At St John's College we provide quality education in an environment that nurtures children in their Catholic faith.

St John's College is an outstanding inclusive co-educational Catholic High School administered by Brisbane Catholic Education.  St John's has a current enrolment of 765 students and is staffed by professional, experienced, passionate and dedicated teachers.  St John's has been established for thirty five years on its present site and seventy five years as a Catholic secondary school in Nambour, and has a fine tradition of scholastic, cultural, sporting and extra-curricaul success.

Congratulations to Year 12, 2014 on their excellent OP results.

The Graduating class of 2014 worked extremely hard during the year and they have been justly rewarded.  The partnerships of home and school have paid huge dividends again and we continue to reinforce the strength and reputation of St John's College as an academically successful school.
I have listed the top OP 1-10 results below (42 students out of 72 OP eligible students) as well as the excellent percentages of OP rankings achieved by Year 12 OP students:

24% of OP eligible students received an OP1-5, 58% received an OP 1-10 and  89% received an OP1-15. St. John's was 5 points above State average on the QCS data and this is also outstanding and played a large part in the high ranking OP results. 

This is again another outstanding result for Johnnies students and compares very favourably with the best in the state and is again above the average for BCE schools.

As we are well aware, St. John's does not offer academic scholarships nor is it selective and these results are again indicative of value adding to a students achievements at St. John's. Staff are to be congratulated on their passion, professionalism and expertise and their contribution to these results.

OP 2:  Lachlan Brown, Jayden Fitsimon
OP 3:  Sophie Wheeler, Lily Quirin,Lauren Hodges, Sally-Anne Rusell,Alice Ashby

The lowest score was an OP 18 and considering that the range is from 1-25 this too is quite outstanding. 

Other notable achievements were 62 students completed a Cert I, 25 students completed a Cert II, 11 students completed a Cert III, 1 student completed a Cert IV and 1 student completed a University subject. 
Well done to all staff, parents, carers and students.

An offer of a place is then posted to you.
