We have three boys at MBBC. They all seem very happy. The curriculum seems challenging and diverse. One of my boys wrote his teacher a lovely letter within months of starting at MBBC and having transferred from somewhere else, thanking her profusely for “teaching me how to write…!” A school is successful when it aims for excellence in teaching and learning, when it provides for a diversity of interests, and when it keeps faith with its parents and students. So far, MBBC seems to tick all the boxes. Chris July, 2013

Welcome to Moreton Bay Boys’ College. As you navigate our profile, you will experience the energy and vibrancy of our college. You will begin to get a sense of the how the college feels as a community for your son’s learning and growth. It is important for us as a college that your son grows into a strong and compassionate young man prepared for the world and for his future.

At MBBC our college students are encouraged to extend themselves intellectually and to strive to achieve-whether this is in the classroom, the playing field or the stage. For your son to grow into a man capable of dealing with life’s challenges he needs a school experience that allows him to become as our motto suggests, a life adventurers; and life achiever!

As a father of two boys attending Moreton Bay Boys’ College it is important for me as my sons become men they ask challenging questions, think critically, develop research skills proven to help them in higher education and are encouraged to be active in their communities to take their learning beyond academic study. The college is the right place for them to be!

Moreton Bay Boys’ College has a strong philosophy of educating the whole person-body, mind, heart and spirit. The focus on academic excellence is underpinned by a rich and caring pastoral program. This is coupled with rich co-curricular program to engage your son across visual and performing arts, cultural activities and a wide range of sports.

Boys need a learning environment that gives both the boundaries and the freedom to explore and experiment, to take risks, to debate and challenge! Moreton Bay Boys’ College provides this and our outstanding teaching staff strive to ensure that your son will achieve his personal best, embrace opportunities to develop as a leader, to volunteer, to develop courage to overcome and to act with integrity. As a single sex college your son is free to be himself and to build a strong and resilient self-esteem. Like our sister school, Moreton Bay College, Moreton Bay Boys’ College has a strong tradition in single sex education. We are also a young and dynamic school embracing innovation and change. This creates an exciting learning environment for your son to thrive.

Keep on shining
