Kyneton Secondary College's educational history goes back at least to Mrs Thompson's school of 1856, which the young Alfred Deakin attended. Our College began in its present building in 1927, but traces its history back to at least 1906, when the Technical School, (January 1906) was founded.
The old building's fine panelling in the foyer and Hall, takes us back to the time when Kyneton provided the only government secondary school between outer Melbourne and Castlemaine.
The current district stretches from Taradale to Woodend, Tylden to Lancefield and Romsey and parts between. Twenty four government buses service district school from our new on-site bus interchange. The geographic range from which students are attracted is mirrored by the wide range of aspirations, abilities and attitudes they bring.
Beginning with an exemplary transition program, through to an excellent middle years program at years 7 and 8, to a brilliant blend of elective and core at years 9 and 10 and rounding off with a VCE and VET program which allows for the aspirations of all students to be met.
Our record in students completing VET courses and obtaining employment and in securing University places has been strong in the past, and is strengthening.
