Bayswater Secondary College

Bayswater Secondary College is a co-educational school with a growing enrolment of approximately 190 students. We offer a flexible, academic curriculum, with broad subject choices and pathways, specialist learning areas, and wide range of extra-curricular activities. We celebrate cultural diversity through foreign language studies and international student program, commencing in 2019. It is important that the College, Knox and Maroondah communities, work closely to achieve – “the best education possible for all of our students”.
Our Junior School (Years 7-9) provides a supportive and caring environment to make the transition from primary to secondary school a successful and engaging experience. Our technology rich environment, underpinned by a global education program, aims to develop all students as independent, resilient and co-operative learners.
The Senior School (Years 10-12) focuses on the educational, career and personal development of young adults. Rigorous and academic learning opportunities provide pathways to post-secondary education, training and work experiences through VCE, VET and VCAL. In year 12, we offer pre-university entrance courses for students seeking early entrance into tertiary studies.
In 2018 we will complete our Select Entry Accelerated Learning (SEAL) program accreditation to offer a SEAL program in 2019 for students in Years 7-11. Further details will be available in February 2018. General Excellence and Academic scholarships will again be offered to high performing and aspirational students.
Our commitment to 21st Century learning allows all students to utilise various technologies in their learning, via the College’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program, which develops digital literacy and prepares students for the 24/7 world we live in.
The creative and performing arts provide many opportunities for students to explore and develop their creative potential. Excellent facilities and dedicated staff ensure that student expression, engagement and achievement are celebrated in drama, dance, music and creative arts.
Student leadership and expanded electives programs, including entrepreneurship and self-development courses, provide students with valuable learning opportunities to develop student voice to fulfil their potential, allowing them to successfully prepare for the future.
