Located in the Gippsland Region of The Department of Education and Training (DE&T), Wonthaggi Secondary College is a Year 7-12 dual campus school of around 1100 students. The Dudley Campus (Years 7 to 9) and the McBride Campus (Years 10 to 12) are situated three kilometres apart. 

The College draws its students from nine feeder schools located in the Bass Coast Shire.  The Shire encompasses a large rural and coastal area centred around Wonthaggi, Inverloch, Grantville/Corinella, Coronet Bay and Phillip Island.  Over 60% of the student population travel to the school by bus.  There is one major private school in the area (Newhaven College on Phillip Island) and no other Government secondary schools. 

Wonthaggi was a coal-mining town but is now the busy hub of a thriving tourist area.  The College is located in a rapidly growing local government shire and this will have a substantial impact on enrolments and demographics.
