Welcome to Moreton Bay Boys' College

Our learning environment built for boys.

I warmly welcome you to Moreton Bay Boys’ College, an independent boys’ school for students from Kindergarten to Year 12, set within 13 hectares of bushland and native plants, with a 5.5-hectare nature sanctuary, in the Brisbane bayside suburb of Manly West.

It is a privilege to lead Moreton Bay Boys’ College and its sister school, Moreton Bay College, as CEO and Executive Principal. At the Colleges we place prominence on a high-quality education which instils a culture of respect; inclusion and collaboration; proactive community service; genuine inquiry; and international mindedness. These are principles which are lived at the Colleges and they support our Values of Engagement, Character, Care and Teamwork.  

As an internationally experienced educational leader, my passion is to ensure our students thrive in an ever-changing global society while also developing a deep appreciation for their own heritage.  I firmly believe in the primacy of student and staff wellbeing and the inherent value of strong partnerships between our students, staff, parents and the local community - underpinned by integrity and transparency.

In collaboration with Mr Andrew Holmes, Principal, Moreton Bay Boys’ College, we are focussed on preparing our students for tomorrow’s world. We believe in the limitless potential of each boy, with an unwavering passion to ensure his aspirations are met and he becomes the best version of himself.

We are an authorised International Baccalaureate (IB) World School which offers the Primary Years Programme (PYP). Inquiry based learning starts with the PYP and continues into our Secondary School through our unique Teaching and Learning framework. Guided by highly qualified and passionate teachers, our students consistently achieve strong academic outcomes.

We are passionate about developing and nurturing students in an inclusive and diverse Christian learning environment. Through our wellbeing framework - Five to Thrive - we are genuinely proactive about student wellbeing.

In 2011, Moreton Bay Boys’ College was proud to amalgamate with our sister school, Moreton Bay College, proving a unique experience for our families. While focussed on single sex education, our boys also have the opportunity to learn alongside girls in several co-curricular music, sport and academic programmes. We are Two Colleges, One Community.

As you browse the website and view our Virtual Tour, you will gain insight into the unique educational experience we can offer your son at Moreton Bay Boys’ College.  I encourage you to contact our Enrolments Team and join us on a tour of the College so that you can see the classrooms in action, meet teachers, students and our Leadership Team.

We look forward to welcoming you to our College.
