Matthew Flinders Anglican College lies at the foothills of Buderim on Queensland’s beautiful Sunshine Coast. Our Prep to Year 12 College is a master-planned campus that blends with the natural, sub-tropical environment.
As we prepare to celebrate our 30-year anniversary of foundation in 2020, Flinders is committed to continuing to build on our reputation for quality, excellence and innovation, and will invest more than $30 million in the next five years as part of our greater Master Plan to provide new agile, contemporary learning spaces for our 1,300 students from Prep to Year 12.
Flinders boasts exceptional educational, performing arts and sporting facilities that encourage student participation in sport, music and cultural pursuits.
