An independent, co-educational, non-denominational College situated in Redland City
Committed to its basic philosophy of Love, Laughter and Learning, the College caters for children from 15 months of age through to Year 12. The College campus is located on 56 acres in a semi-rural setting in Taylor Road Sheldon. The College was established in 1997 and is committed to providing a quality education for all students in a safe, secure learning environment which is characterised by high standards for both staff and students in the areas of dress and appearance, behaviour and individual scholarship and work habits.
The mission of Sheldon College is to provide a quality educational experience in an environment which encourages and enables our students to succeed in a constantly changing world. Our Student Exit Outcomes ensure our students leave our College equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to become self directed learners, effective communicators and collaborators, creative thinkers, problem solvers, innovators, information and media literate, skilled in the core literacies, and possessing high self esteem.
At Sheldon College we see education as a partnership between the home and the school and we believe fundamentally that "What the homes are, the schools will be, and what the two are the future will be."
