Welcome to St Brendan's College, Central Queensland's leading Catholic secondary school for boys, operating since 1940. We are a day and boarding school for boys from Years 7 to 12, located on a beautiful 300 acres only minutes to the beaches of Yeppoon and only a 30 minute drive from Rockhampton.
We provide diverse academic and extra-curricular programs, giving boys significant opportunities to grow into young men of knowledge, respect and faith.
Our emphasis is on the development of the whole person and in particular the need to grow boys into respectful, confident and successful young men of faith. A proactive Pastoral Care program and the Edmund Rice ethos underpins all endeavors and creates boys who understand and believe in service to the community in a spirit of justice and solidarity.
We have a strong focus on promoting the safety and wellbeing of young men under our care. Our responsibilities for child safeguarding are taken extremely seriously and we commit to ensuring that our College has appropriate policies and practices to make it safe and inclusive. Crucial to this, is student voice and agency. EREA’s School Child Safeguarding Programs are regularly updated and checked for compliance with regulatory requirements and all staff undertake mandatory Child Safeguarding Training.
We have a strong academic program which offers multiple pathways for students to pursue tertiary education or move into trade-based qualifications, with a significant and renowned vocational education and training (VET) facility onsite.
The College is recognised nationally for its sporting prowess, and has abundant co-curricular opportunities, including music, cultural and technology programs that are second to none in Central Queensland.
Our College community strives for excellence and has a reputation for producing friendly, hard-working and down-to-earth young men. Enrolments are drawn from the Capricorn Coast, from rural and regional Queensland and from as far north as the Torres Strait. With this diversity of students, strong cultural and social interactions are assured and friendships are often maintained for life.
The boarding residences provide a wonderful living environment for boarders, nestled amongst beautiful gardens, abundant sporting fields and adjacent to the first-class academic facilities of the College. Every opportunity is at the boys’ fingertips and with guidance from our Head of Boarding, Fr Pius Jones, the Heads of Residence, House parents and members of the support services, there is space for them to grow and mature.
We are a diverse, vibrant and welcoming community founded on the values of the Gospel. St Brendan’s College is confident that in providing a well-rounded education in partnership with parents and families, the young men of the College will enter the world with the knowledge, confidence, values and skills to make a difference.
More than an education, we are proud that young men leave our College with a brotherhood and belonging for life. We invite you to discover a snapshot of life at St Brendan’s College by browsing our website and welcome you to visit and tour our College.
