Principal's Welcome
 
Welcome to Brighton Secondary College.
 
We are a co-educational open entry government secondary college catering for over 1200 students from Years 7 - 12. Established in 1955, Brighton Secondary College is well regarded in the local Bayside community as a prestigious, family-oriented school.
 
We offer a diverse range of academic and creative subjects to meet the needs of our students. We have a well-resourced library, drama centre, performing arts centre, careers room, media centre, sports stadium and hockey/tennis field. 

In 2014 we are pleased to be enjoying our new Science, Arts and Technology wing, appropriately named the da Vinci Centre. Stage one of our Building Project was completed with the extension of our 2010 built VCE Centre, which includes modern study areas and classrooms for our senior students. Stage two and three have now recently been completed with our new $5 million Science facility, and our $1.5 million Arts and Technology facilities.  We are about to move into the design and building of our North wing to complete the full update of the College. This $8 million redevelopment was announced in the May 2014 State Budget.
 
The College is an accredited provider of the Select Entry Accelerated Learning (SEAL) Program for high achieving students. Our VCE results and tertiary entrance offers are consistently well above the State average. Our College dux, who also was our College Captain and a SEAL student, for 2013 scored an ATAR of 99.8.
 
There are many opportunities for students to get involved in our extensive co-curricular program - the annual musical production and House Chorals Festival, inter school Debating, extensive sporting competitions, the Duke of Edinburgh program, World Challenge Program and overseas tours to Japan (sister school) and France.
 
As Principal of this College I have an expectation that students will meet the three challenges I set for them:
  • Do your best in every endeavour.
  • Take advantage of every program and opportunity offered.
  • Treat every member of our BSC family with respect.

Julie Podbury
Principal
