Founded in 1901, The Southport School is an Anglican day and boarding school on the Gold Coast from Preschool to Year 12 with boarding available from Year 7.
With over 1500 students, TSS is renowned for our balanced and holistic approach to boys’ education. Cutting-edge educational practices include Leadership Development, Emotional Intelligence and Thinking Skills.
We also provide integrated programs of co-curricular and academic, with a low student-to-staff ratio. Students at TSS also participate in an extensive leadership development program, with students assuming a variety of leadership roles within the School.
The School’s facilities are extensive and impressive, providing for every pertinent academic, sporting, cultural and social aspect of a boy’s education and development in the fullest sense. At first glance it’s obvious the TSS campus ranks as one of the finest and most unique in the country. The serene and welcoming site on the banks of the Gold Coast’s Nerang River immediately sets it apart, while the blend of grand heritage buildings and their modern counterparts and extensive facilities projects a reassuring ambience of proud tradition mingled with contemporary relevance.
"An education at The Southport School does not simply focus on academic scores but frames the social and emotional development of the boy as essential to his development as a whole person."
