Earnshaw State College is the only P-12 college in the Brisbane North Education District.  Located in the suburb of Banyo in north east Brisbane, Earnshaw has a short history as a College but a long history in Nudgee State School established in 1876 and Banyo State High School which began in 1954 and from which we have developed.

The College is organised around three Sub Schools that are designed to reflect the developmental stages in the school life of the child.  With a total College population of 750, the Sub-School structure has the added advantage of small size so that relationships between staff and students are close and students can receive highly individualised support.

Our major objective over the next twelve months is to focus on students and their learning.  In order to achieve this objective, we have developed a strategic Curriculum Framework to ensure a seamless progression from Pre-School through Year 12, a Key Learning Area delivery model to align staff expertise with curriculum, and realigned the College day to ensure that prime learning time is interruption free.

Our new and refurbished facilities, high level of resourcing and dedicated staff give Earnshaw an educational edge.
