About St Aidan’s
St Aidan’s is a Preparatory to Year 12 Anglican day school for girls which is located in leafy suburban Brisbane. The school’s population of around 900 students reflects our belief that students experience many benefits in a smaller school environment. St Aidan’s was established in 1929 by an Anglican religious order the Sisters of the Society of the Sacred Advent and continues to hold their values and traditions. Our environment is one which cares for all and seeks to provide a nurturing and supportive school experience where each girl is able to safely grow and evolve her gifts and belief in herself.
Excellence in Education for Girls
As a girls’ school St Aidan’s offers an environment where girls can study achieve and reach their full potential. We strive to provide a school where each girl is known and cared for where she is encouraged to strive for academic success for leadership; for participation in extra curricula activities; for personal growth and the development of self confidence.
The school consistently records a high level of academic achievement in Year 12. From the earliest years our students are provided with the tuition and resources to enable them to reach their potential. St Aidan’s we respond to catering for the individual needs of our students by ensuring that a variety of learning strategies are employed. This approach designed to encourage academic achievement and success is an important characteristic of the learning environment at St Aidan’s. There are computers in all junior classrooms. Specialist teachers work with students from Prep - Year 6. Year 7s enjoy a transition program and their own “precinct” adjacent to senior school facilities. They also enjoy specialist teaching lessons in much of their academic program allowing them a smooth transition to Year Eight studies.
