My Grammar


Ipswich Junior Grammar School is south east Queensland’s only co-educational Grammar primary school.

We offer boys and girls, siblings and friends the opportunity to begin their school experience together, in our three purpose-built School Centres – the Early Education Centre (Kindergarten and Pre-Prep), Foundation Centre (Prep and Year 1) and Mavis Parkinson Centre (Years 2 to 6). Boys and girls can come to us in Kindy, from the age of three, and continue their journey through our Junior School to Year 6. At the end of Year 6, our girls can move to Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School, our girls-only secondary school, located within the same grounds. Many of our boys choose to continue their education at our brother school, Ipswich Grammar School, from Year 7. At Junior Grammar every child is known, inspired and challenged. We help our boys and girls discover their talents, and encourage them to be the best they can be. Smaller classes and individual learning programs give our students more attention in every lesson, every day. Our dedicated teachers deliver an innovative and challenging curriculum and the care they invest in each student’s academic and personal development sets us apart from other schools. We are a happy, inclusive school with a strong sense of family and community. Join us.

2023 Principal's Welcome

On behalf of our School community, welcome to the Ipswich Junior Grammar website. I am proud to be Principal and encourage you to visit us to discover the difference we can make in shaping your child’s brightest future.


For over two decades, Ipswich Junior Grammar School has offered boys and girls a first-class, non-denominational, independent primary education. We are proud to share our rich heritage with Ipswich Girls Grammar, one of Queensland's original Grammar Schools.


Junior Grammar’s five core values foster excellence, integrity, resilience and responsibility, and we seek to promote and teach our students these values in everything we do.


Extensive educational research has shown that a co-educational experience in the early years of learning gives our children a greater chance to thrive, which is why we offer positive, personalised education programs for boys and girls from Kindy to Year 6.

Student Wellbeing

At Junior Grammar we know a caring and stimulating environment enhances a student’s efforts to do their best, whatever their age, stage or ability.

Academic Achievement

Our consistently high record of academic achievement reflects the high quality of our teachers, the attention we give to the individual learning needs of our students and the commitment to excellence we have upheld for more than two decades.

Girls-Only Boarding

Ipswich Junior Grammar School offers girls-only boarding from Year 5 onwards.

Natural Playspaces

Our classrooms look out over our open and natural playspaces. Every centre has their own dedicated placespace where our boys and girls create, imagine, discover, wander, run, jump and interact with nature and each other.

Family Friendly

At Ipswich Junior Grammar School we understand the needs of busy, working families and offer a range of family-friendly benefits to make life easier.


As an independent, non-denominational Grammar school, we welcome students from all kinds of different cultural backgrounds to help enrich your child's learning environment.
