Private Schools for Country Students
Three schools, All Souls St Gabriels and Toowoomba Grammar and Cathedral School ran information Areas for students wishing to study in Toowoomba
Toowoomba Grammar School (est.1875) is a non-denominational day and boarding school for boys (Prep - Year 12) with a total enrolment of 950 boys of whom approximately 300 are boarders. The School is one of the nine Great Public Schools (GPS) of Queensland.
Boarding at All Souls St Gabriels School Our students come from all over Northern Australia, as well as the Pacific, Papua New Guinea and more recently, Europe.
We believe that this experience is an enriching experience in itself. Boarders learn self-reliance and independence as well as a tolerance of others.
Boarding House life provides, within a Christian environment:
* an opportunity for development of character, self discipline, leadership and initiative.
* an opportunity to develop a set of values based upon respect, consideration, honesty and trust.
* an opportunity to learn to cope with the successes and challenges of school life in the supportive, caring and encouraging environment of the House.
Welcome to The Cathedral School -Townsville's only Anglican school for boys and girls from Early Childhood to Year 12, including boarding students from Year 7 to Year 12.
At Cathedral, we are 'educating for life-long success' . We know that this requires a well-rounded education - to develop the "whole person" by nurturing the body and spirit as well as the mind.
