Our goal is to inspire your son, give him the confidence to take control of his life and create his own bright future.
Each student will be nurtured and educated to develop his God-given talents to the best of his ability through balanced involvement in the academic, spiritual, service, sporting and cultural life of the College.
Our innovative approach to education integrates best practice teaching and learning with the science of wellbeing, and in doing so, safeguards the most important ingredient to a boy’s success: confidence. At BBC, we refer to this approach as A New School of Thought.
To produce men who have the confidence and capability to change the world.
A New School of Thought
A boy who is confident can move forward. Stride into the future. Cope with change. At BBC, we are acutely aware that many of our students will graduate into jobs and careers which have not yet been created. We must ‘future-proof’ our students by developing young men who not only have strong foundational knowledge, but who are also critical thinkers, with creative and curious minds, and a collaborative disposition.
Not all schools are the same. Our approach is to develop boys’ minds to be forward thinking and assist them in exploring their passion and purpose in life.
No single person leads our great College in isolation. Our success is driven through collective effort and a culture where we utilise each other’s strengths, to grow and push each other to our limits and redefine our boundaries for success.
Since 1909 the tradition of boarding has played an important role at Brisbane Boys’ College. Boarding is part of who we are.
For boarders, BBC moves beyond education to total care, offering a unique opportunity for boys to meet friends from around Australia and the world, as they develop confidence, character and independence with support from an inclusive connected community.
Choosing a school for your child is one of life’s biggest decisions. Just as every child is different, every school offers its own unique blend of academic and co-curricular opportunities. At Brisbane Boys’ College we consider the transition to a new school to be a significant milestone and make every effort to ensure this is as enjoyable and seamless as possible.
