Exam Period
We would like to wish all our Senior School Students who will be commencing exams shortly, our best wishes in their endeavour to be the best they can be and strive for personal excellence.  This  is a busy period for students but we would like to remind them to stay hydrated, eat regularly, get plenty of sleep, stay calm and don't forget to take rest breaks from study.
As Year 12 is reaching its conclusion we offer our thanks to the 2016 School Captains for their leadership and hard work throughout the year and welcome our new College Captains for 2017, Daniella San Jose, Sean Bourke, Alana Stewart and Mia Vissenjoux, and our International Captain Vladimir Wei.
Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Brighton Secondary College.


Established in 1955, we are a co-educational, government secondary college catering for over 1200 students from Years 7 – 12, with a proud history of serving our local Bayside community.


We are committed to providing inclusive, comprehensive and wide ranging educational opportunities to young people. This is reflected in the diverse range of academic and creative subjects we offer. Our facilities are excellent and include a well-resourced library, drama centre, performing arts centre, careers room, media centre, sports stadium and hockey/tennis field. We also have a state of the art Science, Arts and Technology wing, appropriately named the da Vinci Centre


We are excited at the prospect of a further 8 million dollar re-development, which will provide purpose-built learning communities for our year 7 and 8 students, along with a variety of other ancillary spaces. On the completion of this project in late 2017, the large majority of the school’s buildings will have been renewed.


The College is an accredited provider of the Select Entry Accelerated Learning (SEAL) Program for high achieving students. This, along with our English Literature and Humanities Extension Studies program (ELHES) means we have comprehensive programs to ensure gifted and talented students reach their full potential. Our VCE results and tertiary entrance offers are consistently well above the State average. Our College dux for 2015 scored an ATAR of 99.3


There are many opportunities for students to get involved in our extensive co-curricular program. This includes: the annual musical production and House Chorals Festival, inter school Debating, an array of sporting competitions, community engagement programs, World Challenge program and overseas tours to our sister school in Japan and language immersion tours of France.


As Principal of this College I have an expectation that students will meet the three challenges I set for them:

  • Do your best in every endeavour.
  • Take advantage of every program and opportunity offered.
  • Treat every member of our BSC family with respect.

Richard Minack
