The benefits of having three campuses at Essendon Keilor College

Middle Years (7-9) Niddrie and East Keilor campuses:

The Niddrie campus underwent redevelopment in 2018, purpose-built to support middle years education. The learning spaces across the campus enable students to explore a range of learning opportunities within an environment that upholds high expectations.

Our East Keilor campus is currently undergoing redevelopment as part of a Capital Works project. We aim to align the vision of having a purpose-built campus with the goal of achieving quality outcomes for our students.

Our middle years philosophy aims to provide students with depth and breadth in their learning experiences and extracurricular opportunities. We strive for our students to engage in a variety of experiences that enable them to become the best version of themselves. We believe that the skills learned from pursuing areas of passion are transferable to the classroom and foster positive connections within the school.

Having two purpose-built middle years campuses offers the advantage of allowing us to deeply understand our students. Each campus has the capacity to accommodate 100 students at each year level (7, 8, and 9), fostering a strong emphasis on transition and connection throughout the school.

Later Years (10-12) Essendon Campus

Our Essendon campus is situated in the heart of Essendon. The campus is steeped in tradition that dates back to 1913, formerly known as Essendon High School.

Our later years campus offers Year 10 to Year 12 students experiences that will allow them to pursue their chosen pathways beyond Essendon Keilor College. The environment enables students to focus on their selected pathways in an adult-like learning environment.

The Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) is our major pathway undertaking, with our destination data highlighting our students' generally pathway into first and second-round opportunities at University.

The Vocational Major (VM) pathway allows students to pursue their passions in a range of trade and industry pathways in an applied learning environment.

We encourage our teachers to become examination assessors for the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) to extend their expertise in their respective subjects. Our teachers focus on the point of learning need for each student and develop a differentiated strategy for teaching every child.

Once again, there are distinct advantages to having a later years campus where a range of pathway and subject frameworks are in place to support our students.
