At Bayswater Secondary College, our students are at the centre of everything we do, and our Teaching & Learning Program is no different. We recognise the central role of teachers in facilitating a quality learning program through which all students can achieve excellence.
Our staff work continually to develop, review and improve our learning programs to ensure that all students have access to a highly engaging learning experience with the right level of challenge to optimise their learning growth.
Our instructional model focuses on quality, differentiated instruction that targets the point of need for our students, using a range of High Impact Teaching Strategies to support and challenge our community of learners.
We focus on providing quality differentiated instruction through the implementation of our Teaching and Learning model so that every student in every class is able to engage in a learning experience at a level that supports and extends them in the development of knowledge, skills and understanding in a variety of areas, as well as supporting parents and carers as partners in their student’s education.
Flexibility in the structure of the program will allow students to learn according to their individual learning needs and learning style. Parents will be provided with a copy of the plan and the suggested strategies to assist the child’s development. Skill development in the areas of literacy and numeracy will be the focus of the program.
Bayswater Secondary College promotes excellence in both vocational and academic pathways, ensuring students develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to thrive both during and after their Senior years of schooling. There are two types of programs available to students at our Bayswater Secondary College.
Our SEAL program offers talented students the opportunity to condense their Year 7-10 curriculum into only three years, allowing the remaining three years to complete their VCE education. SEAL program students will also have exciting opportunities and to begin early University entrance courses.
Our Vocational Acceleration program offers students in Year 10 the opportunity for early entry to VET and Structured Workplace Learning programs available through the new VCE Vocational Major Senior Certificate.
We have a once in a generation chance to develop a school which is truly best for young people, today and in the future. Free from any sense of what we’ve always done, Bayswater Secondary College looks to the future and we do that in partnership with our students. This is our school and we develop it together.
