Welcome from the Headmaster

Toowoomba Grammar School is one of Australia’s oldest and most well-established boys’ boarding schools, with a rich history dating back to 1875. For over 146 years we have provided a broad-based liberal education with a focus on teaching and learning, developing outstanding academic outcomes, nurturing individual talents, and providing broad opportunities for boys to explore both inside and outside of the classroom.

This approach helps our boys develop good character during their journey from childhood, through adolescence to when they depart the School as a young man. Success at school is not only measured by academic results but by the positive contribution that your boys make to society and those around them, which is a reflection of the values they have acquired throughout their time at Grammar.

During 2022, I encourage all boys to take advantage of the many opportunities that will be made available to them. Our comprehensive program of academic, sport, performing arts and service opportunities, alongside a large range of activities and clubs, provide myriad opportunities for boys to find new interests and nurture passions.

I also encourage our families to become actively involved in the TGS community. A strong relationship between the boys, their families and School staff supports every boy on his education journey and his entrance to life beyond school.

I look forward to working with our School community to uphold and enhance the excellent reputation enjoyed by the School.
