Location Profile

Mansfield Secondary College, is a small, rural Victorian school, close to Mt Buller and the snow fields, which offers a wide range of education and training programs to support our students as they transition into adulthood.

Mansfield community is characterised by people with a constructive and supportive attitude. Tourism and our pristine environment drive our economy, leading to a vibrant community with a strong arts, environment and cultural focus. Mansfield is one of the fastest growing shires in the country.

COLLEGE VISION: A dynamic learning environment where the whole community takes responsibility in preparing for the future.

COLLEGE VALUES: The College is committed to a Positive Behaviours program, which aims to encourage student performance and lift engagement by explicitly teaching desired behaviours and using all opportunities to reward student efforts and performance. The program underpins an evolution of a school culture which is based on mutual respect.

CURRICULUM: The College is responsive to the Victorian Curriculum 7-10. Year 7 and 8 students study a common curriculum, both supporting key skill development and enabling exploration of a range of discipline areas. To aid transition, experienced staff work with students to develop student’s knowledge and skills and to help build social capabilities in a new environment. Year 7 and 8 is about consolidation.

Year 9 and 10 students access core units across Science, English, Mathematics and Humanities. A breadth of subject electives, beyond the core units, enables students to engage with a range of different learning and leadership opportunities, working to extend and develop in their areas of passion. Middle school is about exploration.

Senior students from Years 10 to 12 can elect alternative pathways by selecting from a broad range of Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) units, or undertake the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). The College is recognised for successfully linking these studies to Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Australian School Based Apprenticeship programs. Senior school is about narrowing and focusing effort, with excellence and progression a constant focus.

COLLEGE TEACHERS AND STAFF: The relatively small size of the College enables staff to extend additional support to individual students and to create an enriched learning environment. Counselling and support is provided for students from a range of professionals including Year Level Co-ordinators, social workers, psychologists and a school nurse.

STRATEGIC PLAN: The College Strategic Plan aims to improve student learning and engagement, teacher education and facilities. The Strategic Plan is available at the College website.

FACILITIES: In February 2022 the College opened a new STEAM building and a community sports precinct providing high quality sporting facilities for our students as well as a service to the Mansfield Community. Other recently built facilities include Language, Hospitality and Music Centres. The indigenous Bagungga Garden was created by our 2019
School for Student Leadership’s students and provides an outdoor classroom setting. Students with a disability are supported with a purpose-built low-sensory space to enable students to re-charge and re-engage.
