Set on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Queensland on a rainforest-fringed campus, our College’s mission is to challenge and support our 1,350 students from Prep to Year 12. Alongside the College is the Flinders Early Learning Centre (FELC), which provides a quality and caring early years education with a well-regarded forest kindy program.
Students are guided to explore and uphold the College values of Courage, Respect, Integrity and Compassion. This focus enables Flinders students to develop the competencies of character, academic excellence, contribution and leadership for a successful future.
Families at Flinders appreciate the school culture and environment as it promotes academic excellence, inspires intellectual curiosity, expects personal accountability and instils a genuine passion for learning.
The passion for learning at the College is evident in the strong results achieved by the College’s Year 12s. The Class of 2020 achieved impressive final academic results, with some of the following highlights:
• 12 students achieved an ATAR of 99 or above (roughly equivalent to an OP1)
• Median ATAR of 93.15 (roughly equivalent to an OP4 or higher)
• Student Justin Holland achieved the state’s highest score of 99.95 along with only 30 other students across Queensland
• 24 students achieved straight A grades in all subjects
Student life at Flinders is rich and diverse, with a rigorous and personalised academic program, participation in sporting, cultural and recreational activities, and opportunities to exercise leadership, entrepreneurialism, citizenship and ethical learning.
It is an exciting time of expansion and innovation at the College with the new Flinders Masterplan construction project in full swing. The Masterplan created the new Year 7 Precinct, which opened in August 2020, and the new Years 5 and 6 Precinct, which opened in January 2021. The new Wonderarium learning resource centre will open in the Primary School in Term 4 of 2021, and a new Design Centre in 2022. More projects will follow.
Student health, wellbeing and care is fully integrated throughout teaching, learning and structural organisation at the College. It is our whole College community’s responsibility to effectively meet the personal, social, spiritual and academic needs of students.
Personalised tours of the Flinders campus are offered throughout the year to families considering a quality education at Flinders.
At Flinders, our Curriculum Philosophy aims to cultivate in each student a love of learning; a spirit to achieve mastery and personal best; and the character, integrity and qualities of leadership to shape our world.
The curriculum guides our students to personalise their learning, set goals, and develop positive learner traits so they may reach their potential as lifelong learners.
Learning at Flinders is designed to be meaningful, experiential and consequential to the world beyond so that students learn they are connected to one another and a part of the global community. This world view helps Flinders students to see how they are significant, important and cared for by others.
