Stuartholme School is Brisbane's only Independent Catholic day and boarding secondary school for girls in Years 7 to 12. For Boarders, Stuartholme is their ‘home away from home’. Built at the base of Mt Coot-tha, only 6kms from Brisbane’s CBD, Stuartholme is close to everything yet provides the girls with a quiet, safe environment where they can live and learn.

With a focus on the individual, Stuartholme promotes an education that stimulates creative learning and leadership, enabling every girl to reach her full potential.

As a progressive international Sacred Heart School, Stuartholme School is committed to educating the whole person. The School's rigorous academic program together with their supportive learning environment teaches resilience and self-value where every student feels confident in her ability to contribute to a global society.

Stuartholme is small enough for each student to be personally known, yet large enough to offer an extensive, ever-changing and dynamic range of opportunities. The School’s long tradition of academic excellence reflects the dedication and hard work of their teachers and students.

Stuartholme offers an extensive curriculum, based on teaching students ‘how to learn’, rather than memorising, rehearsing and recalling information.

This focus on deeper learning means Stuartholme girls graduate with a much richer education. It also provides them with the tools to know what to do, when they don’t know what to do.

Stuartholme offers two Scholarships and Bursaries:

The Sister Mary Brennan Scholarships of Excellence for new students commencing entry into Years 7, 10 and 11. The Scholarships provide 50 percent remission of tuition fees (not including boarding fees), for the duration of your daughters schooling. Scholarship-holders are expected to maintain academic excellence which will be monitored each semester throughout their years of schooling at Stuartholme. Awarding the Scholarships is based on the ACER (Australian Council for Educational Research) Scholarship Test results.

Stuartholme School is pleased to launch the Centenary Boarding Bursary for 2020 entrants to coincide with our 100 year celebrations.

The Bursary is designed to assist families who live more than 200 kilometres away from the school and would be unable to consider Stuartholme School due to financial reasons.

This Bursary is open to new year 7 and 9 students wishing to commence at Stuartholme School in 2020 as a Boarder.
