Location Profile

Cheltenham Secondary College is well reflected in the statement: "Tradition and Excellence in a Caring, Disciplined Environment"

Founded in 1959, Cheltenham Secondary College is a single campus, Year 7 to 12 co-educational college of approximately 950 students. The college motto is 'Health and Learning' . The college is committed to providing comprehensive, relevant and challenging programs that enable all students to work towards achieving their potential and to be responsible and contributing citizens of Australia and the World.

The college values personal growth and responsibility, inclusion and social justice, lifelong learning (to learn, to know, to be and to live together),

experiential learning and e-learning.

The College is bordered by a residential area, a light industrial zone and a large shopping complex (Westfield Southland), with both Monash University and Holmesglen TAFE Moorabbin Campus in close proximity. The College is well serviced by several forms of public transport, including bus services and the Cheltenham and Moorabbin railway stations.

Many enrolments are from outside the College's designated zone. During the last few years, student enrolments have stabilised at about 950. Enrolments also include a cohort of overseas fee paying students thus adding further to the multicultural nature of the college. Enrolments of boys exceed enrolments of girls at most year levels. The Student Family Occupation (SFO) Index is reducing slightly.

Cheltenham Secondary College has a dedicated, well-qualified staff who are committed to the best outcomes for students and who support the ethos of the College. There is low turnover of staff.

The College maintains traditional values linked to the dress code/uniform, strong discipline and a supportive welfare structure. It provides a common and comprehensive program to Middle School students, who are assisted by trained Peer Support Leaders, student coaches and a welcoming community. Cross and co-curricular activities are part of the Middle Years program. The Middle School program continues to provide students with a common core while allowing them to begin specialisation in their chosen areas, leading to their final choices of a senior school program that provides them with their academic, vocational and traineeship post-secondary needs. Years 10 and 11 students undertake work placement. Some students participate in Vocational Education and Training (VETis), in University Enhancement programs and a significant number of students study a Language other than English (LOTE) outside normal school hours with external providers. The Year 12 pass rate is very high and the vast majority of students go on to tertiary study. The school also runs an Intermediate and a Senior VCAL program. Some students take up apprenticeships and traineeships or transfer to a senior campus college after Year 10.

Cheltenham provides students with many opportunities to develop their talents outside of the classroom. An extensive co-curricular activities program exists.

The College takes a very high profile in inter-school competitions (especially sport and debating), has an extensive instrumental music program, a Year 12 Leaders program, a Student Representative Council, Form Captains, and an invaluable peer support program.

A sister school exchange exists which expands the opportunities for students; this is an interstate exchange which focuses on competitive and co-operative programs in sport, culture and the arts.

The College welcomes and actively encourages parent participation in their children's schooling through the College Council and its range of subcommittees and the Parents and Friends Association. The College has strategic links with the City of Kingston, Kingston and Districts Netball Association, the Local Learning and Employment Network (LLEN), various Rotary Clubs, RSL and welfare organisations.


The college’s values are Personal Best, Sense of Community, Respect and Responsibility . These values guide us in everything we do.

This is presented in a helpful, friendly and safe environment, with staff being approachable and receptive.
