Vision & Values

TeacherBrentwood Secondary College is a vibrant learning community where all students are supported and encouraged to achieve success and to pursue excellence. A learning community is a place where everyone is learning, both independently and together, and where everyone is continually striving to improve.  Our guiding philosophy is the belief that all students learn best when they are happy, healthy and resilient.

Our purpose is to ensure that every student is provided with every opportunity to achieve their potential.  A Brentwood education will provide every student with the opportunity to develop their talents, to nurture a passion and to grow in confidence about their future.  Every student will be supported in their intellectual, emotional, social and physical development by a highly professional group of teachers and education support staff.

Consistent with the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (2008) our purpose is to ensure that all Brentwood students have the opportunity to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens.
