Our College

A growing school in the heart of Bayswater.

Bayswater Secondary College is a growing co-educational school in the heart of Bayswater, set on an attractive and spacious site that adjoins the picturesque Dandenong Creek Trail and is easily accessible by bus and rail public transport.

We value Honesty, Excellence, Acceptance, Respect and Teamwork (H.E.A.R.T), priding ourselves on our ability to offer a wide range of educational opportunities to all our students in a small setting and create bespoke pathways to support all learners to achieve excellence in their learning journey.

One of the greatest benefits of being a smaller school is that we know each student individually, both as a learner and as a young person.  We use this strength to work to ensure every learner is well-supported to grow and develop throughout their years of secondary schooling.  This approach to our students will continue to grow and expand as we do.

The College was recognised as one of the Top 10 Most Improved Schools for VCE results in 2020 and continued to achieve excellence in 2021, with the highest VCE results in the history of the College.  We continue to work to provide tailored Senior School pathways for all students through quality vocational and academic programs that ensure the perfect path, and level of support for every individual.

We are currently working as part of the Bayswater Education Plan along with Bayswater Primary School, Bayswater South Primary School, Bayswater West Primary School and Bayswater North Primary School to drive quality educational outcomes for all students in the Bayswater area.

The College is in the process of putting $12.4 million in State Government funding for the much-needed redevelopment of our classroom spaces, with the process to appoint a builder currently underway.  When construction commences later this year, we will see our current buildings replaced with new state-of-the-art learning facilities that will allow our students to thrive.
