Welcome to Gilles Street Primary School -
"The world in our city school"


Gilles Street Primary School provides quality primary education for students from 5 to 13 years of age in our unique CBD environment. There are 2 main components to our school, a Mainstream Primary school and the Intensive English Language Centre (IELC). The IELC offers intensive English language learning for newly arrived and Aboriginal English language learners for a period of up to 12 months.

Our curriculum is framed by the Australian Curriculum and through this we foster a rigorous and supportive learning programme. We employ inquiry pedagogy and structure learning so that students apply their learning in the real world in authentic contexts.

Our school attracts students from around the world and our international community represents over 40 different cultural backgrounds from every continent of the world. This richness of cultural experiences makes our school a vibrant and diverse learning community.
