Bayside P-12 College has campuses in Williamstown, Newport and Altona North catering for students from prep to Year 12. Our culture is one of ambition and excellence in an inclusive and innovative learning environment.
Why our junior school?
Located at the Altona North Campus we cater for students in Prep to Year 6. What makes Bayside Junior School different to others in the area is the access our students have to specialist facilities and specialist teachers in Science, Technology, Performing Arts and PE.
“I love Science because I get to work in a real science lab” Shan – Year 3
Students, parents and teachers often talk about the sheer joy of learning and teaching that takes place in our state of the art, technology rich, learning environments.
In our Junior School we: take the time to get to know our children and in partnership with parents develop an understanding of their strengths and needs; place an emphasis on literacy and numeracy; expect our parents to be actively involved in their child’s learning; offer a wonderful transition into middle school.
“The continuity of care for our children from prep through to the senior school has been wonderful” Laura parent of 5 students – Prep through to Year 10
Why our Middle School?
We cater for students from Years 7 to 9. All students participate in the Voyager Program. This program focuses on: explicitly teaching students how to learn and challenging them to take responsibility for their own learning; providing opportunities for leadership; and fostering in each child the ability to question, research, analyse and apply knowledge so that they can contribute as responsible world citizens.
There are two middle schools at Bayside. One based at the Altona North Campus and the other at the Williamstown Campus. The Bayside Middle School Program has been designed to: recognise and provide for the learning needs of middle school students; emphasise traditional academic studies; present a range of clear pathways into our senior campus (Paisley) and beyond.
“When I started in Year 7 I didn’t know anybody. That didn’t last long! I just love it here” Emily – Year 9 student
We offer three middle school pathways:
Traditional Program – traditional academic studies that run in conjunction with the Voyager Program
Select Entry – the Academic Achievers Program is designed to meet the needs of highly capable students
Elite Tennis (Williamstown Campus) – Students undertake an academic program of approximately 31 hours per fortnight, and another 28 hours “on court” with an emphasis on coaching, technique, tactics and competition.
Why our Senior School?
The School has been completely rebuilt and caters for students in Years 10 through to 12. The staff work with students and families to prepare for exciting futures beyond school. In support of this we: focus on excellence and have high expectations of students no matter what they aspire to. “Our students graduate to become doctors, carpenters, lawyers and nurses” Milan –Campus Principal; offer VCE, VET and VCAL courses through a diverse and extensive range of curriculum offerings “from physics and philosophy through to the performing arts” Natalie – Teacher; provide the opportunity for students to fast track VCE studies in Year 10; learn in state of the art learning environments; participate in a Pastoral Care Program that includes Year 11 and 12 Tutorials – designed to support students in their final two years of school, particularly in the area of study skills; have access to a dedicated careers pathways team who work with students and parents in preparing for life beyond school
“My three children graduated from Bayside as confident young people excited about moving on to their life at university” Sharyn – former parent
