An International Baccalaureate World School
St John's Anglican College is the premier coeducational Anglican school in south-west Brisbane, where personalised and future focused education leads to exceptional student achievement.
Our College community values, academic endeavour, respect, courtesy and optimism. As Kindergarten to Year 12 coeducational school, owned by the Anglican Diocese of Brisbane, Christian beliefs and values are central to our ethos. We welcome children of all families who accept this ethos, regardless of religious or ethnic origin.
We are school of approximately 1,000 students located in the suburb of Forest Lake in south-west Brisbane, just over 20 kilometres from the city centre. The primary school is located on Forest Lake Boulevard and caters for students from Kindy to Year 6. The middle and senior schools, located on College Avenue, cater for students from Years 7 to 12.
Future focused educational programs including tertiary links with partner universities in Physics and Chemistry and IT, and TAFE Colleges and for traineeships and apprenticeships; an extensive challenging outdoor education camping program builds confidence and leadership skills at all year levels; Mandarin Chinese from an early age to prepare students for a global future; and the “thinking curriculum” across all year levels based on the Dimensions of Learning framework.
St John’s is a place for the development of the mind, for innovation and creativity, for inspiration and wellbeing, and for nurturing of the spirit. Preparing the responsibilities of leadership in tomorrow’s local and global communities begins at Little Saints Kindergarten and is progressively undertaken by our caring, committed teachers through to Year 12.
Our teachers care about your child, listening and acting as fine role models. They are leaders in learning, focused on providing the best possible educational environment and ensuring that each child’s academic potential is nurtured. Teachers are innovative and collegial in their approach; and new ways of teaching and learning are explored and encouraged.
St John’s is focused on the future of each child, and welcomes parents’ participation in this educational journey. We facilitate community networks with tertiary providers and businesses, which support students in their transition from school to university and the workplace.
Your family will be welcomed into our dynamic community and I encourage you to explore this possibility with us.
