Timboon Consolidated School opened its doors in 1948. It wasn’t until 1960 that the High School became a separate entity. In 1995, Timboon Consolidated School and Timboon High School were reunited to become known as Timboon P-12. In 1996, a new staff and administration centre was opened to cement the two former schools as one. The primary and secondary campuses were connected by a covered walkway. Common bell times were introduced to allow for cross-sector teaching and the school was organised into three subschools (P-4, 5-8 and 9-12) under the care of subschool leaders. The 21st Century continues to present exciting educational opportunities for Timboon P-12 students.

Timboon is located in the dairying district of South West Victoria, approximately 35 kilometres south of Camperdown and 52 kilometres east of Warrnambool. The majority of students come from farming families, however service industries and a growing hospitality industry serving the needs of tourists, particularly along the Great Ocean Road, are becoming increasingly important.

The school enrolment is approximately 720 students, with 420 at Primary level and 300 at Secondary level. Eighty percent of students travel on the extensive bus network from the surrounding district. Approximately 42% of families receive the Educational Maintenance Allowance. There are few students from a Non-English Speaking Background. Retention rates during transition from year six to year seven vary annually with students, often attending the secondary setting that their parents attended. The great majority of students of Timboon P-12 School leave the district at the end of their secondary education. Most undertake tertiary education or enter the work force through apprenticeship or training .
