Catholic Boys' College, Years 5–12

For 141 years Terrace has consistently proven itself to be one of Queensland’s leading schools, with a rich tradition of academic and co-curricula excellence.

The College’s vision is to provide a holistic Catholic Education.  As a Catholic College in the Edmund Rice Tradition, Terrace aspires to be faithful to the Charter’s four touchstones:  Liberating Education, Gospel Spirituality, Inclusive Community and Justice and Solidarity.

The Terrace gentleman is a young man of faith and learning who will make a difference to the community through his knowledge, humility and wisdom.

The college was established by the Christian Brothers in 1875. There are four campuses — the main campus at Gregory Terrace, Waterford Place (Year 10s), 10 hectares of sporting facilities at Tennyson and an Outdoor Education Centre at Lake Maroon.

Academic outcomes for students are a focus of a balanced education. Our Senior students of 2015 attained 30 OP1s and a median OP score of five. A third of the Senior cohort received an OP of one, two or three.

About Us

There are four campuses – the main campus at Gregory Terrace, Waterford Place (Year 10), Sporting facilities over 10ha at Tennyson and an Outdoor Education Centre at Lake Maroon. All facilities are state of the art providing excellent learning and co-curricular opportunities for the students.

Co-curricular activities are a key aspect of the Terrace education. The college is consistently among Queensland’s leading schools in areas as diverse as debating, cross-country, volleyball and rowing. It has a proud sporting tradition and offers a wide range of sporting pursuits, including rugby, football, gymnastics and cricket.
Boys from Years 5 to 7 are provided with musical instruments and lessons, while older students are encouraged to learn a musical instrument or continue with tuition. There are a large number of bands, ensembles, orchestras and choirs, who also have the opportunity to perform both in Australia and internationally.

A key facet of the college’s caring environment is its House system. On arriving at Terrace, students are placed in one of nine Houses under the direction of a House Dean. The Houses, which cater for students from Years 5 to12, are divided into tutor groups, each led by a staff tutor, with the Year 12 students cast as role models.
