Our Story

Welcome from our Principal

Canterbury College has a well-deserved reputation as one of Queensland’s most innovative independent schools. Our fundamental belief at Canterbury is that every student is deserving of the best teachers, coaches, instructors and wellbeing providers, as they develop skills to tackle the world with confidence.

At Canterbury, we value the development of the whole person, from our youngest Early Learning Centre students to young men and women who emerge by Year 12. Academic and co-curricular excellence, Anglican Church values and an emphasis on serving our community, underpin our approach.

The world is changing rapidly and new skills and insights are required for young people to thrive in the 2020s and beyond. Our aim at Canterbury is to create learning environments which challenge, nurture and provoke our young people to be the thinkers, leaders, entrepreneurs and contributors of tomorrow.

I invite you to Canterbury to see one of Queensland’s premier coeducational schools in action.
