The College also has its own school camp at Mirrimbah in the foothills of Mt. Buller. The school is uniquely located within the educational hub of inner Melbourne with access to the resources of The University of Melbourne, Museum and Zoo, all of which are within walking distance.
The College provides for 840 students from Years 7-12. The College is non-selective and draws students from over 30 Primary schools in the Cities of Yarra, Melbourne, Moreland and Darebin, with about 20% of our students travelling from more distant suburbs.
The quality and expertise of the College teaching staff is one of the great strengths of the school with many having served in consultancy and higher education roles. It is also a very stable team, with many staff having been at the school for seven years or more. There are also a number of recent graduates who add energy and innovation to the staff group.
The mutual respect established in the school between students and staff contributes greatly to the quality of the teaching and learning environment of the school.
The College Student Code of Conduct sets out clear guidelines and expectations for student conduct and progress with a particular focus upon recognising and rewarding student achievement. Participation in public events, performances and competitions is widely encouraged and successes are enthusiastically celebrated by the College.
Steeped in history, Princes Hill Secondary College is one of the popular school in the Carlton North area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
