Headmaster's Welcome - Mr Greg Wain
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.
TSS is a member of the Great Public Schools’ Association of Queensland (GPS) and
it is the only boys’ school and boys’ boarding school on the Gold Coast. The GPS
Association officially commenced in 1918 and was brought about to control the
sporting programs of the nine Great Public Schools. Some of the objectives of
the association is to promote and conduct various forms of activities between
member schools with a view to fostering a spirit of fellowship, sound
educational practice and mutual support and assistance among schools; to promote
the welfare and best interests of the Great Public Schools of Queensland; and to
contribute and influence the formulation and advancement of educational policy
Renowned for our balanced and holistic approach to boys’ education, we recognise
that boys think and learn differently from girls. 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.
TSS students perform better academically when they are involved in cultural and
sporting activities. As a result, they are able to learn better time management
skills and organisational skills.
