We have a saying at Lindisfarne: “If we want students to do remarkable things, we must first give them remarkable things to do.”
With a holistic approach to education, underpinned by our Anglican ethos, our students, parents and staff share a clear set of high-level expectations for achievement, character development and performance. It’s not about being the best; it’s about doing their best. We help our students define their potential, set individual goals and support them to achieve these milestones.
Our aim is for Lindisfarne graduates to be collaborative problem-solvers who are equipped, enabled and empowered academically and emotionally to assume the responsibility for making a positive contribution to the world. We achieve this by setting high standards for student involvement and success in rich structured and challenging academic, artistic, sporting and co-curricular programs.
Each student journey is unique as they move through the Junior, Middle and Senior Schools. These experiences help support learning and achievement as our students undertake age-appropriate academic, co-curricular, wellbeing and pastoral care opportunities.
We share an understanding of where the School is heading, a purposeful enthusiasm for learning and values which apply to our whole community.
Values, culture and community
At Lindisfarne, we share an understanding of where the School is heading, a purposeful enthusiasm for learning and values which apply to our whole community.
Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School is a high-quality, independent, Anglican, co-educational grammar school that serves the southern Gold Coast, Tweed Coast and northern New South Wales. We seek to provide the distinctive identity, relationships, learning and leadership that support our staff and families to work together to meet our high expectations for the achievement and holistic development of our students in our local, national and international communities.
Within our Anglican tradition, each member of our community is nurtured in our values of:
We cultivate learning through relationships, expert teaching, educational research and innovation that focus on:
Faith occupies the space in life between our “now” and our “not yet”. Everyone has faith… in something. The process of Faith Formation at Lindisfarne invites students into learning about a process of exploration and transformation, and opens a conversation and experience which has the potential for lifelong learning.
Our approach is invitational rather than obligatory. Whilst biblical wisdom guides each facet of this new structure, it is presented in ways which have the potential to enhance the culture of the School rather than simply hearing about ideologies. Our students learn that it is not about getting the “right belief” or the “right thoughts”; it is about a different mode of being and a different way of life.
In Junior School, we look at the great stories of faith such as Adam and Eve, Noah and the Ark, Jesus feeding the 5,000 and the Rainbow Serpent.
In Middle School, we blend the great stories of faith with life experience; students develop their reasoning skills through critical thinking and responding to moral and ethical challenges.
In Senior School, students focus on a process of self-awareness and self-reflection as they attempt to answer the important questions: “who am I?” and “what do I have to give?” Through answering these questions, students develop an altruistic approach to community living in service to others.
A unique location
Nestled in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, we offer opportunities few other schools in the world can match.
Our Mahers Lane Campus (incorporating Middle and Senior Schools and administration) is semi-rural. This gives us an appreciation for the land, what it can do for us and how we need to respect it for our future. This elevated campus has ocean views and provides a calm outlook for learning. Being only 20 minutes from some of the world’s best beaches, the surf allows our students the opportunity to combine co-curricular sport and other activities with their more mainstream studies. From the coast to the mountains, we make the best use of the natural environment we are blessed to call home.
Our Water Sports and Marine Studies Centre in the natural mangrove waters of Cudgen Creek is 20 minute’s travel from both campuses. The setting is serene and our plans for this facility are remarkable.
Not that we want to be cut off from the benefits of the city.
We have an international airport virtually on our doorstep. This makes it easy for our students to travel both for school and family purposes.
And with three universities within easy reach, our school has developed strong post-Lindisfarne opportunities for our graduates. As they say, location is everything!
