An independent, co-educational, non-denominational College situated in Redlands City committed to its basic philosophy of Love, Laughter and Learning, Sheldon College caters for children from 15 months of age through to Year 12. The College campus is located on 56 acres in a semi-rural setting in Taylor Road, Sheldon. The College was established in 1997 and is committed to providing a quality education for all students in a safe, secure learning environment which is characterised by high standards for both staff and students in the areas of dress and appearance, behaviour and individual scholarship and work habits.
Our mission is “to provide a quality educational experience in an environment which encourages and enables our students to succeed in a constantly changing world”. Our Student Exit Outcomes ensure our students leave our College equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to become self-directed learners; creative thinkers/problem solvers/innovators; effective communicators and collaborators; information and media literate; skilled in the core literacies; and possessing high self-esteem. Our College Code of Behaviour is based around the four C’s of, Courtesy, Consideration, Co-operation and Common Sense.
At Sheldon College we see education as a partnership between the home and the school and we believe fundamentally that "What the homes are, the schools will be, and what the two are the future will be".

Sheldon College welcomes any student who subscribes to the philosophy, ethos and Code of Conduct of the College. As partners in the educational process, it is also important to understand that students, parents and staff alike all have rights and responsibilities.
Our College aims to provide a warm, caring and supportive learning environment for all students whereby the 3 L's of teaching (Love, Laughter and Learning) are evident in every teacher-student interaction.
At Sheldon College ‘Every Day is Open Day’, and we welcome you and your child to see, hear and feel the Sheldon College difference. Please contact us to arrange a time for us to take you on a personalised tour.
Sheldon College recognises that education is really about educating the whole child.
As educators we are faced with the task of preparing our students, unlike any generation before, to think critically and analytically. We know that students are more successful when they experience a broad, challenging and engaging curriculum; when they feel connected to their school and wider community; when they are healthy physically and emotionally; and when schools are safe and trusting places.
