The school was established in 1982 by the Menai Baptist Church. Its mission is "to be a Christ-centred learning community, pursuing excellence in education with every individual known and loved". With just over 1000 students it is small enough to create a close community of care but also large enough to give students the subject choice and resources to enable them to succeed. 

The Inaburra difference rests in a careful balance between educational excellence and character formation. Once a student enters the Inaburra community, teachers are dedicated to shaping them into resourceful thinkers and life-long learners. 

THE SENIOR SCHOOL LEARNING COMMONS
The Learning Commons is an innovative space designed to bring together the functions of library, studio, individual study pods and seminar zones. It has been a game changer for Inaburra students in Years 7-12, many now choosing to take part in the after-school study program. Flexibility is the key, enabling each student to arrange their workspace in a way that facilitates the activity of the moment. The Commons provides an experience akin to contemporary tertiary education facilities. In dispensing with a traditional classroom structure the Commons encourages collaborative learning where staff adopt the role of mentor or coach rather than teacher. 

Co-Curricular: Students are also given the opportunity to participate in co-curricular programs that are on offer throughout the week. These include an extensive Music and Strings program, Debating, Science Club, Tech Crew and Dance Troupe. Peripatetic music tutors are available to teach musical instruments or singing as individual lessons. The school stages a Musical Production every year, alternating between Junior and Senior schools. This is performed to the general public over three nights in the Performing Arts Centre. 

Inaburra has a strong tradition of academic excellence with the vast majority of students completing Year 12 and earning a HSC and an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank.

Students have a varied program of learning in Years 7 and 8, including English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Biblical Studies, Chinese (Mandarin), PDHPE, Information Technology, Technology subjects (covering food, wood, metal, design), Music and Visual Arts. In Years 9 and 10 the syllabus includes English, Mathematics, Science, Australian Geography Civics and Citizenship, Australian History Civics and Citizenship, Physical Development, Health and Physical Education, Computer Skills and Biblical Studies. These years provide the opportunity for students to choose from a wide range of elective subjects. For their HSC, students select a minimum of 12 units of study in Year 11, and a minimum of 10 units in Year 12.
