Welcome to Sunbury College, a 7-12 secondary college in the north-west of Melbourne. The township is renowned for being the ‘Home of the Ashes’ and the school has been central to the community since 1960.

An effective education involves a positive three-way partnership between the students, parents and teachers. We believe that the College values form a solid foundation for the development of student potential and we seek your support in their implementation.

Sunbury College has a proud tradition within the community in academic, the arts and sporting domains.

The College provides an academic program in which students are expected to:

  • Be committed to high academic standards
  • Strive to extend their skills and knowledge
  • Take pride in their completed work
  • Respect the school environment, teachers and other students.

The College is committed to the provision of a challenging curriculum, one that differentiates to meet individual needs and encourages students to reach their full potential.  We have expert teachers who work with staff to develop consistent and explicit strategies to secure growth in student achievement and outcomes.  Key Learning Area Leaders and Professional Learning Teams provide staff with support for their core work.

The College values are:

  • Learning and Recognition
  • Teamwork
  • Optimism
  • Honesty and Integrity
  • Support and Compassion
  • Trust
  • Respect
  • Fairness

The College offers a safe, secure, and supportive learning environment which encourages high academic expectations and achievement.  We have a clear Child Safe Policy in line with Ministerial Order No. 870 (Child Safe Standards) of the Education and Training Reform Act. We use data strategically to measure our performance.  Such data includes: VCE results, the School Level Report and the annual student, staff and parent opinion surveys.

We have dedicated wellbeing and careers teams to provide additional support for students and our House structure embodies a strong sense of connectedness that fosters safety. The College provides student support through the role of significant teachers at Year 7, House Connect teachers, Careers and Pathways program, and the work of House Leaders and the Middle and Senior School Program Leaders. The College also has a Wellbeing Coordinator who organises events, coordinates counselling opportunities and oversees the role of our counsellor, youth workers and Chaplain.

Our teaching team is committed to ensuring your child maximises their academic potential at Sunbury College. Just as importantly we offer a school environment that fosters personal growth. We aim to develop young people who are resilient and positive contributors to their community.
