A New School of Thought.

This is at the very heart of Brisbane Boys' College. Like each of our boys, BBC has its own unique place in the world. It’s a story that belongs to our entire community and one that brings to life our guiding philosophy – All about the boy. It articulates our approach, how we think differently and importantly highlights our thought leadership on boys’ education. 

Brisbane Boys’ College is a GPS boys school with day students from Prep to Year 12 and boarding students in Years 4 to 12. As a boys' school, BBC is specifically tailored to meet the needs of young men as they progress through their education, delivering active learning to help boys discover who they are and to explore their passion and purpose in life. 

Schools don't have to be purely theoretical. They can be places where students think about real-world problems and look for real-world solutions. At Brisbane Boys' College, we explore the four corners of a boy's mind.


Each year we hold a series of open days where we welcome students, their families and the community to explore our school and join us in interactive activities.

You’re invited to attend one of our Open Mornings on Friday 13 May and Friday 20 May, or the College’s premier event, Open Evening on Friday 5 August from 4pm to 8pm. Tour the school, learn more about our philosophy on boys’ education, discover the broad range of learning experiences offered, and speak directly with our staff on why BBC is the school of choice for so many families.

We are also more than happy to arrange personal tours throughout the year. To learn more about places available at Brisbane Boys' College for your son or to arrange a tour, please contact Student Admissions - or 07 3309 3658.

Message from the Principal

Expect great things. As a school we deal with dreams. Dreams of parents who envisage what their sons could become and probably even more importantly, dreams of boys who reflect on what they could achieve. The school your son attends will shape his life and we have the great privilege of playing a part in creating tomorrow's world.
Brisbane Boys' College founder, Mr Arthur Rudd, believed that education was the key to human progress and in the more than 100 years since our school's foundation in 1902, a host of educators with flair and commitment have carried out the important task of moulding young men into gentlemen of honour; competent and confident adults, prepared to face the many challenges of a changing world.

The boys who are about to enter our college come with unlimited potential, and it is our responsibility as educators to nurture their God-given talents to enable them to achieve personal excellence.

My experience has been that when an adult shows confidence in a boy, that confidence is not just reciprocated, it is returned with interest. As Headmaster, I have the great good fortune to build on a wonderful tradition of achievement at Brisbane Boys' College and to encourage the next generation of our students to the confidence and capability to change the world.

Mr Graeme McDonald
