history of leading academic outcomes for NAPLAN and Year 12. The school consistently ranks higher in NAPLAN, than other primary and secondary schools in the state and often nationally. In 2023, Townsville Grammar School was listed in the top 20 schools in Queensland based on average NAPLAN scores for the previous five years.

The school’s motto of ‘Personal Best’ aptly describes the Grammar approach; a place where students are strongly encouraged and supported to adopt the mindset of striving for their best, whatever that may be to them, both inside and beyond the classroom. This does not mean the expectation is that every student achieves an A, rather, it is about every student always trying to do their very best.

Our Approach

Grammar’s academic outcomes, at both our primary schools in Townsville and our high school, are the result of several factors:

  • High behavior standards which leads to maximised teaching time
  • A teaching and learning approach that centres around the individual learner
  • A well-developed culture of learning
  • Significant investment in professional development for teachers

A Grammar School offers a particular style of education that centres around delivering an exceptional program in a respectful and values-based environment. 

A Grammar education encapsulates the essence of a traditional, well-rounded learning experience. Rooted in a strong culture of learning, Townsville Grammar School stands as a beacon of academic excellence amongst other primary schools in Townsville. With a track record of consistently surpassing benchmarks in NAPLAN and Year 12 results, the school's commitment to fostering 'Personal Best' resonates deeply. Our dedication to individualised learning, high behavior standards and continuous teacher development contribute to the remarkable academic outcomes witnessed across our primary and secondary schools in Townsville.
