Rothwell Campus

Located on the Redcliffe Peninsula, our Rothwell Campus is a co-educational secondary school, catering for students from Year 7 to Year 12.

ϳԹ Rothwell has a proud history spanning over 40 years, with exceptional school facilities, modern learning technologies, and extensive academic and extracurricular opportunities. These include school sports, vocational training, performing arts and robotics programs.

Students travel from across Moreton Bay and North Brisbane to attend ϳԹ Rothwell, using the college's privately owned bus fleet.



At ϳԹ we believe that each child should be given the opportunity to discover who they are and what they love doing. We know that not everyone is a scholar or good with their hands or on the sports field or dance floor. We do know, however, that everyone is good at something. Our role is to help them uncover this.

The ϳԹ Curriculum aims to build confident and independent learners with our student-centered learning programs. Our approach goes beyond the standard Australian Curriculum and offers students countless opportunities to discover their own gifts and talents. 

All students at ϳԹ study a core curriculum of English, Science, Mathematics, Physical Education, Outdoor Education, Chpale and Christian Studies. Every ϳԹ student will also have the opportunity to take part in specialised learning areas, such as our robotics programperforming arts program and sporting program. Students can choose to continue these through high school as elective subjects.  This large range of subject offerings is very popular with ϳԹ students and their families.

Our curriculum also offers Learning Enhancement opportunities, including accelerated programs for advanced learners, gifted and talented programs and extensive learning support services for students. These programs span Year 7 to Year 12 and may be tailored to each student's needs.

In Year 10, students take part in our 4-week Googa Outdoor Education program where they explore independence, personal growth and Christian Faith. In their senior years, ϳԹ offers work experience, accredited VET courses and recognised university subjects to students. Each may complete these while still attending high schools - opening up early career pathways and employment opportunities. 

At ϳԹ, students are also encouraged to participate in the wide range of co-curricular opportunities, camps and events on and off campus. 



At ϳԹ Lutheran College, we strive to provide exceptional extracurricular activities to our students. Our co-curricular programs offer a diverse range of cultural, spiritual and academic opportunities that enrich student learning and grow Christian Faith. 

Our calendar is packed with activities for students, including school excursions, overseas tours, sporting competitions, schools clubs and fundraising events. These can be onsite at our Caboolture or Rothwell campuses, or involve national or international travel.

At ϳԹ, all year levels regularly run AWARE Days and other college-wide fundraisers, such as Shave for a Cure and the Kokoda Challenge. They also participate in service learning projects within the community, and run supportive student clubs such as Ladies Chill'n'Chat and Men's Shed. International Partnerships Programs enable students to travel overseas for service learning experiences in Indonesia, Cambodia and Uganda, or to take part in student exchange programs. In Australia, our performing arts programs put students on the stage with dance competitions, instrumental tours and school musicals.

Students also represent ϳԹ on the sporting field, with teams across local netball, cricket, basketball and touch football leagues. College-wide activities such as swimming carnival, cross country and triathlon allow students to represent their school house and collect points towards ϳԹ Lutheran College Sport awards.


Rothwell Facilities

Located on Brisbane Northside, ϳԹ Rothwell campus offers exceptional facilities and resources to promote student learning, spiritual growth and wellbeing.

The campus houses over 22 buildings, including air-conditioned classrooms, an amphitheatre and a massive Multipurpose Centre for performances, sporting activities and school events.

Students use purpose-built facilities in their learning, including dance studios, an on-campus restaurant and robotics labs to teach coding and programming. The library offers an expansive collection of physical and digital learning resources, along with free after school tutoring for students. 

The ϳԹ grounds offer an abundance of outdoor space. This includes 3 sporting fields, a swimming pool and numerous sports courts for Tennis, Basketball, Volleyball and Netball. At the front of the College, the ϳԹ Ministry precinct includes the ϳԹ Chapel, Chapel Cafe and offices for our School Chaplains and School Counsellors.

Recently, ϳԹ built the Trades Skills Centre with the assistance of Government Funding. It aims to address local skills shortages in the trades by enabling students to complete vocational training while at high school. ϳԹ offers students accredited VET courses in the areas of cabinetmaking, carpentry, general construction, engineering and metal fabrication. 


Leadership Team

ϳԹ is lead by a dedicated team of teachers, innovators and life-long learners. Through their hard-work and Christian faith, they strive to help each student to achieve their best at high school and beyond.


Rothwell Captains

Captains 2024: Getting to know our leaders

James Mayne:

What traits do you believe are most important to leadership, and why?
"I believe the ability to listen is the most important quality a leader should have. Listening and hearing all opinions and needs of a topic can create a more diverse solution, catering to the needs of everyone and the group. A sagacious leader must also possess a keen sense of empathy, allowing them to deeply understand and relate to the perspectives and emotions of their team members."

What do you want to accomplish in the role?
"In this role, I want to make sure every student feels valued and included. I'll work on programs to help everyone do their best in school. I also aim to improve communication so everyone's ideas and concerns are heard. Overall, I want to leave a positive impact on our school, making it a better place for all of us."

Issy Preece:

What inspired you to become a Captain?
"In my first year of high school as I was sitting in a crowd listening to the school captains speak at assembly, hearing their passion and drive for anything from sports carnivals to academics, I knew one day I would want to be there. As the years went by and it started nearing closer to nominating for the positions, I realised that the role was much more than speaking at events. It was being a part of the school spirit and sports, it was encouraging and supporting other students in every grade, it was being a role model to the Grade 7’s, inspiring the next generation. As I came to know and create bonds with past School Captains, I realised I still wanted to work for this role. My dream had only grown over the years as I learnt the true meaning of what is to be a College Captain."

What part of the ‘job’ are you most excited for in 2024?
"The most exciting part of being in the 2024 leadership team is creating longlisting connections, and new friendships resulting in growth as both a student and a leader. This will happen from new life experiences, meeting new people and being pushed out of my comfort zone, which will allow me to develop into a better leader, peer, and student."

Jack Perkins:

What do you want to accomplish in the role?
"I want to help create an environment at grace that allows people to be more honest with one another and in turn be truer to themselves, where talking to and having a laugh with people you may have never met becomes more prevalent. I also want to make the year more fun for everyone and make others smile a little bit more, whether that’s talking about funny stories with random students or making corny jokes at lunch."

What do you want to do after Year 12? 
"My dreams for after year 12 seem to keep changing on the daily. However, I am very interested in economics and finance and hope to have my own business later in life."

Isabelle Ferguson:

What traits do you believe are most important to leadership, and why?
"I think there are many traits important to leadership. Personally, I believe communication, integrity, and empathy are traits that I strive to embody through this leadership position. These few traits will a leader aid me in approaching a situation by being true to their morals while accommodating the body of people that the leader is representing."

How do you hope to be remembered by your fellow students?
"I hope to be remembered by students as friendly face within the community and someone they felt they can approach with any need no matter the scale."
