Our campus and facilities

22-hectare campus
in the heart of Brisbane

Churchie is located on a spacious 22-hectare campus located in the heart of Brisbane, only minutes from the CBD. Students enjoy the convenience of all academic and sporting facilities located on, or close to, the main campus as well as an abundance of natural green spaces providing health and wellbeing benefits.

Learning spaces

Churchie places a high priority on developing and improving facilities to ensure we continue to deliver world-class learning environments for our students.

Our teaching and learning spaces have been developed based on research-led design to maximise student engagement and facilitate a more active, responsive and personalised approach to learning.


The Centenary Library

The Centenary Library brings together seven Churchie departments (Senior School Library, Student Services, Churchie IT, Learning Support, Mawson House, Churchie Archives and a research centre). The tertiary-inspired library environment integrates key academic and pastoral services and seeks to nurture aspects of Churchie’s four tenets, becoming the heart of school life. 

The array of different learning spaces across The Centenary Library seeks to promote creative, flexible and effective approaches to thinking and learning. Students may undertake and partake in a range of activities and communities of learning that extend from individuals through to mixed classes and ages.

Features of The Centenary Library include:

  • six classrooms, 10 small group/study rooms, two covered outdoor learning environments and two video conference rooms
  • over 80 individual/small group learning places
  • 250-seat lecture theatre
  • The Arches café
  • extended opening hours
  • 23 staff across seven departments.

Churchie Research Centre

The Churchie Research Centre, located in The Centenary Library, enhances student learning by supporting the continual professional learning and development for our teachers. The centre focuses on the translation of current theory to evidence-based practice through sustained professional learning.

The Churchie Research Centre pursues partnerships that enhance the knowledge, practice and capabilities of Churchie’s teachers. Its central focus is applied educational research through translating current and emergent theory into practice while evaluating the subsequent impact on both teachers and students. This acknowledges the fundamental role that teachers play in affecting improved educational outcomes for all our students.

The research centre continues to drive change through a range of support services for the Churchie and wider communities through centralising, coordinating and enhancing the current research initiatives with university partners.

A Learner’s Toolkit

Developed by the Churchie Research Centre (CRC) in partnership with three leading universities, A Learner’s Toolkit is the first open-access programme in Australia—and one of only a few in the world—that helps secondary students become more efficient in learning and studying to achieve success throughout their secondary schooling and beyond.

JB Adams Library

The JB Adams Library is a flexible, resource-rich learning space that hosts a variety of exciting learning experiences throughout the year for boys in Reception to Year 6.

Classroom teachers work collaboratively with teacher librarians within this space to enhance curriculum delivery and to support student learning experiences.  The JB Adams Library provides students with the opportunity to participate in a range of inspirational and entertaining events, including author visits, National Simultaneous Storytime, Book Week, literature and writing festivals, Premier’s Reading Challenge and Indigenous Literacy Foundation events.
