Seek to Achieve
Welcome! Ormiston College is not just a respected coeducational non-denominational Christian P-12 school with world-class facilities, outstanding curriculum program, exceptional teachers and superb surroundings.
It's far more than that. Being part of Ormiston College is about belonging to the College community, about being a part of a proud history of achievement and commitment to excellence, about friendship and belonging, and it's about taking pride in your school and yourself.
When students graduate from Ormiston College, they leave with more than an excellent private education; they leave with a sense of achievement, confidence, and self-respect.
We prepare your child for life in all its richness.
Ormiston College has an outstanding reputation for providing its students with quality private education. Ormiston College is an independent, non-denominational Christian school with a strong record of achievement not only academically but also through an extensive range of cultural and sporting pursuits.
Although the College’s world-class facilities and beautiful Brisbane Bayside setting make an immediate impression, it's the Ormiston College community and their commitment to positive outcomes for every student that sets our school apart.
Our College community supports, encourages, and acknowledges each person’s honest commitment to do his or her best, in a welcoming safe environment of mutual respect and dignity.
In a friendly, non-denominational Christian independent school environment we take a holistic approach to developing the spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, aesthetic, emotional, and physical skills of our students.
We actively promote the value of learning, as we believe that learning how to learn is as important as learning content and skills.
We understand and recognise the differences, the similarities, and the strengths which each girl and boy has. We guide them and teach them to explore, to strive for success, and to take on their dreams with confidence and compassion so they may go out into the community as leaders.
Because Some Skills Can’t Be Learned in the Classroom, while strong academic performance is important, at Ormiston College private school we believe an individual’s social skills and self-confidence are just as important for success. Not every student is successful in each aspect of school life, but our broad co-curricular program encourages students to recognise their talents and to enjoy genuine success and growth in self-confidence. Our team programs teach the importance of individual performance and commitment to the whole, while also helping students learn how to strive to achieve ‘personal bests’ and to both win and lose with grace. Of course having fun is also important. Students can choose from music, drama, debating, leadership programs and from an extensive list of individual performance and team sporting activities including: Music Tuition, Aerobics, Speech, Drama, Dance, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, Debating Club, Fitness Club, Chess, Public Speaking, Environmental Committee, Social Justice Committee, Sailing, Swimming Club, Biennial Musical, Tennis Tuition, Drama Club, Art Club, Robotics Club, Titration, Cultural Committee, the Academic Committee, and a program of cultural exchange, excursions, camps and overseas and national tours.
At Ormiston College, we provide permanent, on-campus pastoral support and guidance for students and their parents. Our pastoral care program focuses on students’ social, emotional, behavioural and spiritual well-being and builds their capacity to meet the challenges faced during and beyond their school years. Each form teacher is supported by a Student Support Services Team comprising two counsellors and the Year Level Co-ordinators.
