    Default Secular schools in Bris

    I'm trying to find a secular private school in Brisbane, with great difficulty!

    Someone suggested Sheldon College, however their philosophy states a "strong Christian ethos".

    There is a Montessori, however I'm not sure that it is right for us (we are attending an intro type day to look into it further).

    Any suggestions?

    think there is a Brisbane independent school but think that's about it ?? most have religion of some type !!

    I know you said Montessori wasn't very you but maybe Steiner or Reggio Emilia type ones ?

    Not for me and I know hardly anything about it, but what about Steiner?

    If it weren't for the cost, Sheldon would be our first choice!

    Good luck.

    I am thinking Brisbane Independent School at Pullenvale for my son (due to his personality), but I don't know if it would suit every child, and it's also out of the way unless you are in that area of Brisbane.

    Thanks all.

    I have tried that website, but the secular schools weren't really secular . It seems that most seem to have *some* sort of religious affiliation.

    I'm not 100% on Steiner for him. I will have a look into the independent school, thanks
