St. Paul’s School is located on the banks of the South Pine River in Bald Hills, a northern suburb of Brisbane. The centre of Brisbane is about 17 km away and is very well connected via the Caboolture line. The train station is close to the school.
The 51 hectare campus includes the school buildings as well as sports fields and pastures. A number of pines, originally planted in the 1850s, are listed as historical monuments.
Modern facilities include the music centre, the renovated design/technology building, the Geize Library and science laboratories. The new Sutton Building houses the school’s own café and the “International School” with a high school preparation programme for those who need to improve their English before being integrated into the classroom with Australian students. This International School operates as a separate entity and is an accredited provider of intensive English courses for foreign students.
St Paul’s School has developed unique teaching and learning techniques aimed at facilitating exceptional educational practices throughout the school.
St Paul’s School is listed among Australia’s 40 most innovative schools, and in 2017 it was named one of the top 100 most innovative learning organisations in the world in Cambridge University’s “Innovation 800” series. In 2018, the school was awarded four national prizes: Best Strategic Plan, Best Curriculum Innovation, Best (Non-Governmental) Headmaster and Best Staff Development Programme.
