Our college


Redlynch State College is a Prep to Year 12 college comprising of two campuses.

Prep to Year 6 students attend our junior campus, working with experienced staff in modern air conditioned facilities, providing strong foundations in literacy and numeracy in a secure and supportive environment.

Our senior campus hosts the junior secondary (year seven to nine) and senior secondary phase (year ten to twelve) of learning, with experience staff  and state of the art facilities supporting  a curriculum that leads to a successful transition for all students to further education, training or employment upon graduating in Year 12.

In this section of the website you can learn more about the school’s vision and values, links to our key rules and policies and college operating hours.

"We would like to thank the whole Redlynch State College team on the wonderful support, education and positive environment that you provided for Auna.  The opportunities that were given to him, courtesy of the teachers and management staff, were phenomenal.  The educational extra-curricular activities (science programs etc), the sporting opportunities (futsal trips etc) and outdoor rec activities (World Challenge etc) were amazing and we are forever grateful for this.  We are extremely happy that he went to Redlynch State and we believe Auna is too".

"Jack started Redlynch State College in Preschool and since the beginning he had a love of learning.  Jack's teachers throughout the years gave him the opportunity to reach his goals at every stage of his learning, they gave him encouragement to try new things and extend himself.  This really inspired Jack to do well.  Jack had such a solid foundation going into, and all throughout Year 12 because of his supportive teachers and friends who knew his goals and helped him to achieve his best.  A sincere thank you to all the teachers, staff and friends that were part of the journey".

"Our 5 girls have settled in fantastically since enrolling in May, the school has certainly lived up to it's reputation of being one of the best in Cairns- we've never understood why people pay a fortune for private education when we have state schools of such a high calibre available.

My husband and I would have no hesitation in recommending the school to other families and in general, the Redlynch community as a whole, we specifically moved into the catchment area because of the school, but we are delighted with the friendly neighbourhood-bonus!

The courteous professional manner that we have found throughout our dealings with all staff so far.

The kids were made to feel welcome in all their classes and have made good friends already. The teachers (What a great bunch) have been very good at communicating class expectations and routines.

Coming from a school that had clearly defined guidelines about behaviour and expectations, the girls easily assimilated into the very similar culture at Redlynch"

"I am a teacher here at RSC and my husband and I chose to have our son attend this school too. This decision was not just based on convenience, but because our College has it all; a committed and passionate staff team, friendly and welcoming feeling which permeates everything we do.  It's all about the kids at Redlynch and that's what I wanted for my own son".

Ailsa Connor, Parent and Teacher


"We have been at RSC for 4 years and have been very happy with the education the children have received and the learning opportunities available. The College is very welcoming and all staff have been really approachable with any issues. Lots of new buildings and facilities makes for a great learning environment".
