Providing a caring, challenging, stimulating educational experience which equips students for lifelong learning

Welcome to Bairnsdale Secondary College

Bairnsdale Secondary College remains the largest provider of education in the East Gippsland Network of Schools, with approximately 989 students enrolled.
There are three Learning Hubs operating, Wargomerrin is the Year 7 Hub, Wurrin is for Year 8 and 9 and Malgobila is for Years 10, 11 and 12, each Hub has
a welfare and student management team. 

The College is proud to be a major provider of VCE, VET and VCAL certificates in Bairnsdale. We provide the curriculum benefits of a large school, providing a broad range of subjects that students can choose from, together with the developmental benefits of a smaller school, with our multi-hub operating structure.

There are a further 35 senior VCAL students at the Changing Lanes site, an alternative program off-campus. We operate a Deaf Program for students, where AUSLAN is their first language. Approximately half of the student population resides within the township of Bairnsdale, with the remainder travelling from surrounding areas in East Gippsland.

The College is an active member of the East Gippsland Network of Schools, which has a strong focus on improving student outcomes through building leadership capacity, enhancing teacher practice and implementing programs based on sound research.

The individuality of students is valued and trusting relationships are formed between staff and students. Our teaching and learning programs focus on student achievement and excellence. We cater for the diverse needs of our College community with a wide range of curriculum, enrichment and extension programs. We aim to develop effective communication and lifelong learning skills, which will enable our students to contribute to and take their place in a changing world.
