Matthew Flinders Anglican College has a proven record of academic excellence. We proudly maintain our position as a leading school on the Sunshine Coast and one of the top independent schools in Queensland.

This strong reputation is a reflection of our students who are motivated to learn and excel. It’s also a credit to our teachers who inspire curiosity and confidence, and our greater College community who uphold strong values, and provide support and care for our students in a myriad of ways. 

Vision for our Graduates

The aim is for our students to develop character traits and skills that enable them to experience a fulfilled, healthy and successful life, and contribute to making the world a better place. 

Character

As people of courage, respect, compassion and integrity who demonstrate confidence, persistence and resilience

Contribution

As informed citizens who are attuned to their environment and serve their community

Academic Excellence

As accomplished learners who are self-directed and have a spirit of enquiry and adaptability in a fast-changing and information-rich world

Leadership

As effective leaders who can empower others, communicate and collaborate well, and have the capacity to make significant and ethically grounded decisions

No ‘typical’ Flinders student

While academic standards and student motivation levels at Flinders are high, there is no ‘typical’ Flinders student. Our teaching staff are a talented and diverse group of professionals who support and challenge each boy and girl in their own unique talents, interests and learning needs. Flinders students share a common desire. They aim to excel in learning and life, and to be part of a community of learners, working together to realise their full potential.

National Assessment Outcomes

Year 12 students at Flinders consistently achieve strong final results. Our College community proudly guided and supported our Class of 2020 to transition smoothly to the new ATAR system, which replaced the Overall Position (OP) in Queensland.

Flinders is also committed to guiding our students with care through the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN). The results reflect our commitment, with the College named in the top schools in Queensland and the highest achieving schools on the Sunshine Coast.
