A recent study, reported by Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ), showed an increase in the growth of Independent schooling in Queensland during the period 2019 to 2020. Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, enrolment numbers were strengthened through this timeframe with a 4.5% growth, equating to more than 130,000 students across the Independent sector. The search for quality education remained a high priority for parents despite the global disruptions and economic impact experienced by families.
