The Bayview Campus is a purpose built middle year’s facility that is situated on the waterfront, adjacent to the Jawbone Marine Sanctuary. The spacious surroundings and proximity to the bay provides a special and unique home for our Year 7 to 9 students to experience an environmentally rich curriculum. We have a wonderful platform to provide the depth and breadth of learning opportunities for every student. We pride ourselves as a school community that recognises young people as individual learners and the need for an individualised educational experience that empowers achievement and growth for all. We have a dynamic learning culture that is driven by dedicated and professional teachers that is underpinned by best practice research, supported through consistent use of our instructional model “SIMPLE” and the use of data to inform our teaching.
Our middle year’s curriculum philosophy aims to captivate young minds while optimising diversity and the skilled fundamentals essential for lifelong learning. The depth and breadth of our core curriculum is matched impeccably by our wide ranging elective program at Years 8 and 9. Year 9 students partake in the Immersion Program. This program provides a student centered, vibrant and innovative curriculum where students are taught to be 21st Century thinkers, they develop creative solutions to local and global issues and learn by experience and cultivate individual growth through exploration, collaboration and practical application.

Our Pasco Campus is located adjacent to the Williamstown Beach Railway Station, and caters for students in Year 10, 11 and 12. The Pasco Campus has a long history as a secondary school in the City of Williamstown, and more recently in the Hobson Bay City Council. The oldest building dates from 1867 and the most recent addition is our new Theatre opened in April 2017. This variety in architectural styles makes the campus visually interesting for students and allows us to create a mature learning environment that successfully meets the needs of our senior students.
Our focus on learning is passionately directed toward successfully completing the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). This provides pathways for our students into employment, apprenticeships, technical and further education, or, in most cases, university. Our teachers specialise in their subject areas and follow a deliberate and targeted approach to promoting learning in their subjects for all students. They recognise that positive relationships with their students is vital for effective learning, and encourage students to ask questions in and out of the classroom. Our teachers use real time learning tools to provide relevant resources and collaborative spaces. We encourage our teachers to be examination assessors for the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) in order to extend their field of expertise for their subject. Our teachers focus on the point of learning need for each student and develop a differentiated strategy to their teaching of every child.
Our campus continues to ensure our students have a significant voice. Students lead our assemblies, organise musical performances at lunchtime, invite and listen to visiting speakers, organise and manage awareness weeks, and organise fund-raising events for their chosen charities. Our Year 12 School Captains represent the school at local events, lead tours of the school for visiting dignities, and are active in articulating the views of students to the Campus Principal.
