Flinders is a leading Queensland independent school with a proven record of academic excellence and a culture that upholds values of Compassion, Respect, Courage and Integrity.
We invite you to book a personalised tour of our rainforest-fringed campus to see for yourself why our College is so highly regarded.
You will discover how our vibrant and caring learning environment and quality staff team enable our 1,360 students from Prep to Year 12 to thrive.
At Flinders, we celebrate rigorous and personalised academic programs that foster exceptional scholarship and a culture of deep learning.
At every step of the learning journey from Prep to Year 12, students are supported by caring and dedicated teachers and staff. The aim is to inspire curiosity, develop critical thinking, foster intellectual agility, and prepare students to be socially conscious and responsible citizens in a culturally diverse world.
Testament to our learning culture is the smooth transition our students made to Queensland's new ATAR system, introduced in 2020. Our first Year 12s to receive ATARs recorded an impressive median ATAR of 93.15. What's more, 12 Flinders students achieved an ATAR of 99 or above, which is roughly equivalent to an OP1.
