Location Profile

Glenroy Secondary College is located in Glenroy 20 minutes from the CBD on the corner of Glenroy and Cardinal Roads. It has easy access to public transport centred between Glenroy and Fawkner Train Stations.

The diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds of the 460 students enrolled at the College are drawn from the surrounding areas, including Glenroy, Oak Park, Hadfield, Pascoe Vale, Coburg and Broadmeadows. In 2020, the College confirmed a significant increase in enrolments, testament to the strategic changes that have been implemented over the past 3 years which have created a positive perception of the College in the community. The College completed a rebuild of the main teaching and administration areas over 2020.

Our students are our greatest ambassadors and they continually and positively represent the College values of Achievement, Respect, Integrity and Teamwork, in their own learning and their behaviours towards others. 

Glenroy College is committed to successful outcomes for all our students. We work to equip students with the essential learning skills they will need to succeed in our complex, flexible and constantly-changing world. The College staff has adopted High Impact Teaching Strategies across all domains, implemented Literacy and Assessment for Learning, College-Wide Positive Behaviour Support and Professional Learning Communities. We also have a collegiate classroom visit structure based around teaching teams to support effective teaching practices. 

The College actively supports our learners with Junior (Years 7-9) and Senior (Years 10-12) Sub Schools with Year Level Leaders and a Sub School Manager. Each Sub school is further supported with teams of staff who provide individualised attention to the academic progress and wellbeing of each student. Increased enrolments suggest that the College may structure the year levels across 3 Sub-schools in the near future.

Our programs encourage the highest standards of achievement in every activity undertaken by our students. We collect literacy and numeracy data on students in years 7 to 10 through established testing schedules. Feedback is provided to students and data is provided to teaching teams whose major role is to improve academic outcomes for all students. This data is also used to inform parents of their child’s progress through our system of parent interviews and online parent portal. In 2020 we implemented a five weekly progress reporting system and, due to covid19 Remote and Flexible Learning, conducted inaugural virtual Parent Teacher Interviews which received a very strong positive endorsement from our families.

Our teaching and learning methods recognise that students must be able to use computers and multi-media technologies with confidence and understanding to enhance both their learning and their ability to fully participate in our information-filled world. This has been further highlighted during 2020 where teaching and learning was significantly conducted through remote platforms.

Additional special programs are available to support and extend students including our interactive and supportive Junior and Senior Back on Track, Instrumental Music and inter-school sport, Middle Years Literacy and Numeracy Support, High Achievers Program, Drama and music performances through partnerships with local community organisations. We conduct a successful Year 6 to 7 transition program incorporating extended orientation with trained Year 9 Buddies. All Year 9 students participate in the Rite Journey and $20 Boss, programs designed to assist young people transitioning into adulthood and provides them with experiences of community volunteering and developing business awareness. The College uses the adaptive, individualised online Maths Pathway to replace the textbook in Years 7-9 to develop their understanding and application of numeracy. Our Senior students have access to both VCE and VCAL from Year 11. 

The strength of Glenroy College lies in our ability to provide an excellent, balanced and diverse program, while blending innovation and tradition, allowing freedom and creativity within a caring, co-educational setting in which each student learns and grows in an environment of mutual respect and co-operation. The College uses the framework of the Positive Behaviour Support to structure and implement student management and wellbeing through the years with a strong focus on the College Values: Achievement, Resect, Integrity and Teamwork.

The College has a strong and interconnected Engagement and Wellbeing Team, comprising Wellbeing Team Leader, Mental Health Practitioner, Inclusion Co-ordinator and Inclusion Aides, Family Liaison Officer, Chaplain, Adolescent Health Nurse, Doctor in Schools, visiting professionals including psychologists, speech therapists and social workers. Students also benefit from a range of programs and services provided by local organisations, including Moreland Council.

Students are careers counselled extensively when moving through the year levels and into VCE/VCAL, developing pathways built around their interests and strengths and acknowledging their aspirations. Accelerated year 10 students are invited to access VCE subjects. The College also offers access to VET programs along with VCAL.

Our College develops student leaders through all levels with Class Captains, College Year 12 Captains and Sports Captains. We provide a high quality and extensive student wellbeing structure involving mentors and level leaders supported by a wellbeing team that provides programs, case management and counselling. 

The College welcomes and encourages parent and community involvement. Our facilities are used extensively by community groups after school and on weekends.
 We are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic leader, committed to working with staff teams to achieve the best possible outcomes for each of our students.
