About Us

Welcome From Principal Mr Dan Walker

Canterbury College enjoys a well-deserved reputation as one of South-East Queensland’s most innovative and inclusive private Anglican ELC, Kindy and Prep – Year 12 coeducational schools.

Every school day, term, semester and year we keep striving to be the top Primary School and the best High School in Brisbane.

Over 1,500 busy, active, well-rounded, keen-to-learn and happy students – alongside larger new enrolment numbers each year, is living proof of our educational success as Logan’s leading private school.

Our fundamental belief is that every student deserves the best teachers, coaches, instructors and wellbeing providers, as they develop skills to tackle the world with confidence and compassion.

So if you live within our handy bus routes territory, which stretches all directions from our Waterford campus – North to Upper Mount Gravatt, South to Beaudesert, East to Ormeau and West to Greenbank, then please get in touch…

You will find our private school fees extremely competitive for the academic, social, physical, creative, emotional, spiritual and character development invested into your child or children; and the huge range of college experiences and campus facilities available to them.

Canterbury’s DNA

  • Academic Aspiration
  • Emphasis On ‘All-Roundedness’
  • Multicultural & Multi-Faith
  • Kindness & Discipline
  • Community
  • Social Justice & Service With Anglican Values

Here’s the ‘million dollar question’… What type of school is Canterbury?

Are we an academic school? A sporting school? Focused on the Arts? Pre-occupied with character development, service and leadership?

My answer to those who ask, is that we are both all of these and none of these. Let me explain…

There is no reason to think that we can or should only be capable of excellence in just one area.

I think that sells our students and our teachers short.

My emphasis as the Principal is to create an environment where each of the four dimensions of a Canterbury education is properly nurtured and resourced.

It is possible to be both a great sporting school and an award-winning performing arts school.

It is possible to expect continuous academic improvement in all our students, while ensuring their wellbeing and character development is well attended to.

It all comes down to having high expectations and having quality staff leading our student programs.

I truly believe that we offer you world-class teaching, coaching, pastoral care and wellbeing staff, who are genuine, extremely knowledgeable and compassionate.

And we provide this while maintaining high standards in uniform presentation, personal behaviour and social interactions.

Through my conversations with new parents or carers to our Canterbury Community – many of whom have long attachments to their previous schools, I know how important a holistic, ‘all-round’ education is to them for their children.

Canterbury’s ‘World Ready’ focus means that our overriding aim is to nurture and inspire confident, optimistic and compassionate young people who can navigate the world beyond our school gate.

We are proudly Logan’s leading ‘all-rounder’ private Anglican school and we take our responsibility to deliver on this ‘World Ready’ promise very seriously.

I warmly invite you to visit our beautiful Canterbury campus to see our premier coeducational school in action.
