Location Profile

Yarra Hills Secondary College is a multi-campus college of approximately 700 students across two campuses in the Mooroolbark/Kilsyth and Mount Evelyn districts of outer eastern Melbourne. It is part of the North East Victoria Region (NEVR) of DET.

Yarra Hills organises its student management and administration on the basic structure of its two campuses, one of which is Year 7 - 10 and Year 11/12 VCE Vocational Major (VM) only and one which has Year 7-10 and Year 11/12 VCE and VCE/VM educational pathways.

With strong enrolments over recent years and a solid status within the local community, Yarra Hills anticipates stability and growth. Our programs build strong foundations that provide a solid basis for future success by emphasising literacy and numeracy and embedding information and communication technologies across all subjects within the curriculum. A solid core curriculum is supported by an extensive elective program that recognises students’ different needs and talents and supports individual learning and career pathways. All year ten students can participate in an extension program into VCE studies, assisting in maximising tertiary entrance scores. A broad and engaging curriculum has led to a high proportion of our students achieving successful academic pathways to university or TAFE through VCE or alternately into vocational pathways through VET and VCE Vocational Major (VM), as well as school-based apprenticeships and training (SBATs) and the DET HeadStart Program. The college co-curricular program includes outstanding sports, camps, performing arts, visual arts and outdoor education programs, and highly regarded instrumental music.

The school has 103.93 equivalent full-time staff: 4 Principal class, 68 Teachers and 33 Education Support Staff.

As the school is a multi-campus, the successful applicant may be required to work across both campuses.
