ABOUT US - WERRIBEE SECONDARY COLLEGE

Werribee Secondary College is a single-campus, co-educational, Year 7 to 12 College, with an enrolment of approximately 1560 students.  Since 2000, Werribee Secondary College has experienced heavy demand for enrolments at Year 7 and at other levels.  To manage this, an enrolment neighbourhood is in place to limit the total student population to the College's capacity.

The College is the longest established secondary school in the Wyndham area, with a proud tradition of academic excellence.  The College continues to offer students a high quality education, designed to assist them to develop skills and competencies, and to acquire the knowledge needed to meet future challenges.

Werribee Secondary College was accredited with the Council of International Schools (CIS) in 2006.  The College is proud be the first and only Victorian Government school to have the choice of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.  Our students select the senior programme (VCE or IB) which best suits their individual interests and learning styles.

The College established an International Students Program in 2000 and attracts overseas international students.  Werribee Secondary College has long-standing relationships with schools in Spain, USA, China, Singapore and Japan.

Werribee Secondary College is proud to have a culturally diverse student body where students work and socialise together in harmony and with mutual respect.
