Welcome to Calamvale Special School

Our school supports students with special needs from prep age through to year 12 (5-17 years old). We are located at Nottinghan Road, Calamvale (Southside of Brisbane). Our school opened in January 1985, with an opening enrolment of 45 students.  Since its inception the school has tripled in size over the past 30 years, with a current enrolment of 139 students.

We are able to offer our students wonderful programs tailored to meet their individual needs. All classrooms in the school are air-conditioned, and have an interactive whiteboard to enhance student learning and to promote the use of technology.

We are fortunate to have great facilities including our own swimming pool. Our goal is to develop student independence through providing a diverse learning environment which is: ​rich in curriculum, challenging, safe and supportive, happy and fun. We strive to create an environment that fosters respect, independence, communication and the development of high self-esteem.

I invite you to explore the school's website and trust that you find it informative and useful.​
