Rosehill Secondary College

Niddrie VIC, Melbourne Western Suburbs

Welcome to Rosehill Secondary College. 

Rosehill Secondary College sits on a large, attractive site with views over the Maribyrnong River Valley and is part of the Moonee Valley network of schools in the South West region.  

The school is a single campus, with Years 7 to 12 divided into Junior School (Years 7 and 8), Middle School (Years 9 and 10) and Senior School (Years 11 and 12). The school has 1,200 students with an even balance of girls and boys. The values of Respect, Initiative and Learning (RIL) underpin the core work of the college.

Rosehill Secondary College is a school with a strong academic focus and a history of consistently high academic results. At Years 7 and 8, in addition to core and elective subjects, there are two periods each week of Literacy and Numeracy Enhancement. The Year 10 level is structured as an introductory year to VCE. 

Rosehill Secondary College has excellent VCE results and is committed to supporting a broad range of careers and further education pathways by also offering the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) within the Senior School. A Selective Talent and Enrichment Program (STEP) is designed to cater for intellectually and academically capable students and this is further enhanced by our Advanced Mathematics (RAMP) and English Programs (REAP) at Years 7 to 10. 

There is a dedicated sporting program, a comprehensive languages program offering Japanese and Italian supported with international cultural tours and a sister school relationship with a prestigious Shinto Secondary College in Japan. 

The performing arts faculties excel in producing a musical or dance performance every year for the local community, with the visual arts department celebrating students’ work with a bi-annual art show, which has gone from strength to strength.

2021 has seen the opening of our new $4.3 million STEM centre, which includes an industrial style kitchen, makerspace, and virtual reality room. We also enjoy re-surfaced playing fields and surrounds. In addition, we have recently received $11.5 million in capital funding. This will see further developments throughout this year and next on our buildings and grounds, including a theatre and specialist classrooms.

I encourage you to visit our website and book a school tour to see our school in action and discuss our educational offerings in person.
