About Brentwood Secondary College

Brentwood Secondary College is a vibrant learning community where all students are supported and encouraged to achieve success and pursue excellence. Brentwood is a place where everyone is learning, both independently and together, and where everyone is continually striving to improve.  Students are supported in their intellectual, emotional, social and physical development by a highly professional group of staff. The belief that happy, healthy, resilient students learn best and are therefore able to achieve their best is a guiding philosophy at Brentwood. 

A Brentwood education will provide every student with the opportunity to develop their talents, nurture a passion and grow in confidence about their future. The values that underpin a Brentwood education reflect the concept of a genuine learning community. They include values for learning (creativity, curiosity, discipline, reflection and resilience) and values for community (compassion, empathy, integrity, respect and responsibility).

The academic program is supported by a strong commitment to pastoral care and a co-curricular framework that promotes high levels of student leadership and participation.  An innovative junior school curriculum includes the Year 7 Thinking, Learning and Creativity (TLC) program, which integrates English, Humanities and ICT. Students entering Brentwood Secondary College at Year 7 have the opportunity to apply for a position in the Curriculum Enrichment Program. The program is offered to students who demonstrate academic skills at a more advanced level than their peer group.  Year 8 and 9 students undertake a comprehensive curriculum, with opportunities for support and individualised learning pathways. The senior school curriculum, which includes Years 10, 11 and 12, promotes personalised pathways along with opportunities for advanced placement and university enhancement studies. A secure education and/or training pathway beyond Brentwood is a priority for all senior students.
