The first Princes Hill school was established on this site in 1889. The current buildings were completed in 1973, winning awards for architectural excellence. The Performing Arts Centre, Textiles & Food Facilities and VCE Classrooms have been completed. The Science Laboratories were refurbished during 2005 and the construction of our new Gymnasium has begun and will be ready for use by later in 2006.
In addition to the school buildings, the College has access to Princes Park at the rear of the school for recreational and sports activities, as well as its own gymnasium and two outside courts. The College also has its own school camp at Mirrimbah in the foothills of Mt. Buller. The school is uniquely located within the educational hub of inner Melbourne with access to the resources of The University of Melbourne, Museum and Zoo, all of which are within walking distance.
The College provides for 800 students from Years 7-12. The College is non-selective and draws students from over 30 Primary schools in the Cities of Yarra, Melbourne, Moreland and Darebin, with about 20% of our students travelling from more distant suburbs. The Victorian School of Languages, the Princes Hill Community Centre and a variety of other users add to the creative community activity centred around the College.
