The Victorian Government committed to opening 100 new schools between 2019 and 2026, ensuring every child can attend a great local school. This includes the new Port Melbourne Secondary College, which will open in 2022.
Anne Stout has been appointed as the new principal of this school. See the drop-down below for more information.
Port Melbourne Secondary College was previously known by its interim name, Fishermans Bend Secondary School, during the planning phase.
The state-of-the-art school will have an enrolment capacity of 1,100 students. It will showcase environmentally-sustainable design and feature high-tech amenities, including a fabrication lab and robotics workshop. The school will also have a strong focus on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths). There will also be an array of arts, food technology, sports and Learning Resource Centre spaces that can be shared with the community.
