School Profile

Maffra Secondary College is a regional college which caters for students in Years 7 - 12. Maffra is located two and half hours from Melbourne but within an hour’s drive of both the sea and the mountains. Our enrolment numbers sit at around 570 and a majority of our students travel to and from our school by bus from neighbouring towns. This number of students makes it small enough to allow positive relationships to be formed, but large enough to provide a wide range of options for our students. Our over-arching goals are to improve the learning and achievement of every student every day whilst creating a community of learners that are curious, empowered and engaged.

Maffra Secondary College provides learning and leadership opportunities for all students both within the school and the wider community. There is a focus on providing learning environments that engage, instil knowledge, skills, attitudes and values, empowering our school community to strive to be life-long learners. Our students are encouraged to be actively involved in their learning and through student voice and agency, contribute to not only the development of the curriculum but also to improving the school environment and working with neighbouring cluster schools and the local community.

Maffra Secondary College's cohesive, Professional Leadership Team focus is on working collaboratively to bring about improvement across the college. The college has a strong focus of working in teams to bring about change. Teaching and learning is supported by the 'Maffra Teaching and Learning Model' and all staff being aligned with a 'Professional Learning Community' (PLC). The two key areas of focus were based on 'Know our Learners' and literacy with an emphasis being placed on vocabulary. We believe that all students need to be challenged in order to improve and that mistakes with their learning are key to developing curious learners and activating students as owners of their own learning. Lesson plans which identify learning intentions and success criteria continue to be explicitly used in classrooms. The things that we value are aligned with our use of the School Wide Positive Behaviour Support framework where positive behaviour is explicitly taught and acknowledged. We were identified as a Lead School in 2020 for Respectful Relationships and this was reflected in our school curriculum and embedded in our expected behaviours for all members of our community.

In 2021 we launched the new school values to the students and the school community after a review in 2020. Our College Values: Respect, Learning, Community and Resilience which guide and underpin our expectations and behaviours for staff, students and our parent/carer community and we always strive to achieve the highest standard possible in these areas.

There is a broad range of opportunities and pathways offered in the senior school, including VCE, VET and VCAL, which caters for the diverse interests, needs and abilities of our student cohort. The staffing profile of Maffra Secondary College includes a principal and two assistant principals, 37.4 Effective Full Time (EFT) teachers, 25.5 EFT Education Support (ES) staff, including office administration staff, classroom support staff and other support staff.

Please note, hours of work are advertised at 22.28 hours per week, but are negotiable dependant on individual circumstances.
