College Captain's Vision 2017
As College Captain's for 2017, we are incredibly proud to be part of a progressive and innovative school that celebrates diversity and strives to create a culture of collaboration and respect, in order for every individual to achieve personal excellence.
Our ultimate goal is to achieve a culture of unity within the school, having shared values and behaviours to create a sense of harmony and camaraderie.
As College Captains, we have chosen two words: integrity and gratitude, as two values that are important to us.  We want students to be appreciative of the wonderful opportunities we have access to, and be thankful for our superb education.

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 2018, 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.


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 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.

BSC A Capella group 'Minitonic'
Minitonic performed at the Inner South East Partnerships Assembly for the Department of Planning and Development in August. They performed with so much professionalism and poise, and as a result, have been invited by the Mayor to perform at the next Citizenship Ceremony in October.  This is a huge honor and we are very proud of the group and their voice teacher Ms Bradsworth!
