Bayswater Secondary College is a co-educational school with a growing enrolment of approximately 190 students located on an appealing, spacious campus. 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 an international student program. The College works closely with both the Knox and Maroondah communities to achieve – “the best education outcomes possible for all of our students”.
Our Junior School (Years 7-9) provides a supportive, challenging and rigorous learning environment to make the transition from primary to secondary school a successful and engaging experience. Our technology rich classrooms, underpinned by a global education program, aim 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. A challenging and academic learning program helps to provide pathways to post-secondary education, training and work experiences through a wide range of educational electives and VCE, VET and VCAL programs.
In year 12, we also offer University entrance courses for highly competent and motivated students seeking early entrance into tertiary studies.
Our Select Entry Accelerated Learning (SEAL) program for students in Years 7-10 commences in 2019. This rigorous academic program will challenge and extend students who are looking for university pathways into the future. 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, along with technology 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, technology and creative arts.
Student leadership and our expanded elective programs, including entrepreneurship, STEM, project based learning and self-development courses, provide students with valuable learning opportunities to develop student voice and agency, allowing all students to successfully prepare for the future.
