School Overview

Aveley Secondary College is committed to an ethic of excellence. We prepare students to have 21st century skills of critical thinking, collaboration and creativity. We provide a highly engaging curriculum with a focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. We are committed to developing a full suite of extra-curricular programs including a range of specialist sports to take advantage of our proximity to the outstanding facilities in the community.

The college opened in 2018 with an inaugural enrolment of 260 year 7 students and will continue growing until 2023 when it will have 1500 students. Our state of the art facilities includes a commercial kitchen, cutting-edge technology in general and specialist classrooms, outstanding sporting facilities and a dedicated Education Support Hub for eligible students. Our stage two build will include a spectacular performing and visual arts building as well as a senior learning community with a lecture theatre.

We focus on developing the whole child academically, socially and emotionally. Our students are engaged with the local community and the contemporary world with a strong sense of global citizenship. There are strong pathways of academic excellence and vocational education. We are responsive to the academic needs of our students, delivering targeted intervention and extension programs. Diverse course offerings will be available to students as they progress through the college. In senior school there will be ATAR, general courses and certificates.

At the core of our teaching practices is explicit direct instruction. This is an evidence-based practice comprising daily review, lesson design and delivery that promotes academic engagement and makes students accountable. Key components include clear learning intentions, success criteria, checking for understanding, guided and independent practice in a structured format.

Our professional learning community is based on the belief that every child matters and is dedicated to the principle that every child deserves to succeed. We place a high value on the power of professional collaboration with teachers creating a dynamic culture of continuous improvement with a focus on results.
