Find an independent school
The independent sector provides parents a choice of education institution based on their values, community and culture. With more than 200 Queensland independent schools to choose from, you are sure to find a learning environment that best suits your child's needs.
Independent schools make a significant contribution to education in Queensland, educating 121,000 students. More than half of all independent schools in Queensland are either operating or are co-located and affiliated with an early childhood service.
