Brunswick Secondary College is a co-educational Years 7 to 12 college. While its students are drawn from Brunswick and Coburg, an overall population of 970 allows for the enrolment of some students from outside this area. The college has a Select Entry Accelerated Learning Program, an English Language Centre located on site, a Chinese Language specialist program and an increasing community of international students. It achieves strong VCE results. In 2014 the median study score was 32.

Facilities: A million-dollar multi-purpose synthetic sports ground, used by Brunswick Hockey Club in the evenings and on weekends, acts as a centrepiece. The school is building a new double court sized gymnasium, expected completion date is Term 3 2015. A $10 million grant will be used to expand performing arts facilities, build change rooms and create a VCE  Learning Area. An indigenous garden, sailed area and kitchen garden provide attractive outdoor learning spaces. Classrooms are well cared for and displays of student work throughout the school add colour and vibrancy.

Curriculum: The college offers discipline-based curriculum complemented by a wide range of specialist subjects and enrichment programs. The focus is on providing successful pathways for all students. In order to achieve this, students first need to understand themselves as learners and identify areas that they find fulfilling and in which they excel. Students are supported to achieve strong academic results and are encouraged to develop areas of interest outside their core academic curriculum that add extra value to their school lives. There is a social and emotional learning and study program to support students as they progress through each year level.  The main focus at BrunswickSecondaryCollege is nurturing the unique needs and talents of each student.

Sport: The college offers a wide range of sport for boys and girls and has achieved success at the state level in hockey, soccer and table tennis in recent years, including a number of state titles in the latter.

Extra-curricular activities: The many co–curricular activities available to students at the school include highly respected programs in instrumental music and dance. BrunswickSecondaryCollege also has high levels of participation and success in a range of state and national competitions. Brunswick Secondary College students enjoy participating in the many interest-based clubs offered at the school. These include chess, philosophy, design, art, Kendo, book club, science club, mindfulness, environment club, peer support and social justice. We find that it is through this more unbounded learning that students discover and hone their special interests and talents. The school also has draw card Performing Arts and Media programs.
