Horsham College was established in January 1994 as a result of the merger of Horsham High School and Horsham Secondary College (formerly Horsham Technical School). It is a secondary school of approximately 1000 students from Years 7 - 12 located in the heart of the grain growing Wimmera region some 300 kilometres from Melbourne. Twenty-five per cent of our students travel by bus from rural areas. The College is located on 14.74 hectares and there are clearly defined Junior and Senior sites based on the two original school sites. The College has undergone a major buildings upgrade, which included a new administration centre, a new technology building and other significant improvements to classrooms.
As the only government secondary provider in the city of 13,000 people, students come from a wide range of socio-economic circumstances. About thirty per cent of students receive the Education Maintenance Allowance or Austudy.
Horsham College provides a broad, balanced curriculum based on the pursuit of excellence and the principle of providing as many opportunities for success as possible to all its students.
