About International Grammar School

About International Grammar School

IGS is a vibrant school with a warm and inclusive community. The campus is located near the heart of the city, in Ultimo, just a short stroll from the University of Sydney, UTS and the creative hubs of Glebe and Chippendale.

IGS is an independent, secular, P-12 co-educational school offering a bilingual partial immersion Languages program for all students from Early Learning to the end of Primary School, and a strong High School Languages program up to HSC level. Languages include Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish. Today, the School has 1,250 students and long waiting lists, a far cry from the 44 students who attended the School on its first day in 1984.

IGS’s motto is Concordia per Diversitatem or Unity through Diversity, and the School is built on five strong core values which underpin the School’s activities, actions and behaviours – Diversity, Personal Achievement, Connectedness, Vibrancy and Authenticity. These goals are realised through the School’s unique Middle Years SAGE (Student Choice, Authentic Learning Experiences, Global Relevance, Exhibitions and Celebrations of Learning) program, robust STEM and STEAM initiatives, academic and creative achievements, and a re-imagined campus.

“At IGS, we offer a broad liberal education to empower our students and equip them to be world ready. We believe that the teacher’s role is to honour and nurture childhood while drawing out the innate gifts of the child as they move with growing confidence and independence towards adulthood.”
