Presbyterian & Methodist Schools Association
Brisbane Boys’ College is one of four outstanding schools owned by the Presbyterian and Methodist Schools Association (PMSA) along with our sibling schools Clayfield College, Somerville House and Sunshine Coast Grammar School.
Established in 1918, the PMSA is a joint mission of the Uniting Church in Australia, Queensland Synod and the Presbyterian Church of Queensland.
The PMSA Group is governed by a Board of Directors which comprises up to 13 Board members. To assist the PMSA Board provide quality education services to achieve the PMSA vision, mission and values, four PMSA Board committees provide specialist advice.
The Brisbane Boys’ College School Council is delegated the responsibility to govern and administer the performance of the school.
Each PMSA school is governed by a School Council which consists of up to nine members. Each School Council is a committee of the PMSA Board and includes the school’s Headmaster as a non-voting member, up to two PMSA Board members, and up to six independent School Council members appointed from the school’s community. The PMSA Board delegates the responsibility for governance oversight, administration and performance to these School Councils. Headmasters report to these School Councils and have operational responsibility for the schools.
Each School Council’s Charter outlines the School Council’s objectives, responsibilities, and governance framework as well as their relationship to the PMSA Group.
