Leongatha Secondary College is located 130 kilometres south east of Melbourne and came into existence in 1990 following the amalgamation of the local high and technical schools.
Leongatha Secondary College has an enrolment of approximately 900 students: the majority of Years 7 -10 students are drawn from Leongatha (pop. 5250) and its neighbouring communities, while a significant number of V.C.E. students travel from a wider area to take advantage of the College’s extensive V.C.E. program (36 of the possible 44 V.C.E. studies are currently available).
Our College aims to provide a broad, high quality curriculum that is flexible, relevant and responsive to the needs of the community. In Years 7 - 10 students undertake studies from the eight curriculum areas of English, Mathematics, Science, Studies of Society and Environment, Technology, Language Other Than English (French, Indonesian & Japanese), Arts, Health and Physical Education. An extensive elective program is offered at Years 9 and 10 to enable students to pursue areas of individual interest.
The College comprises two adjacent campuses on a site of 56 acres. These campuses are linked in the middle by an extensive arts and staff facility. The West campus functions as the base site for students in Years 7 - 10 and the East campus operates as a specialist V.C.E. facility.
