'A big private school with a small school community feel’ set on 30 hectares of beautiful natural bushland in Waterford.

We are a proudly academic boys and girls Anglican College, serving the fast-growing Logan, southern Brisbane and northern Gold Coast corridor since 1987.

We can take your son or daughter all the way from Pre-Kindy or Prep, right up until their Year 12 graduation – helping you and your children make ‘Canterbury Family’ friends for life.

Our Student Pathways Office even supports our graduates after school – with flexible pathways into university, further education, training, careers and more.

We cap our small class sizes, offer a disciplined yet kind environment, and a supportive pastoral care House system, featuring specialist staff.

Our staff get to know your children by name and what’s important to them, and how we can help.

At Canterbury we focus on the whole child – their academic, physical, creative, cultural and social-emotional sides, and their spiritual development.

And we keep them busy with study, sports, music and 20 different activity clubs or ‘thought sports’ – as mentally and physically engaged youth are happy youth.

Our Core Values are: Respect, Integrity, Community, Scholarship, Compassion and Social Responsibility.

Our School Motto is: 'Fortior Quo Paratior' which means: The better prepared, the stronger.

Our School Vision is: To inspire and nurture confident, optimistic and compassionate young people who are ready for the world.

That’s why our core mantra is World Ready – doing everything we can to produce well-rounded, academic, active, happy, successful and resilient graduates.

Finally, our 2021-29 Campus Master Plan ensures bright and engaging classrooms and learning spaces, surrounded by wonderful adventure playgrounds and social student hubs.
