Sandringham College is a 7-12 co-educational government school in the southern bayside area of Melbourne. The College comprises of two campuses : The Bluff Road 7-9 Campus and the Holloway Road 10-12 Campus.
These campuses are located within 10 minutes walking distance from each other.
Sandringham College has worked extensively with its community to reshape the College and position itself as a world class school.
The College has revisited its Vision, Mission and Values. Sandringham College is also in the process of consolidating its school wide pedagogical and student management structures.
The key Teaching and Learning framework is enshrined in the core educational principle of a structured learning environment.
Interdependent learning (opportunities for students to work together in pairs, small and large groups) and Independent Learning (opportunities for students to work by themselves).
The school also values student voice and student agency and is actively working towards a model that embraces the co-creation of learning within each classroom.
In 2018 the total enrolment is approximately 950 students with equal numbers of students on each campus. Sandringham College is located in a relatively affluent are of Melbourne, although it does have a range of socio-economic groups, with some 15% of families receiving CSEF / Youth Allowance.
A very low proportion of students come from non-English speaking backgrounds.
The College has a strong profile in the community. Students also come to the College from a wide area of Melbourne. In particular, the 10-12 Campus draws students from other locations.
These students are attracted by the breadth of studies and the more adult culture of the Campus, with over 40 VCE Studies and 36 VET studies, as well as an innovative and successful VCAL program.
The 7-9 Campus at Bluff Road provides excellent opportunities for students, a broad range of subjects, with a range of innovative programs including enhancement programs such as SEAL and our Sport and Dance Academies.
The College also has a very successful International Students Program, with over sixty students from countries including Japan, China, Germany, Italy and Brazil.
Sandringham College is committed to providing access and excellence for all and this is reflected in the College Vision and Values and supporting values :
To empower and challenge students to excel as active, responsible learners and productive members of their school, local and global community.

Range 3 is distinguished by the introduction of management responsibility and accountability for the delivery of professional support services.
The role will usually impact beyond the work area or professional field. It seeks to gain cooperation of other staff members or members of the school community to achieve specific objectives, such as in school administration, operations or educational programs.
Direction on targets and goals is provided but the position will have some degree of latitude in determining how they are achieved.
This latitude will generally be limited by standard procedures and school policy. Deviation from standard procedures and school policy will require guidance and direction from senior management.
The provision of business management responsibilities becomes a feature at range 3. Management of staff to achieve the expected outcomes is a key responsibility.
Staff management issues will be resolved with minimal reference to senior management, although guidance will be required in more complex cases.
Senior management will be provided with timely reports and advice, although this will generally be confined to matters relating to the immediate work area, service provision or educational program and is unlikely to impact substantially on whole of school operations.
This is the minimum range for positions that carry a mandatory qualification requirement of not less than four years. Professional student support positions become a feature at range 3 (e.
g. therapists, psychologists) where standard professional services are delivered. Professional support and guidance will be close at hand and deviation from standard procedures and school policy will require guidance and direction from senior management.
An education support class position supports the educational services being provided to students, but must not include duties of teaching as defined in clause 2.
6.1 of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic) or its successor. Supervision of students cannot be required except where it is an integral part of the employee s position or involves supervision of students individually or in small groups, in controlled circumstances, where the responsibility for students remains clearly with a teacher.
