History


Gleneagles Secondary College is located in Endeavour Hills on the lands of the Kulin Nation. Although the College and the community it serves is less than 40 years old, learning communities have flourished on this land for more than 30,000 years.

 

Founded as part of the multi-campus Eumemmering Secondary College in 1995, Gleneagles Secondary College became a separate legal entity in 2009 but retains strong curricular links through an Alliance with Fountain Gate Secondary College and Hallam Senior College. Since its formation the College has gained a strong reputation as a caring and community minded school built on a commitment to student-centred learning and inclusive education.

 

Today the College has an enrolment of 1500 students from Year 7 to Year 12 and a staff of 155. Ours is a culturally and ethnically diverse community with 50% of our students coming from a language background other than English and 5% have refugee status. Approximately 1% of our students identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. As a College we celebrate the richness that diversity brings to a community and our educational programs give voice to the different experiences of our families.
