About us
Brisbane Boys' College is an established GPS day and boarding school. The school was founded in 1902 by Mr Arthur Rudd, who had a vision of moulding boys to be worthy leaders and good citizens – a vision which remains today. The College occupies a 13-hectare site, four kilometres from the centre of Brisbane and has a current enrolment of 1560 boys from Prep to Year 12, across three sub schools: Junior (Prep to Year 6), Middle (Years 7 to 9) and Senior School (Years 10 to 12).
Our Guiding Philosophy
The future isn't what it used to be. Recognising that knowledge-based learning is no longer enough, Brisbane Boys' College focuses on teaching boys how to think; not only to solve problems, but to recognise them in the first place. We encourage them to question the status quo and solve problems to make the world a better place. Not just when they leave school, but now at BBC. We know boys. We know how to harness their energy, curiosity and thirst for competition. We call this 'A New School of Thought'.  As experts in boys' education, we view learning within the framework of childhood development with our approach contextualised by our guiding philosophy - 'All About the Boy'.
Our Purpose
To produce young men who have the confidence and capability to change the world.
