Brisbane Independent School is a co-educational independent alternative school for Prep to year 7 running since 1968.
Over the last 40 years we have been famous for providing a source for an education that is embedded in passionate learning and dynamic social change. Although many parts of our teaching and learning have changed the two tenets that have remained the same are:
Brisbane Independent School is set in idyllic semi-rural surrounds and operates within a co-operative family environment. Our mission is to nurture, develop and trust our pupils’ innate love of learning and positive values, and to produce graduates who are respectful, confident, competent and self-motivated, with the skills necessary for life-long learning in all facets of their lives.
To this end, we provide a flexible and democratic educational environment for the development of the whole child, including social, emotional, physical and cognitive development, within a school community that supports our values.
Brisbane Catholic Education strives for educational excellence and Catholic values at affordable fees in 40 pre-schools, 102 parish primary schools and 26 secondary colleges in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and surrounding areas.
Brisbane Catholic Education operates as the executive arm of the Catholic Education Council in the implementation of policies. Brisbane Catholic Education operates under the authority of the Executive Director of Brisbane Catholic Education to whom the Archbishop of Brisbane delegates authority for the administration and management of Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Brisbane.
The role of staff of the Brisbane Catholic Education Centre is to serve and support Catholic parishes and schools in their provision of educational services to the people of the Archdiocese. Students develop best as learners and as individuals when their needs as young people are recognised and provided for. They require this care in the normal course of their development and especially at times of personal, school, family and community crisis. Such student support is provided by the structures and processes of each school and especially by all of the adults in that school community. It is a particular focus of the work of such role holders as teachers, school pastoral workers, campus ministers, guidance counsellors and student protection officers
Brisbane Girls Grammar School is a non-denominational school for girls from Year 8 to Year 12. Founded in 1875, it aims to give a quality education in an environment that balances tradition and innovation.
The School aspires to be an international leader in the education of young women and professional teaching practice, establishing the educational foundation for young women to contribute confidently to their world with wisdom, imagination and integrity. Brisbane Girls Grammar School offers an education that provides a basis for continuous learning and one that encourages girls to engage in critical thought using a variety of thinking methodologies.
“Our School is far more than a provider of an academically rigorous education. We offer an environment where girls are encouraged to be discerning and to challenge assumptions; becoming comfortable with uncertainty allows them to be reflective and open to the ideas of others, while fostering a strong sense of self. A Girls Grammar education recognises the particular strengths and needs of the individual, seeking to draw out the very best in every girl.”
- Ms Jacinda Euler, Principal

Serving Brisbane’s rapidly growing Muslim community is the Australian International Islamic College (AIIC) at Durack.
Formerly the Brisbane Muslim School, the College’s change of name reflects the growth of the school and its extension to cover all year levels from Prep to Year 12 as well as vocational education, such as hospitality and automotive studies.
AIIC provides basic Islamic education and also teaches Arabic as a LOTE (Language Other Than English) subject. Only seven of the 14 teachers currently on staff are Muslim, with all staff strictly selected on merit.“We believe the parent should be the primary religious education provider, with the school the place for educational excellence in the secular subjects,” Shahid said. The school provides a bus service across Brisbane for its 265 students, who represent 33 countries of origin
Our mission is to educate students with strong Islamic values and beliefs and provide an excellent academic foundation for students to advance according to the capabilities bestowed on them by Allah, the most high, to excel and achieve their career goals and live harmoniously within the wider community.
