Why it’s worth checking out Skillset Senior College.

We like to say we focus on individual wellbeing and personal achievement, and to prove it we are celebrating our first group of students commencing Year 12, as the original year 10 of 2015 progress through to the commencement of their final year of schooling.

“It is a very exciting milestone, both for the school and the students” says Principal Craig Randazzo, “we are an innovative school set in an adult learning environment with small class sizes and this is clearly a model that really suits our students.”

The school now has 50 students and employs 8 staff, with the average class size no larger than 15. The Year 12 students are doing a range of HSC subjects including Ancient History, Information Processing Technology, Agriculture, Spanish, Legal and Community and Family Studies.

Next year the school will have Years 10, 11 & 12 students for the first time, with total student numbers of 75. The school has also recently been advised it has been successful in securing a federal government grant of $140,000 which will be used over the next few months to provide additional facilities for the increased student numbers next year.

“We are very excited to get this funding to support the work we are doing here at the College. We are fulfilling a real need in the community for a smaller, alternative school model and it is immensely gratifying to be able to help young people in this way. We are currently taking enrolments for Year 10 for next year and encourage anyone who thinks Skillset Senior College may be for them to get in touch with us,” said Manager of Skillset Education Abbey Barrett.
