The mission of Fairbairn College, a child focused, school-community partnership, is to prepare learners to be responsible members of an ever changing society by inspiring educational excellence in a secure, caring environment.


Fairbairn College has a proud record of academic achievement, sporting prowess, cultural excellence and grounding in traditional values.

As a traditional school, we place paramount emphasis on academic success. This is reflected in the importance placed on the classroom environment, streaming, home work, examinations and staff development.

A good balance of young and experienced staff ensures that all aspects of the school’s life remain energetic and vital, yet stable and consistent. These qualities impact also on the very strong sporting and cultural dimensions in which staff and learners are heavily involved, and with a high level of success.

We convey traditional values and attitudes through strict discipline, formal assemblies and high expectations. Staff expect no less from our learners in terms of punctuality, courtesy, attendance, dress and grooming, and work standards than an employer would.

Above all Fairbairn is a school that is enjoyed by learners, staff and the greater school community.
