It is advisable for families to contact local Secondary Colleges with regard to future school tours and information nights.
Below is some information regarding Glenroy Secondary College, which is the local designated school for a majority of our families
PLEASE NOTE: Some Secondary Colleges offer a SEAL Program which allow students from outside the zone to apply for enrolment.
Strathmore Secondary College also offer enrolment on Curriculum grounds, please see their website or give them a call.
We would ask families to be aware when applying for Secondary Colleges that some schools are strictly zoned and will not be offering placements unless you are in their zone (They will ask for proof of residence). These include Strathmore Secondary College and Buckley Park College. These schools do have a SEAL Program so you may apply via that program by contacting the school.
If you are applying for a zoned school which is outside your area, please put at least 2 or 3 school choices on your application.
GLENROY SECONDARY COLLEGE
For quite a long time now, Glenroy College has effectively educated students through their secondary years and achieved excellent final years results, including a range of exclusive scholarship recipients, in very old and well-worn buildings. While we acknowledge that buildings and facilities are not everything, they certainly help to create more positive perceptions in parents and encourages them to consider enrolling their child into schools with attractive and well-presented facilities.
We are really excited that Glenroy Secondary College will be significantly rebuilt over the course of 2020, with expected occupation of the new buildings in December/January 2020-21. This means that Year 7 students starting at Glenroy College in 2021 will be starting with brand new facilities, which will continue to be improved throughout their 6 years in secondary school.
Due to schools currently not being able to host parent tour groups through our facilities and to talk about our curriculum, support structures and leadership opportunities, our ability to share what we have to offer has largely been removed. This is of particular import at this time when families are choosing the secondary school for their child.
The Principal, Anne-Maree Crivelli can be contacted on 0488 993 004 by any parent who would like to discuss any queries they have about Glenroy College.
