Location Profile

Bayswater Secondary College General Profile Statement

Bayswater Secondary College is continuing to make significant changes regarding its strategic direction and profile within the local and wider community. As part of the “New Directions” for Bayswater, a range of leadership positions and new curriculum programs have been introduced to build a more rigorous, diverse and academic learning program in the College. The Bayswater Learning Community will be inclusive, highly performing and our community connections will be strong and effective. The school is looking to develop a rigorous and technology rich teaching and learning program that is both innovative but engaging for all students. There is a high level of determination to improve all aspects of the school operations as part of the re-development of the school. There will be a whole school focus on literacy and numeracy, with all teachers expected to be a teacher of literacy.

The school will have an emphasis on improving instructional practice and pedagogy, giving all students a greater opportunity to collaborate in their learning (student voice), as well as actively building student leadership opportunities. Improving communication and relationships within the school and across the community, particularly with our local primary schools, is another priority for Bayswater. There will also be further development of partnerships with business and further education providers to build rich and relevant learning experiences that provide all students with a greater understanding of potential pathways and other possibilities for further education

The school is also looking to develop and implement new curriculum programs and activities that are academic, entrepreneurial, develop creative and critical thinking skills, as well as preparing students for the rapid changes that are occurring globally. As part of this focus, Bayswater Secondary College is also looking to develop international partnerships, including the development of programs and activities that provide students with deep learning opportunities that provide authentic work experience and pathways to build experience and knowledge. We will also actively build inter-cultural understanding for all students, with a focus on developing Asia capabilities as part of a wider global education program, with rich connections within our local community and beyond.

Additionally, given the overall change agenda within the school, the school has gone through a detailed process of re-branding which incorporated all media, publicity and promotions of the school. The “new directions” that the school is currently undertaking will prove to be an exciting time to contribute to the development of a high quality teaching and learning environment. All teaching staff will be encouraged to be proactive, positive active learners who embrace change and the opportunities that this provides.
