Principal’s Message

Lyndhurst Secondary College has a dynamic and diverse learning community in which we seek to empower students for learning and life.

A cooperative spirit is prevalent among the school, and each student enjoys the caring and supportive environment in which they learn every day. The values that our school holds encourage commitment, excellence, integrity and respect. All of these are inherent in the College community itself: the staff, students and their families alike.

We’re dedicated to supplementing students’ learning with a wide range of co-curricula programs. These include extensive student leadership development, performing arts and sporting opportunities. Every student is encouraged to get involved with the wider community of their school, and we’re here to help them build on the necessary skills to do so. Multipride, our award-winning program, has become a model for supporting cultural harmony within other schools since its inception several years ago.

Our staff focus classroom learning on the growth individual students make to ensure everyone’s expectations are maintained. We determine a student’s progress by assessment data, which establishes their entrance level and, later, establishes their level of growth. Curriculum is differentiated so every student, no matter the starting point, achieves their best.

Lyndhurst Secondary College’s select entry Academic Curriculum Enhancement (ACE) program is a learning pathway for high-achievers. ACE students access unique learning opportunities and get an early start to VCE through this program. It accelerates and enhance their specialist learning, which is important if they need a certain ATAR score.

We place equal emphasis on those students seeking a career in a trade. Trade students can experience work placement and TAFE education, and can enhance their learning through the wide range of VET and VCAL options, such as a school-based apprenticeship or structured workplace learning program.

On behalf of our College community, I would like to thank you for taking the time to find out more about our school.

Please see our online prospectus and virtual tour.  We look forward to welcoming you to our community.
