IES College

IES College is located in Spring Hill, Brisbane and has been preparing young people for university for more than twenty years. IES College is now an authorised IB World School, offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme to year 11 and 12 students.

Building on its proud reputation for delivering high-quality, innovative educational experiences, the expansion of IES’s educational programme makes IES College Brisbane’s only independent, co-educational, secular, not-for-profit school to exclusively deliver the internationally recognised IB Diploma Programme.

IES College’s fully refurbished inner city, vertical campus located at 495 Boundary St, Spring Hill, is a welcoming learning environment for students. Globally inspired, light-filled spaces for collaboration and socialising, quiet places for concentration and deep thinking, flexible Wi-Fi classrooms that can be transformed for purpose, a research learning centre at the hub of the school, STEM and art studios, performing arts space and more. The smaller boutique environment provides a personalised student experience, encouraging each student to reach their full potential, feel safe and supported. The college takes a holistic approach to teaching and learning; the students will simultaneously be challenged, engaged, supported, and nurtured. Furthermore, the IB Diploma Programme curriculum develops the whole student – balancing academic subjects with student led personal development opportunities in creative, action and service.

IB World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to improving the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high-quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

 Our teachers and professional staff are multicultural and have travelled the world. They understand diverse cultures and have a real grasp of what it means to be a world citizen.

Students will learn to collaborate, work in teams, and confidently communicate their ideas across cultures. They will learn to think critically and creatively as they embrace diversity with a global mindset. These concepts are at the very core of the IB Diploma Programme and will help students develop a broader life view, preparing them for success outside of the classroom.

In a world that is experiencing profound change, society needs more internationally minded people who are open and curious about the world and diverse cultures. The IB Diploma Programme at IES College will prepare culturally competent young people with the skills and values to create positive change in the world.

Full Scholarships for local students entering year 11 are available. 

Enrolment are now open for Year 11, 2022. Visit our website, come and say hello, or book a school visit at
