At Earnshaw State College we provide Prep to Year 12 education in Banyo, a vibrant and growing district north of Brisbane.
Our college is just a five-minute walk from a train station and a 20-minute train journey to the centre of Brisbane.
Nudgee Beach and one of Brisbane’s most significant Aboriginal sites are a short walk away, while the wonderful beaches of the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast are less than one hour by car.
We provide many opportunities for you to engage in academic, cultural and sporting pursuits and our college staff build strong relationships with students to develop a thorough understanding of you and your aspirations.
At Earnshaw State College we encourage you to be engaged and motivated to learn in a healthy, happy college culture that achieves results and builds your confidence and skills for the future.
