All students are provided with a broad and rich learning experience that ensures a focus on academic excellence, personal growth and development and an enriching social experience that encourages active and responsible citizenship.
Within the learning centres, Information and Communications Technology is used to enhance understanding and assists students to develop as autonomous and reflective learners. Academic excellence comes from explicitly teaching our students how to think about world problems, themselves and others.
Our Senior School starts at Year 10. More than half of our Year 10 students begin VCE and / or VET studies. Our VCE program is broad, and students from Gisborne Secondary College go on to success at the University of Melbourne, Victoria University, La Trobe University, RMIT and all other Victorian Universities.
VET, VCAL and Apprenticeships
Many students finish at Gisborne Secondary College in Year 12 with multiple qualifications. Our VET and School-based Apprenticeship program is also supported by our VCAL qualification. The college runs VCAL at both Year 11 and Year 12.
Year 9 Learning Program
New in 2015, our Year 9 Learning Program will ensure engagement and opportunity for learners entering this unique Year Level.
