For 50 years we have provided young people with diverse experiences in a caring community. The passion of our staff in providing students with the opportunities to chase their dreams is what sets us apart.
Set on beautiful large grounds, Patterson River is adjacent to the Kananook Creek and Seaford Wetlands and within walking distance to the beach and a range of local sporting fields. The College has numerous partnerships with local community groups, seeing itself as an important hub of the local community.
Patterson River prides itself on recruiting high performing staff who match the values of the school: Respect, Engagement, Success; along with providing staff with excellent on-going professional development and training.
In recent times, the College has seen these efforts reap rewards through significant improvement in VCE results. In addition, the school consistently sees Student Attitudes to School Survey results that puts us in the top 5% of secondary schools and NAPLAN 7-9 growth that is up to double the state mean growth.
We offer students a diverse range of co-curricular activities in modern facilities such as our brand new Performing Arts Centre and Stadium. Patterson River about to begin construction on a new Senior School Centre and STEM Lab.
It is difficult to describe the full array of opportunities and brilliance of our College, therefore I encourage you to take the time to meet in person. Tours are held each Thursday at 9.45am (bookings essential). Alternatively you can speak to the office to organise a personalised tour.
I look forward to meeting you and your family.
Mr Daniel Dew
