Tamborine Mountain College is a Pre-Prep to Yr 12 campus.

There are only 2 classes/year level so classes are capped and limited. It is strongly advised that if you are planning to enrol your child in TMC for the next year, that you do this as early as possible. Most of our enrolments are made several years in advance.

Enrolment in any year level can occur at any time of the year, from any locality, providing vacancies exist.

We do not restrict enrolment to a catchment area and those that enrol from other catchment areas and travel on the bus to TMC can apply for a College Travel Concession.

To enrol you need to complete the Online Enrolment Form, providing the necessary documents and application fee. An interview with the Principal or delegate, will be arranged through our office and if enrolment is successful and confirmed, then the deposit is immediately payable to secure your child’s place.

If you intend to apply for a Scholarship in the month of June in the preceding year of enrolment for Yr 7 or Yr 11, it is advisable that you go through the enrolment process first to avoid disappointment if classes become full by the time scholarships are assessed. Scholarships are assessed and awarded by Term 3.

We look forward to welcoming you to our College family.

Tamborine Mountain College is an independent, non-denominational, co-educational day school serving the greater Tamborine Mountain community since 1995 as a secondary campus, becoming a complete P-12 campus in 2015, and expanding even further with the opening of our Early Learning Centre's Pre-Prep programme in January 2019. The College Principal, Mrs June Melbourne, has been with the College since 1998.

At Tamborine Mountain College it is our belief that every child has the right to experience the joy and wonder of learning. Learning is about experiencing the wonders of the world. Like never before, the journey of education is one that inspires, engages and enhances children’s knowledge of the world around them. At Tamborine Mountain College it is our goal to instill within our students a love of learning that will stay with them for life.

Tamborine Mountain College’s size enables us to offer a unique and individualised program for students to tailor learning programs to meet individual needs. Our small overall student population allows for individual assessment and attention, as part of our Behaviour Management Policy, to strive for excellent students as well as excellent citizens in society.

Scholarships now closed for 2021.


Please review our website and social media mid 2021 for the 2022 application details.

Principal's Image

Tamborine Mountain College is an independent, co-educational campus for Pre-Prep to Yr 12.  There are only two classes per year level, which means that student numbers are capped, thereby limiting vacancies available. Teachers and staff have a close bond with our students. We offer student–centred learning in a caring, safe, family-like environment. We value the individual and recognise and celebrate personal success and achievement.

At the College we offer quality, affordable education. We have set standards in areas of behaviour and uniform. Our students are polite, co-operative and respectful. College life provides many opportunities for students in extracurricular activities, including debating, public speaking, titration, competitive sport, school productions, snow trips, overseas trips and equestrian competitions.

The College is truly independent with no actual religious affiliation or instruction, however moral and social expectations are reinforced in our school community through our pastoral care. We value close communication with our parents and have a supportive and active Parents & Friends Association.

There are three sport houses which are named after our founding Board members – Kyle (blue), Walton (red) and Nicholls (gold). The “Melbourne Cup” named after the Principal is the House Trophy that is competed for in Swimming, Cross-Country and Athletics.

Tamborine Mountain College has a spirit that is strengthened by the school song “Arrows of Tomorrow”, sung proudly every week by the students on Assembly. “Victory & Valour” is the College motto and our two large bronze lions, thus named, stand as sentries at the administration entrance to symbolise these noble pursuits. The names “Vic” and “Val” are assigned to the two classes per year level. 

We believe the key to success is to enjoy what you are learning and to have the confidence to follow your dreams and desires. Tamborine Mountain College provides the positive learning environment to achieve this.

I invite you to watch the annual TMC DVD to gain an insight into our College life.
