Peak performance is underpinned by our six Pillars of Learning
Essendon Keilor College is a co-educational, multi-campus government school servicing Years 7-12 students in the north-western metropolitan suburbs of Melbourne. We operate Junior campuses for Years 7-9 students in Keilor East and Niddrie, and a Senior campus for Years 10-12 students in Essendon. Senior students can choose course combinations from up to 40 VCE studies, three VET subjects, as well as Intermediate and Senior VCAL. Our growing college enrols 700 students including over 140 international students.
The College was founded in 1993 with the amalgamation of Queens Park Secondary College (formerly Essendon Technical School), Essendon High School, Niddrie High School and Keilor Heights Secondary College. Since inception, the College has remained committed to providing an excellent education in a caring and supportive environment. Today, because we’re future-focused, this means partnering with all community members to instil the values and implement the vision and strategic direction that best prepares students to flourish in the ever-evolving 21st century.
To that end, our expert teachers deliver an engaging, personalised curriculum that fosters continual progress and peak performance. It is an empowering process that equally fosters academic and personal development, and provides countless opportunities to celebrate success.
Each child’s positive, holistic schooling experience is intentionally fostered by: our nurturing, orderly environment; our enriching curriculum and broad learning opportunities; our exceptional facilities; our service orientation; and our commitment to innovation.
At Essendon Keilor College, we’re passionate about each student’s progress at every age and stage of their unique learning journey. We want them to know how to achieve peak performance now so they can enjoy life and continue to thrive in the world of study and work they graduate into. It’s a world in which emotional intelligence, a growth mindset, creativity, adaptability and an ethical framework matters as much, if not more, as the knowledge and skills brought to any context. That’s why an Essendon Keilor College education is purposeful, personal, positive, practical and principled.
Our continued response to meeting the needs of 21st century learners is generating real excitement across the community. It’s noticeable because it’s making the positive difference we’re after. It’s not just about our new buildings and facilities, the exceptional leaders and teachers we’re hiring, our explicit values driven culture, the programs we’ve launched, or the broad ranging opportunities we provide – it’s about their combined impact. Together they’re powerful and are signaling that something new, something special is happening at EKC.
