Location Profile

Cheltenham Secondary College is well reflected in the statement: "Tradition and excellence in a caring, disciplined environment."  

Founded in 1959, Cheltenham Secondary College is a single campus, Year 7 to 12 coeducational college of approximately 900 students. The College motto is 'Health and Learning'. The College is committed to providing comprehensive, relevant and challenging programs that enable all students to work towards achieving their potential and to be responsible and contributing citizens to their community, Australia and the World.  We provide balanced and relevant education in an encouraging and nurturing way.  


The College’s values are Personal Best, Sense of Community, Respect and Responsibility. These values guide us in everything we do from personal growth and responsibility, inclusion and social justice, lifelong learning (to learn, to know, to be and to live together), experiential learning and eLearning.

How do we define or display these values?

  • Development of personal excellence and willingness to participate is encouraged and acknowledged. 
  • By maintaining traditional values linked to the dress code/uniform, strong discipline and a supportive welfare structure.
  • As a unified environment, we advocate honesty, loyalty, courtesy, consideration for all, tolerance and respect for one another.  
  • By fostering a sense of pride in self and a willingness to excel, which in turn encourages team spirit.


The College is bordered by a residential area, a light industrial zone and a large shopping complex (Westfield Southland), with both Monash University and Holmesglen TAFE Moorabbin Campus in close proximity. The College is well serviced by public transport, including bus services and the Cheltenham, Southland and Moorabbin railway stations.

Many enrolments are from outside the College's designated zone. During the last few years, student enrolments have stabilised at around 900. Enrolments also include a cohort of overseas fee paying students, thus adding further to the multicultural nature of the College. Enrolments of boys exceed enrolments of girls at most year levels. The Student Family Occupation Index is reducing slightly.  


Cheltenham Secondary College has a dedicated staff who are committed to the best outcomes for students, who support the ethos of the College and are approachable and receptive. There is low turnover of staff.


Students are grouped horizontally in year levels and managed in three sub-schools: Junior (years 7 and 8), Middle (years 9 and 10) and Senior (years 11 and 12) Schools. The College also runs an Intermediate and a Senior VCAL program.  The Year 12 pass rate is very high and the vast majority of students go on to tertiary study.

The College provides a common and comprehensive program of cross and cocurricular activities to all students across all year levels.  Each sub-school is led by a Director and four Coordinators.

As students move through the school, the opportunities available to sub-school curriculums are:

                Middle School

                Years 9 and 10:

  • Students are provided with the common core curriculum, but are also able to choose elective subjects in their chosen areas, leading to their final choices of a Senior School program that provides them with academic, vocational and traineeship post-secondary needs.

Year 10:

  • Students undertake work placement.
  • Some students take up apprenticeships, traineeships or transfer to a senior campus college after year 10.
  • Students are able to participate in Vocational Education and Training (VETis), in University Enhancement programs.

Senior School

Year 11:

  • Year 11 students undertake work placement.

Years 11 and 12:

  • Students have the option to continue their academic pathway through the VCE and VCAL programs.
  • Students are able to participate in Vocational Education and Training (VETis), in University Enhancement programs.
  • A significant number of students study a Language other than English (LOTE) outside normal school hours with external providers.



  • An extensive cocurricular activities program exists which allows students to develop their talents outside of the classroom.
  • The College takes a very high profile in inter-school competitions (especially sport and debating), has an extensive instrumental music program, a Year 12 Leaders program, a Student Representative Council, Form Captains and an invaluable peer support program.  
  • The Avenues, a sister school interstate exchange program which expands the opportunities for students and focuses on competitive and cooperative programs in sport, culture and the arts.  


  • Parents and Friends: The College welcomes and actively encourages parent participation in their children's schooling through the College Council and its range of subcommittees and the Parents and Friends Association.
  • Local Council, Sporting Groups and other key broader community groups: City of Kingston, Kingston and Districts Netball Association, the Local Learning and Employment Network (LLEN), various Rotary Clubs, RSL and welfare organisations.
