Welcome from the Principal

Blackheath & Thornburgh College has been an integral part of educating young people in North Queensland for over 100 years. Throughout this time we have fostered strong community foundations, outstanding co-curricular opportunities and invested in the future of the young people in our care.

Success differs for each individual but is founded in the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. BTC provides the ideal setting for students to realise their potential in an inclusive and supportive community, where we celebrate and support each individual on their journey toward success.

Our staff work closely with students and families to assist them to look beyond the classroom exploring the relevance of today’s learning in tomorrow’s world.

At BTC we offer weekly and term time boarding from Year 5 to Year 12. Our boarding facilities offer a secure and stable environment for your child. Let us be their home away from home.

We welcome you to book a tour and experience the BTC difference.
