McClelland College is a progressive Year 7 to 12 college located in the Bayside suburb of Frankston and is surrounded by extensive parkland reserves. A partnership with the nearby McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park provided the impetus for a change of name for the former Karingal Park Secondary College. This change occurred at the end of 2008, along with the development of a new uniform, and signified the achievements of the college resulting from the journey that had been embarked on in recent years, in the quest for continuous improvement. McClelland College draws from a number of small primary schools and runs a comprehensive program with excellent breadth of curriculum provision, as well as ample opportunities for elective-based involvements for its students.

Facilities: Over the past four years, McClelland College has made a commitment to respond to the learning needs of the students and has undertaken wide-ranging and significant changes. Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 have access to dedicated learning centres staffed by teams of teachers who know the students well as learners and as individuals. The focus in these centres is on team-based professional practice and flexible and responsive curriculum delivery. This approach has led to greatly improved student attitudes to school data, as well as “value adding” to learning as measured by NAPLAN testing, which exceeded that of the state measure. The college also has a recently built Senior Centre, Information Commons and VCAL Learning Centre. The hallmark of each of these spaces is flexibility, student-centred learning and high-end information technology access. For 2012, a key focus across the college has been on the further development of strong personal learning behaviours for students, and the introduction of a one-to-one netbook program in Years 9 to 12.
