Welcome to Moreton Bay College.

For 120 years, Moreton Bay College has inspired courageous girls.

I warmly welcome you to Moreton Bay College, an independent girls’ school for students from Early Learning to Year 12, set in 20 hectares of beautiful natural surroundings in the Brisbane bayside suburb of Manly West.

It is a privilege to lead Moreton Bay College and its brother school, Moreton Bay Boys’ 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 Mrs Janet Stewart, Principal, Moreton Bay College, we are focussed on preparing our students for tomorrow’s world by offering a varied and relevant curriculum and an enviable breadth of academic and co-curricular opportunities– allowing each girl to fulfil their potential and become confident, courageous and compassionate citizens.

Moreton Bay College was established in 1901, by the pioneering and progressive Greene sisters. We are committed to their vision of a school where all girls are nurtured in a safe, Christian environment.

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 inspiring teachers, our students consistently achieve strong academic outcomes.

Through our wellbeing framework and our unique wellbeing curriculum - the Positive Minds Programme - we are genuinely proactive about student wellbeing.

In 2011, Moreton Bay College was proud to amalgamate with our brother school, Moreton Bay Boys’ College, proving a unique experience for our families. While focussed on single sex education, our girls also have the opportunity to learn alongside boys 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 daughter at Moreton Bay 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.
