Principal's Message
It’s hard to convey the excitement of an education at CGGS. From the very moment you step inside our gates, you’ll understand what I mean. There’s truly something special about our school. I am struck daily by its powerful energy and I’m certain, that you too, will feel it. At CGGS, education is designed for every girl because quite simply, we are every girl. CGGS students wholeheartedly explore their passions and interests and together, they create a unique and vibrant environment. I look forward to welcoming you to CGGS and showing you what I believe to be, Melbourne’s best kept secret. - Debbie Dunwoody, Principal

Camberwell Girls Grammar School is committed to fostering the education of young women. At CGGS, girls enjoy not only equal opportunity — they enjoy every opportunity. They fully participate in an environment where there are no boundaries. As a result, they whole-heartedly explore their passions and interests and together, create an environment of strong academic achievement.

The CGGS learning architecture, BY DESIGN underpins all we do. We aspire for our girls to mature into the best version of themselves in all areas of life, with an awareness of the needs of others as much as their own. Wellbeing is fundamental to positive academic and social growth. Our own model ensures that a respectful, safe, connected, nurturing and encouraging environment exists, so students can flourish in both academic and personal endeavours.

We know firsthand the benefits of a balanced lifestyle and opportunities to participate in activities outside the classroom are endless. With over 70 offerings, from sport to music and everything in between – there is something for every girl.

CGGS empowers our girls to lead with humility and inspires them to make a difference by contributing to build a more just and sustainable world. Our Service Learning program and dedicated Service classes encourage our girls to take action.

We are proud of our diverse, multicultural and highly inclusive community. From Early Learning to Year 12, everybody is welcome and everybody belongs.
