Victory College

Secondary at Victory

Victory College prepares students to lead a purposeful life beyond school.

Our Secondary College aims to develop a student’s personal responsibility and spiritual growth, to advance their learning and to help them set life goals.

In Secondary, each student belongs to a Pastoral Care class with a teacher assigned to that class to oversee student wellbeing and to help them create a nurturing and stable environment for their academic journey.

Our curriculum is designed to see students reach their full potential and focuses as much as possible on giving students practical and real learning opportunities.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses

Students at Victory are able to undertake VET courses in partnership with outside RTOs such as TAFE. Students currently access these courses through the TAFE at Schools Program.

School-based apprenticeships and traineeships (SATs)

SATs allow students to work for an employer and train towards a recognised qualification under contract of training while completing their school studies. Students whose SAT is not completed by the time they finish Year 12 may convert to a full-time or part-time apprenticeship or traineeship.

Other Options

Students at Victory College have the possibility to acquire an even wider range of skills and knowledge through alternative options: some students might be interested in enrolling at entry-level courses at our partnering universities; other students might want to enrol in ‘exotic’ subjects via distance education. Whatever our students’ special interests are, if it is in the best interest of the student, we are very happy to assist in making it happen.

Students also participate in extra-curricular experiences such as sport, chapel, camps, academic competitions, music programs as well as applying to be part of the Student Representative Council or College leadership programs.
