Situated in a semi-rural bush setting at Carbrook on the border of Redland and Logan, Kimberley College provides students with a calm and stress-free campus environment in which to learn and grow. Catering for prep to Year 12, the co-educational, non-denominational school takes a holistic approach to education and aims to graduate students with integrity, confidence, and social responsibility.
At Kimberley College, the true merit of each student’s individual educational journey is seen as much more than just a number on a piece of paper. The school not only supports academic learning, but also social and emotional learning and provides a safe environment for developing character, leadership, social and critical thinking skills. Following the Marzano educational framework, the school seeks to provide genuine opportunities for individuals to become engaged, think of others, and to live the change they want to see.
One way that Kimberley College is making this difference is with its Wellbeing Program, designed to nurture and grow social and emotional competencies. The program is embedded across all year levels and is a core component of the school’s pastoral care system. Opportunities include Invictus wellbeing presentations for both parents and students, participation in whole of school events like the World’s Greatest Shave and a peer mentoring program for Year 7 students as they transition to high school — run by senior student volunteers. Students also have access to the Student Hub as well as membership in the Student Council.
Senior students have a choice of study pathways, including university ATAR, vocational studies and apprenticeships.
Kimberley College is well-regarded for its range of extracurricular activities on offer, which include an instrumental music program, college rock band, representative and premier sports, debating and public speaking, all designed to provide genuine opportunities for students to find their purpose and passion. The school also hosts distinguished football and dance academies.
