Education is more than the acquisition of skills and knowledge, or academia confined to the compulsory years; education is a life-long journey of experiences that build character, mould and create a unique person. This journey begins at birth and ends in the fulfillment of life.
St Paul’s School plays an important role in that life-long journey of learning. The school aims to empower individuals as they seek to reach their God-given potential. Education at St Paul’s School is not just about academia, it is about educating the whole child, emotionally, socially, physically, spiritually and academically.
Founded in 1960, St Paul’s School is located on one 50 hectare campus on the northern outskirts of Brisbane, Queensland.
For nearly 50 years, our broad curriculum and extensive selection of extra-curricular activities have provided opportunities for students of all ages and interests to be challenged, to grow and to achieve success across a myriad of disciplines.
On any given day, you will find students at St Paul’s School doing what they do best….throwing themselves enthusiastically into a huge range of academic, sporting and cultural activities.
At St Paul’s School, we are exceptionally (and justifiably) proud of our academic track record and our well established reputation for curriculum innovation. Setting and achieving high academic standards right through from our youngest pre-Prep students to our graduating Year 12’s are cornerstones in our School’s philosophy.
