Nestled in a picturesque, semi-rural setting in Brisbane's Bayside, Kimberley College is recognised for developing students with integrity, social responsibility and confidence. We believe that young people learn best when they have structure as well as space and time to foster creativity - time to think and grow. We think that learning should be inspirational, challenging and fun. At Kimberley College we are all about learning and believe that all people can learn and improve within a supportive College community. We strive for individual growth and personal bests. Our teachers have a strong belief in the need to develop moral and social intelligence in an environment which respects all religious and secular beliefs.

So, what makes Kimberley College so different?

  • Our classrooms are multi-aged because research shows that students learn at their level of ability, not age or year level
  • Our classrooms are team-taught and draw upon more than one educator’s knowledge and experience to teach students
  • Our education is non-graded from Prep to Year 10
  • We teach critical thinking and problem-solving skills
  • We write our own thematic curriculum based on ‘real world’ issues whilst still aligning with ACARA standards
  • We differentiate our teaching and we champion the student’s right to negotiate their learning
  • We promote group work and hands-on learning
  • We teach students to have a social conscience
  • We assess students via assignment work, presentations, rich tasks, and in their demonstration of skills, not through exams from Prep to Year 10
  • We are reserved and selective in our use of technology in education
  • We are vigilant in the fight against bullying
  • Our teachers are creative risk-takers who are always looking for new and better ways to engage students
  • Our campus is nestled within a picturesque, natural environment
  •  All that we do is focused on the individual child
  • Our staff love working here

At Kimberley College we work in partnership with you and your family to nurture, stimulate and challenge your child.  Our teachers have a strong belief in the need to develop moral and social intelligence in an environment which respects all religious and secular beliefs.
