The striking, six-storey, stepped building design features a series of outdoor terraces, balconies and rooftop spaces. These outdoor areas will maximise opportunities for active sport, recreation, social connection, contemplation, learning, daylight and fresh air.
Diverse learning precincts throughout the campus will provide specialist settings for performing arts, art and design, technology, science, food, resources centre and sports. Connections between precincts and general learning hubs on each level will foster learning across different subjects and disciplines – known as ‘interdisciplinary learning’.
We have designed flexible facilities and learning environments that support the schools’ ‘futures-thinking’ curriculum and help prepare students for ’jobs not yet invented’.
Key features include the campus:
performing arts precinct with amphitheatre, music hub, adaptable project space, music practice rooms, green room, drama and performing arts spaces
technology precinct with digital design, technology design lab, fabrication studios, project exhibition space, small group spaces, breakout and individual study areas
food precinct with canteen, student dining area, food technology learning area, food technology outdoor terrace and garden, laundry and preparation facilities

Collingwood College and Fitzroy High School are pleased to announce that Chris Millard is the successful candidate for the role of Campus Principal (Assistant Principal) for the new Fitzroy Gasworks (Senior Campus) - Collingwood College and Fitzroy High School.
His appointment follows a competitive recruitment and selection process, jointly managed by Sam Luck, Principal of Collingwood College and Linda Mitchell, Principal of Fitzroy High School. Chris's role, which begins in Term 1 2021, will be to build on the collaboration and continuous improvement of both schools, and to oversee the continued joint provision of the senior secondary programs.
From 2022, Chris will manage the new campus, along with continuing to build a culture of innovation and excellence that benefits all students.
The campus will be located at the old Fitzroy Gasworks site. The Fitzroy Gasworks is an important part of Fitzroy North's industrial and social heritage, and the school is part of an important urban renewal project to re-energise the site.
This larger project by Development Victoria will rejuvenate an iconic inner-city site and create positive outcomes for the local community. The site is close to public transport, open space and established community facilities.
