Academic Excellence

​Are you looking for a quality education for your child? Do you want your child to feel part of a creative and caring Christian community?

As the oldest independent secondary school on the Sunshine Coast, St John’s Catholic College in Nambour has been caring for students for the past seventy seven years.

Our students consistently achieve excellent academic results (average 80-90% OP 1 - 15).  The College is renowned for its inclusive and supportive culture and its quality Christian based education.

In 2018, our OP's were distributed as follows:

  • OP 1-5 – 15 students (20%)
  • OP 6-10 – 21 students (27%)
  • OP 11-15 – 25 students (32%)
  • OP 16-20 – 17 students (21%)

Proudly, I pass on that we had 4 students achieved an OP 1 result:  Joshua Carr, Stella Haycock, Peggy Lohman and Claudia Kos. 

As a College we are very proud of our entire 2018 senior body.  The impressive OP results are a reflection of the hard work the students put in.  They were supported by an amazing team; with Curriculum Leaders, teachers of senior classes and our QCS Preparation Team all working together to ensure our students could put their best foot forward.  Furthermore, the skills needed for these results were developed across their entire schooling.

Further results of students achieving an OP 2-5 include:

OP 2 – Catherine Quinn

OP 3 – Cody McCullagh

OP 4 – Winton Brook, Caitlin De Paoli, Daniel England, Jessica Pepper, Kelly Telford, Cartia Thompson

OP 5 – Peter Mann, Thomas McDonald, Daniel Snels
