TSS is a member of the Great Public Schools’ Association of Queensland (GPS) and it is the only boys’ school and boys’ boarding school on the Gold Coast. The GPS Association officially commenced in 1918 and was brought about to control the sporting programs of the nine Great Public Schools. Some of the objectives of the association is to promote and conduct various forms of activities between member schools with a view to fostering a spirit of fellowship, sound educational practice and mutual support and assistance among schools; to promote the welfare and best interests of the Great Public Schools of Queensland; and to contribute and influence the formulation and advancement of educational policy in Queensland.
Renowned for our balanced and holistic approach to boys’ education, we recognise that boys think and learn differently from girls. Cutting-edge educational practices include Leadership Development, Emotional Intelligence and Thinking Skills. We also provide integrated programs of co-curricular and academic, with a low student-to-staff ratio. Students at TSS also participate in an extensive leadership development program, with students assuming a variety of leadership roles within the School.
TSS students perform better academically when they are involved in cultural and sporting activities. As a result, they are able to learn better time management skills and organisational skills.
