Founded in 2007, Coburg Senior High School is a new school that has been created to provide significant senior school options for students from a wide geographical area. It specialises in maths, science and the visual and performing arts. It is a school where students are encouraged to bring their iPods and mobile phones as podcasts and other digital formats underpin the manner in which students work across all subjects. The school’s motto is “Smart Learning”.

Facilities: The school delivers 21st-century learning in an open-plan adult environment. Purpose-built to deliver this new learning approach, Coburg Senior High School has specialist facilities in Science and the Performing Arts with high-end Apple technologies distributed throughout the Learning Commons.

Curriculum: Coburg Senior High School offers Year 10 through to VCE curriculum options. As part of the VCE offerings, students have the option to complete VET, VCAL and an Australian School-Based Apprenticeship as part of their pathway. This is a school that functions as a workplace of learning rather than the usual school environment. It is focused on successful outcomes and pathways for students.

Student welfare programs: Coburg Senior High School is an adult learning environment where a mentor program supports students on an educational, social and emotional level.
