A community of global citizens

Our Purpose

World Ready 

Our purpose is to equip our students to be world ready.

Founded on principles of bilingual learning and unity through diversity, International Grammar School is dedicated to shaping future generations of globally-conscious citizens.

We value diversity, authenticity, connectedness, personal achievement, and vibrancy. Empowering students with a broader definition of education that celebrates academic achievement through deeper learning and champions personal growth. We create supportive and inclusive environments that foster the self-belief, kindness, and independence needed for every student to fulfil their true potential.

Our wide-ranging curriculum, enriched by languages and music, includes exciting developments in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) learning, combining immersive educational programs, like SAGE, and real-world opportunities for students to learn beyond the classroom. 

As one vibrant community, united by diversity, we prepare our students to embrace the world with open eyes and open minds.
