Brisbane Grammar School is a non-selective independent day and boarding school for boys located on a wonderfully landscaped and heritage listed site on the edge of Brisbane’s CBD. It now caters for about 1700 boys in Years 5 to 12.
The School has two sections on its Gregory Terrace campus – Years 5 to 8 (the Middle School) and Years 9 to 12. These operate in an integrated manner and provide a seamless transition from Year 8 into Year 9, while at the same time providing an educational environment which is tailored to the needs of the particular age groups housed in each section of the School.
The predominant aim of the School is to provide its students with a set of experiences that will promote the development of attitudes, skills and a knowledge base which will serve as a foundation for students’ critical intelligence, imaginative and creative powers, effective communication and the capacity and enthusiasm for independent lifelong learning.
Academic learning is Brisbane Grammar’s highest priority and its facilities reflect this. The Lilley Centre, opened in 2010, was driven by a vision to create powerful new 21st century learning experiences for our students. The Lilley Centre accommodates:
- The Senior Library
- The Forum
- Flexible Learning Classrooms
- Breakout Learning Spaces
- Professional Development Library for Staff
- Experimental Teaching Laboratories Allowing for The Ongoing Review and Innovation of Our Teaching and Learning Practices
The Lilley Centre is complemented by ample general classroom spaces throughout the School.
Other specialist learning facilities include well-equipped science and language laboratories.
