  • Welcome to The Cathedral School

    Townsville's only Independent Anglican School for boys and girls from Early Childhood (including Kindergarten) to Year 12 and boarding students from Year 7 to 12.

    At Cathedral, we are 'educating for life-long success'. We know that this requires a well-rounded education - to develop the "whole person" by nurturing the body and spirit as well as the mind.

  • A palaeontologist in the making - it all starts with play

    Cathedral's Prep program is child-centred and fosters the development of social, emotional, cognitive, creative and physical skills of each child.

    Working alongside children, teachers initiate opportunities for them to express their thoughts and ideas, to test their theories and to reflect upon their thinking.

  • Empowering our students with 21st Century skills

    Enrol for Year 7 today

    Cathedral’s Middle School curriculum is a mix of challenge, basic foundations and some student choice. It includes a range of traditional and modern skills that prepare students for the academic rigours of Senior School and for participation in our increasingly complex, information driven, society.

Cathedral opens the Wonder Hub

Staff and students at Cathedral’s Junior School are getting excited with the opening of the school’s newest learning space, The Wonder Hub on Tuesday 20 March.

As the name suggests the Wonder Hub has been designed as an intriguing space to inspire students to wonder.

The Wonder Hub will be home to a very exciting ancient marine reptile fossil which will be on display permanently for students to see. The fossil was discovered by Rob Ievers on Marathon Station in 2011 while mustering cattle. He was able to identify very quickly that these were the remains of a marine reptile called an Ichthyosaur. Ichthyosaurs lived and swam in the Cretaceous Inland Sea of Queensland around one hundred million years ago. 


Enhancing the STEM curriculum at Cathedral with Drone Technology

The Cathedral School in Townsville has partnered with national organisation, She Flies, to use the world of drones to inspire and further engage children of both sexes in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

The program will be initially introduced to the Year 8 students with plans already in place to expand the program into Year 7.

Year 8 Digital Technology teacher Ms Tiina Kauppila said by partnering with organisations outside of the school, we have the opportunity to expose students to a broader variety of skills, resources and expertise.


Top marks for our Centenary Year graduates!

The Cathedral School is delighted to congratulate the Year 12 students from 2017 on their final academic results. Following a busy year, highlighted by academic, vocational and extracurricular achievements, as well as the school’s Centenary celebrations, our students are now looking forward to the university offers they will receive from QTAC in January.

Students applying to University through the OP pathway had their results released online on Saturday and we are pleased to announce that 17.4% received an OP 1-3 compared with a state average of 11.75%, and 61.6% of students received an OP from 1-10 compared with a state average of 53.05%.

Special congratulations must go to our three students who received the highest score possible in Queensland, an OP 1, John Atkinson (joint School Dux), Simone de Nys (joint School Dux) and Sophie Horlock (School Captain).
