Location Profile

Keilor Downs College is a large single campus secondary school of approximately 1300 students, situated on the north-western edge of suburban Melbourne.  Students and staff reflect the many different cultural backgrounds present within the local community. 

The School’s Strategic Plan (SSP) 2020 -2023 prioritises “Maximising the achievement and learning growth of every student, particularly in literacy and numeracy”, “Improving student learning engagement and learner agency” and  “Improving the social and emotional engagement and wellbeing of every student”.

Keilor Downs College has a strong record of achievement in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and provides a broad range of VCE subjects.  The numbers of students achieving ATAR scores over 90 has increased strongly in recent years along with the percentage of students accessing University.  The VCE – Vocational Major is delivered at both Year 11 and 12, with strong Pathways counselling and an applied learning option from Year 10.

The college also participates in a local Vocational Education & Training (VET) cluster, to enhance the choices available to students by sharing VET classes, and provides Cert II Hospitality, Cert II Sport & Recreation, and Cert II Building & Construction on site.  The latter in a specifically constructed Trade Training Centre (TTC), which is one of three facilities built as a joint project across colleges in the Brimbank VET Cluster. 

Year 10 is treated as an introductory year to VCE, with the timetable aligned with Years 11 and 12 and with many of the processes and terminology of VCE introduced this year. This provides opportunities for students in Year 10 to access Year 11 VCE subjects.  There is also a specialist pathways support program for Year 10 students who are academically at risk, leading to a VCE-VM course of study at Year 11.

An emphasis of the college is its strong student support structure with each individual student being known and supported academically and personally. This is achieved by both a House and a Home Group structure.  Student engagement and management is based on four vertically structured Houses of Year 7-12 students. Each House has a unique identity and each is resourced with a Principal Class member, House Leader (Leading Teacher), three Student Coordinators and a Secondary Teacher Assistant. Home Group teachers are assigned to each new Year 7 Home Group and follow them through to Year 12. Two SWC’s, a Mental Health Practitioner, a School Nurse, two psychologist, Doctors in School Program, a Careers teacher and MIPs Officer, onsite HeadStart staff and an Industry Engagement Priority Cohorts Coordinator also provide a range of additional supports to students.

Student Leadership is a strong element of the House structure with an extremely active student leadership group, consisting of House Captains, Year Level Leaders, KLA and Co-curricular Program Ambassadors and Peer Leaders.

The college is an original DET accredited provider of the Select Entry & Accelerated Learning Program (SEAL), with a highly successful program for gifted students. The College operates an International Students Program (ISP) and our students have enjoyed considerable success at VCE.  We also have a strong relationship with the Shiroi district in Japan, with reciprocal school visits each year, with a correspondingly strong LOTE program in Japanese (and Italian) to Year 12.

Victorian government schools are child safe environments. Keilor Downs College actively promotes the safety and wellbeing of all students, and all school staff are committed to protecting students from abuse or harm in the school environment in accordance with their legal obligations including the Child Safe Standards. The school’s Child Safety Code of Conduct is available on the school’s website.
