Master Plan

IJʿ is passionate about providing a learning environment that inspires its students. The 100-year-old grounds and facilities have been carefully and respectfully enhanced to not only cater to the increasing school population but to ensure they promote a desire for educational excellence.

The IJʿ Masterplan 2020+ Designing for the Future is the renewed Masterplan future-proofing the facilities and resources of the School.

Stuartholme will undertake the delivery of this Masterplan as a phased approach and the below highlights some of the major works completed, in progress, and planned.

The School has successfully applied to the Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning (DSDILGP) seeking endorsement for a Ministerial Infrastructure Designation (MID) to improve the learning facilities for our students over time.

The MID was approved in September 2023 for new buildings and works on the Main Campus including the new Junior School Precinct and Freer Site Development as identified in the IJʿ Masterplan 2020+ Designing for the Future.
