About Hallam Senior College
The College provides comprehensive programs at Years 10 – 12 through a broad range of VCE studies, VET certificates and VCAL programs all leading to further education, employment and training. The programs are designed around subject groupings to meet particular educational and vocational pathways. At Hallam Senior College we aim to prepare our young people to confidently and successfully embrace the challenges of life. We seek to provide all students with the maximum opportunity for personal and academic growth in a supportive environment, one specially designed for students in their later secondary years.
The College values relationships built on respect and responsibility where the relationships between people, learning and the environment frame our actions. Our College works in partnership with a number of organisations to provide maximum choice and flexibility in program and subject delivery. These include our Alliance schools (Gleneagles Secondary College and Fountain Gate Secondary College) our Trade Training Centre schools (6 other local schools) Deakin University, Swinburne University, Chisholm Institute and other Training Organisations.
Sub Schools are formed around groups of Programs. Students are divided into Sub Schools based on their programs/choice.
The Sub Schools are:
- Traditional Trades and Technologies
- Arts and Humanities
- Sport and Health Sciences
- Science, IT and Commerce
The Sub Schools are the cornerstone of communication and administration for students and their families. Attendance and pastoral care are administered and monitored by the sub schools ensuring that students in each sub school have a group of adults who know them well and follow their progress.
Students are at the centre of our thinking, planning and actions. We aim to ensure that we provide positive learning experiences for every student in a young adult environment. The relationships we forge with students and their families are critical elements of a student’s success at this important stage of their learning. We provide additional services by way of pathways planning advice, welfare and careers advice.
