As the newly appointed College Principal, it is with a sense of pride and excitement that I welcome you to Copperfield College.

Selecting the right school for your child is an important choice. Copperfield College is a unique Multi-Campus College.

‘One College – Three sites – One Family’

  • Kings Park Junior Campus (Years 7 – 10)
  • Sydenham Junior Campus (Years 7 – 10)
  • Delahey Senior Campus (Years 11 – 12)

At Copperfield College we are committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes in terms of Learning and Teaching and of course the wellbeing for all our students. Empowering Every Student to Aspire and Achieve is our Mission statement.  The key word in our mission statement is Every; because we know that Every child can learn, that Every child can progress, and together with the outstanding College Leadership team and staff, we will make that happen.

Copperfield College is a large school with many advantages and strengths. Operating across three good size sites means students receive the benefits of smaller schools, which are complemented by our Team and Wellbeing structures.

Our focus on individual growth and success, together with our emphasis on student wellbeing, encourages students to be safe, be respectful and take ownership of their own learning and future pathways, in a very nurturing and supporting school environment. Our students are provided with many opportunities to excel, these include general academic excellence, sporting, visual and performing arts, debating and public speaking, leadership, environmental, a strong instrumental music program and a myriad of other extracurricular activities. There are numerous ways in which students may showcase their talents to both the local, wider and global communities.

Copperfield College is a strong, diverse community that celebrates our student achievements, leading in innovative pedagogy within the wider community. Our School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) framework aims to create and maintain a positive and safe learning environment that enhances our school culture maximising individual academic and social growth.

Our students join us with a wide diversity of interests, talents and learning needs. We are proud to engage them with a rich and varied curriculum, specialised facilities, and excellent teachers. This is supported by the multi-campus structure of the College which allows students to learn in an environment which is tailored and targeted to their stages of schooling.

Our three campuses provide an outstanding learning environment that is both inspiring and nurturing. At our Junior Campuses, we ensure that students make a strong transition to high school education and develop the habits, aptitudes, and character strengths to be successful learners and outstanding future global citizens. The Senior Campus provides students with extensive options to meet their individual needs, (one of the largest breadth of VCE, VCE VM, VET subjects and one of the best Careers and Pathways programs in the state) building their confidence and independence to ensure that they have a clear pathway towards ‘creating their bright future’.

Copperfield College has very high expectations for all our students, staff and parents. Our College values of Collaboration, Inclusiveness and Growth underpin all we do and determine the way our student operate from the moment they wear our school uniform to school, until they safely return home in the evening. These high expectations are not just in their academic pursuits, but also in their engagement with the many extracurricular programs and opportunities that make this school the vibrant place it is. Everything we do is based on respect, orderly yard, and classroom environment, complimented by our committed teaching and educational support staff who work tirelessly to ensure our students are safe, happy and successful.

As College Principal, together with my Leadership Team, we are focused on ensuring that every student has the opportunity and support to be the best they can be. The school’s rich history, the achievements of the past, present and anticipation for the future inspires every day of our work, and I am proud to be Principal of Copperfield College, leading a wonderful school community.

Of course, this website cannot take the place of visiting our school; I sincerely encourage you to contact the College and organise a school tour of one , or all three of our campuses, providing you with an opportunity to see our impressive facilities across the College. I am sure you will discover firsthand what makes Copperfield College an innovative, and outstanding College.
