The Rockhampton Grammar School is an independent, co-educational, non-denominational, day and boarding school located in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia catering to students from Early Learning through to Year 12.

The School was founded in 1881, and was originally a co-educational school before becoming an all-boys school, until 1976, when it again became co-educational.
