Boarding is available from Year 5.

The School, located in Queensland’s fastest growing region, has long been one of Queensland’s highest-performing academic schools, and prides itself on preparing students for higher learning, global citizenship and life. The incoming Principal will have  a great opportunity, working with the Board of Trustees, to help shape the next version of the School’s strategic direction and influence the associated capital works program.
