Senior Campus

Ideally located, students and staff find serenity amongst the beautiful trees and extensive grounds. The historic buildings, including those utilised for the Boarding House, administrative hub and much-loved School Chapel – often regarded as the heart of the School, provide ample learning and living spaces. Our students enjoy light, spacious classrooms boasting the latest technology and equipment. The architecturally designed Café 1846 is where students can enjoy breaks throughout the school day and it is where you will find a dedicated function space and archival display celebrating the School’s rich history and alumni achievements.


Each student will be inspired to read and research within our magnificent Library which boasts a traditional library, dedicated study zones, information technology delivery centre, and a Careers Centre.

You will be in awe of our indoor heated swimming pool, dance and drama studio, Poimena Art Gallery and creative hub, and our technology centre. At our Senior Campus we pride ourselves on delivering an exceptional education within a beautiful Tasmanian setting.

Boarding Houses

Our boarders become part of a wonderful community of students and staff who make them feel welcome, secure and included.

Mountain Bike Track

Our Senior campus has a 2 km intermediate mountain bike track designed by students passionate about mountain biking and built by a local trail expert with volunteer assistance from our community.

Mountain biking is offered as a co-curricular sport at Launceston Grammar and those students participating in the Term 1 and 4 sport utilise the track for their weekly training sessions.

Participants in the School’s Community Programmes regularly utilise the track where they develop techniques and skills for basic bike handling using approved games and coaching in a safe environment.

All School mountain bike sessions are coordinated by Mountain Bike Australia accredited skills instructors.

Poimena Gallery

At Launceston Grammar we believe that authentic engagement and experience within the visual arts provides context and clarity for students to be creative and forward thinking. Offering the perfect environment for this creativity to mature in its many forms is the Poimena Gallery located at our Senior Campus.

A tremendous asset for students, the gallery ensures a considered interaction with art practitioners, providing opportunities for exhibitions that challenge and extend the range of arts experiences available to students and the wider community. The gallery space provides an excellent opportunity for students to appreciate how ideas become 2D or 3D within a gallery.

Equestrian

The Faulkner Park Equestrian Centre came to fruition thanks to the enthusiasm and foresight of alumnus Mark Youngman. Launceston Grammar’s specialised Equestrian programme runs from the park and features eight School specific equestrian competitions per year. Four of the competitions are National event qualifiers, aimed at higher level riders and include Dressage, Show Jumping, Eventing/ Combined Training, and Show Horse. Regional School events are suitable for all rider levels and form the additional four competitions. The School also offers two half day funded training sessions with Coach Amanda Cameron, who is an Equestrian Australia Level 2 qualified coach and coach educator. She has competed to a high level in all disciplines including National and International level and has been a full time Equestrian Coach for the last 15 years.

Faulkner Park is home to the Northern Polocrosse Club.

Swimming Pool

Our six lane, 25m indoor heated pool is well utilised as part of our Health and Physical Education programme, Learn to Swim programme, Grade 7 Swim Week, Junior and Senior Campus swim trials, and sport team fitness training and recovery.

This excellent facility is well utilised by Senior Campus students for a range of activities including soccer and cricket as well as the School’s Equestrian programme. Three soccer fields and a synthetic turf cricket wicket are part of the grounds, which are also hired to external groups for soccer and cricket matches and competitions.

Gymnasium

The Launceston Grammar gymnasium is one of Tasmania’s premier gymnasiums featuring a spring loaded timber floor. Senior Campus students enjoy a raft of indoor activities and competitions across basketball, netball, volleyball and badminton.

Fitness Centre

The Fitness and High Performance Centre is equipped with a comprehensive range of state-of-the-art weights and functional fitness equipment to deliver high quality strength and conditioning programmes for our athletes, sport teams and Health and Physical Education classes.

Library

The Library is where connections are made. It is a much-loved vibrant space where everyone who walks in is welcomed. It is where learning is nurtured by staff who provide invaluable support. Our students have access to specialist teachers for after school tutoring who guide them toward successful learning outcomes. The Library is where a holistic approach to education is delivered.

Dedicated Grade 11 and 12 study spaces as well as shared learning spaces provide additional support to students. For those who just need a quiet space in which to study there are many dedicated reading zones, and if your child is passionate about chess, a much-loved Chess Club.

Conveniently located within the Library is the Careers Officer, providing advice and guidance.

Rowing Shed

The School’s boat shed was built on the banks of the Tamar in 1927 after the school was relocated to Mowbray. In 1980 the Northern Outlet Road was constructed which saw the old Launceston Grammar boat shed re-located to its present site. At the same time, school rowing, including the Head of the River programme, was extended to all size boats and sculls and with boys and girls competing.

Our Rowing programme remains committed to providing students with the opportunity to gain a sense of responsibility towards others, self-improvement, time management, enjoyment, fitness and teamwork. The programme is supported by parents, alumni and volunteers.
