About the PMSA

The PMSA – Presbyterian and Methodist Schools Association – owns four of Queensland’s well-known independent schools with students from Prep to Year 12: Brisbane Boys' College, Clayfield College, Somerville House and Sunshine Coast Grammar School. At each school, students are encouraged and supported to achieve their best academically, spiritually and in co-curricular activities.


Established in 1918, the PMSA is a joint mission of the Uniting Church of Australia, Queensland Synod and the Presbyterian Church of Queensland. One hundred years on, the PMSA plays a vital role in setting the direction of these outstanding schools and is the connecting link between the schools and the two churches. 


Launching a new Strategic Plan for 2019 onwards, the PMSA envisions a future where education is valued as a central pillar of society and where Christian independent education provides the finest opportunities and outcomes for future citizens of the world.


To govern the four schools, the PMSA Board is supported by three standing committees, a School Council at each school and the PMSA corporate office.
