St John Fisher College is a Catholic secondary girls’ college administered by Brisbane Catholic Education. It is located in Bracken Ridge, an outer northern suburb of Brisbane and attracts students from approximately 32 primary schools across a wide area of the northern suburbs. Buildings are single level with extensive grounds and gardens and it is well resourced across all areas. While academic learning is very important, an holistic approach to education means that each student’s spiritual, social and emotional growth is promoted. The College has a well developed pastoral care program and a curriculum designed to meet the needs and abilities of the students. Girls are strongly encouraged to become involved in the extensive co-curricular program of the College and share their gifts and talents with the wider school community. While the College has a strong emphasis on performance and culture, sport is also an important part of college life. St John Fisher College has developed strong links with the wider community in the local area.
