Location Profile

Established in 1921, Bacchus Marsh College has a long and proud history with strong community links and partnerships. The College is an integral part of the community and the past record of our students in academic, cultural and sporting fields is noted with pride.

Our purpose is to inspire all members of the Bacchus Marsh College community to be lifelong learners.  We are open to all by being inclusive.  We have strong teacher efficacy – each and every student can and will learn from us.  Our students strive to achieve their best and build resilience for the challenges that the future will bring. Our College values are Respect, Responsibility and Effort.

Being the only state secondary school servicing the town, Bacchus Marsh College provides a comprehensive and inclusive curriculum with a range of pathways to meet the interests and needs of a wide variety of students. Literacy, numeracy and ICT are integrated into the teaching and learning program, and a wide range of VCE and VET studies are offered to our senior students, including VCAL provision, and access to School Based Apprenticeships. “The Avenue” is an example of an alternate program that we offer to cater for our students and can include blended learning options to meet individual student needs. We also have a diverse range of extra-curricular activities on offer.

Ecolinc, a state-wide specialist science and mathematics centre, is an important part of the College, providing our students and staff with a range of opportunities to enhance levels of engagement and learning in science and mathematics. We work in conjunction with the local Shire to operate joint use facilities, including a Recreation Centre. We have invested into ICT infrastructure and boast a genuine 1:1 Netbook program, Interactive Whiteboards and Projectors are installed in almost every classroom, as well as access to video-conferencing facilities. Following recent capital works, our College now boasts state-of-the-art facilities including a Science, Technology and Year 9 Learning Community Centre; a Materials Technology facility including a project yard; Food Technology, Hospitality and VCAL spaces; a dedicated space for our “Avenue” program; and an extension to Ecolinc. Further plans for refurbishments are underway to modernise a Library Resource and Study Centre, amongst other upgrades.

After extensive staff consultation, the College operates in Learning Communities (Year 7 & 8, Year 9, and Years 10-12) to ensure the development of all students, academically and socially. We believe that quality relationships based on inclusiveness and mutual respect between parents, teachers and students are the key to us achieving our purpose. We continue to implement School-wide Positive Behaviours Support and are committed to continuing to utilise this evidence-based framework for positive outcomes, and have recently been appointed as a ‘Lead School’ for Respectful Relationships.

We have made significant strides forward in recent time, with our achievement and opinion data showing signs of improvement, and our Staff Opinion Survey data is indicating improvement in the key areas, including “Learning”. This suggests that the work that we are doing as a staff in Professional Learning Teams and the like, is having a positive effect on teaching and learning at the College.

The College is within walking distance (approximately 150m) to the Bacchus Marsh Railway Station (Ballarat / Melbourne line). This provides easy access to the school via public transport for teachers from Ballarat or Melbourne.
