Point Cook Senior Secondary College is an eight year old school for students in Years 10-12, located in the fast growing and multicultural Point Cook area of Wyndham in Melbourne's west. We opened our doors for the first time to an intake of 100 Year 10 students on 29th January, 2008. At the time of writing the College has 825 students in Years 10, 11 & 12 and the three stages of our building program have all been completed.
At Point Cook Senior, we emphasise positive relationships, success in a multitude of pathways, and the development of the whole person. As a dedicated senior school, we offer a broad range of VCE subjects, acceleration opportunities, select entry academic programs, and hands-on programs like VET and VCAL.
Our college offers pathways into many different areas of life -- higher education, a wide number of professions, sporting endeavours, performing arts and a variety of highly skilled trades, to name a few. Students learn inside and beyond the classroom, helping to ensure they leave as young adults, well prepared for life after secondary college.
The learning spaces of the school include the Learning Resource Centre, Design Technology facilities for Textiles and Wood, a Gymnasium, Food Technology, Music and Drama spaces, and a Science & Technology centre. We have also recently taken possession of a new Trade Training Centre which hosts VET studies in Automotive and Building and Construction.
In a short period of time our College has also become a leader in a variety of areas, including becoming a Centre of Excellence for pre service teacher training, a VCE, VCAL and VET teacher network facilitator, a key member of the Victorian Senior Schools Forum, the Hobson's Bay Network and the Point Cook Precinct.
A key value of our College is the strong emphasis we place on relationships and on developing the whole person. This is evident in our Advisory program which operates for 30 minutes each day and is based around a program which embraces Pathways counselling, literacy, study skills, mental health and adolescent wellbeing activities.

Steeped in history, Point Cook Senior Secondary College is one of the popular school in the Point Cook 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.
