Welcome to St Thomas More College, Sunnybank.  We are a fai​th learning community of over 1100 students from over 858 local and international families.  Our community mantra is: “Do More. Be More".

As a Catholic co-educational secondary College, we are proud to be a Brisbane Catholic Education School and have access to leading educational experts and research to support our educational program.

We are educating the leaders of tomorrow, for a future not yet imagined, for careers not yet created, and for a world of work where being entrepreneurial and adaptable in the freelance economy is just as important as traditional career pathways.

Along with teaching students to be highly literate, we are educating students in digital skills, problem-solving, creativity, critical thinking, communication, innovation, and collaboration - the essential skills of a 21st-century workplace and a 21st-century life. Students are cared for and nurtured academically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially.

The professional teaching team at the College number over 130 teachers and support staff. Teachers focus on excellent teaching and learning and delivering an impressive range of co-curricular activities and programs in sport, culture, the arts, and learning extension programs. Specialist and supported learning is available to all students.

The goal of our educators is to ensure students enjoy learning the way they learn best, which results in an educated and well-balanced individual, steady on their chosen pathway to work, further training, or tertiary study and to enjoying a fulfilling life.

Our vision is to continue to be an education hub for the local community for not only education, but for sport, the arts, and local community events.

When you join our College family, you'll immediately feel welcomed. It is a community where a strong connection between staff, students, and families is lived every day. 

It is our view that parents are integral to the successful learning outcomes of their children. We warmly welcome parents and family to the campus to support student learning in any way they can. We created the Thomas More Cafe as a central hub for parents, teachers and students to meet during the school week.

Our next Visitors' Day will be Tuesday 26 March 2024​. I invite you to attend and to register with our enrolments team, CLICK HERE or ​learn more by viewing the ​STMC FAST FACTS.pdf

Kind regards,

Mr Les Conroy​
