About Stuartholme

Stuartholme School is a renowned Catholic day and boarding school in the heart of Brisbane’s Western suburbs. We pride ourselves on providing a high school education, fostering girl’s creativity, identity and confidence. We strive to ensure a nurturing environment for all girls across all year levels, to equip them with all the knowledge to pursue their aspirations in the present and later in life.

As one of Brisbane’s finest and only all-girls day and boarding Catholic schools, we instil in our students the values of respect, integrity and honesty. We inspire the girls of Stuartholme to become confident high-level thinkers and aspiring global citizens beyond the gates of our private campus.

As a progressive, international Sacred Heart School, Stuartholme School is committed to educating the whole person. Our rigorous academic program together with our supportive learning environment teaches resilience and self-value where every student feels confident in her contributions.

In 2020 the Stuartholme celebrates its centenary.

Learning

Stuartholme educates every girl to reach her full potential. Students are kept engaged through dynamic teaching strategies and vibrant learning environments. Stuartholme is committed to inclusive education and best practice principles of teaching and learning with opportunities for students to strive for personal excellence.  

Stuartholme offers an extensive curriculum, based on teaching students ‘how to learn’, rather than memorising, rehearsing and recalling information. This focus on deeper learning means Stuartholme girls graduate with a much richer education. It also provides them with the tools to know what to do, when they don’t know what to do.

Effective study techniques are taught to ensure students are well prepared to achieve their study goals both at school and after they graduate.

Enrichment and extension is available through curriculum differentiation, subject offerings, competitions and special programs.

The co-curricular program offers over 45 activities from Sport, Music, Drama, Art, Debating, and Future Problem Solving to name a few; which reinforce the value of ‘learning beyond of the classroom’. Students are encouraged to explore opportunities that enrich their schooling and develop their talents and interests. 

Student Wellbeing

Student Wellbeing permeates every activity and interaction at Stuartholme School.  At Stuartholme every initiative and action are influenced by the Goals of Sacred Heart Education, which endorses a more cooperative approach to learning and personal growth. Working together to create a learning environment that deliberately links learning and wellbeing to ensure our students are more academically resilient and tenacious. In keeping with the Australian Student Wellbeing Framework, we support our students to develop a strong understanding of themselves to promote independence and capability as leaders within a global community.  

The Student Wellbeing Program covers a variety of age-appropriate topics for each student cohort. The program covers topics including personal and online safety, time management, resilience, bullying, mindfulness, appropriate use of technology and managing friendships/relationships which are explored at developmentally appropriate stages.
