The Rockhampton Grammar School is a non-denominational co-educational school of 1350 students, catering for students from early childhood to Year 12. The School consists of a well-resourced city campus, an Early Learning Centre, a rowing and hospitality complex on the Fitzroy River and an 82-hectare beach property located four kilometres north of Emu Park on the Keppel Coast.

It is the largest regional co-educational boarding school in Australia with accommodation for up to 360 students.

RGS is structured into four separate schools (Early Learning Centre, Primary, Middle and Senior), each led by a Head of School. Student numbers are kept at a level that is large enough to support a diverse and rich curriculum but small enough to provide proper care and attention for every student.

The School’s motto Macte Virtute Et Litteris “Grow in Character and Scholarship” captures not only the expectation that every student will seek to do their very best in all that they undertake, but also the School’s commitment to learning and development of each student. Rockhampton Grammar’s teaching and learning programs are child centred and promote the deliberate development of higher order thinking processes, intelligent behaviours and actions, and a dedication to learning throughout life.

The teachers are committed to working with their students to help them achieve to the highest standard in all of their endeavours, and through partnerships with parents, strive to make each student’s dream a reality.
