2015 Subject Charges and Fees
In the next few weeks, re-enrolment packs will be sent home with students.  In 2015 we are providing parents with the option of payment in full or payment through set instalments. You will be able to select your preferred option on the subject charges re-enrolment sheets that will be sent home at the end of October- early November.
Families will receive an individual statement showing the amount owing for each student, any outstanding credits for sale of second-hand goods and uniforms will be applied at this time, to reduce the 2015 charges.
 
EMA Changes
As we advised last year, there are significant changes to EMA for 2015. A letter from the President of School Council was sent out to all parents through Compass last week explaining the changes.  If you require a copy of this letter, please refer to your Compass portal. Please feel free to contact the College Registrar, Mrs Jodie Geri to discuss your individual circumstances.
 
Netbook Changes
There has been a significant change in the netbook program for 2015, with funding withdrawn by the government for the one-to-one program we embraced and implemented at the College. We are in the process of finalising a new program, and will be providing full information as soon as possible.
The changes may affect those students who will be in Year 10 (not Year 10 SEAL) and 12 in 2015; if students and parents opt into the program to purchase or lease a new netbook.
 
 
Music Program
Emails have been sent to families with students currently enrolled in the Instrumental Music Program. Re-enrolment forms are due back at the General Office by 31st October 2014.  If you are interested in your child learning an instrument in 2015 please click here for a new enrolment form and click here for the re-enrolment.
 
 
Split Family Billing
We are able to cater for split family billing. We require the consent of both families to make a change to the billing structure. If your family circumstances have changed and you would like to split the subject charges and any applicable camps, please click here for a Split Billing Authorisation Form.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
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.
