Canberra Grammar School is an independent primary and secondary school that enrols both boys and girls up until year three, and then only boys throughout later primary and secondary school years, offering an education informed by the Anglican faith and Christian teachings. As part of their endeavour to be the best school in their region and beyond, they focus on the holistic development of their students, looking to mould future leaders who are intelligent, international and innovative, as well as compassionate, confident and creative.

In developing their students as future leaders, the Canberra Grammar School aims to expose their students to international and future-focused ideas. In Australia and internationally, there are increasing numbers of women in leadership and the workplace, making it more important for students to have strong female leaders and teachers as role models to reflect the community and prepare them for the workplace.

How might Canberra Grammar School achieve these goals? Read the case study here.

“This partnership helped us to identify our strengths, recongnise some opportunities and develop new gender specific goals to help us reach our targer of being an employer of choice.” – Michael Simon, Human Resource Manager, Canberra Grammar School
