High school options aplenty!

High school options aplenty! Image

Southbank families will be pleased to know that the enrolment zone of the new Richmond High School, to open in 2018, takes in Southbank Village.

The school’s 2018 enrolment zone has been set to include Southbank’s low-rise community from Kings Way and Dorcas St up to St Kilda Rd and Southbank Boulevard.

However, Richmond’s zone will change for 2019 enrolment when the new Prahran High School on High St opens its doors. Residents living roughly between Miles St and Dorcas St will then be included in Prahran’s zone.

Collingwood Secondary College currently caters for the remainder of Southbank and this will continue to be the case for the foreseeable future.

However, with two new secondary schools on the horizon and more earmarked for Fishermans Bend in the future, Southbank families will no longer be limited for quality high school options.

The inaugural principal of the new Richmond High School, Colin Simpson, was most recently the principal of the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School (VCASS) on Miles St in Southbank.

He said he was delighted that his new school would serve the Southbank Village community and he encouraged families in need of a quality high schooling option to enroll.

“I am excited to be appointed as the foundation principal of the new Richmond High School, providing incredible opportunities for all children in the Richmond community and other children in our neighbourhood boundary, which extends to Southbank from 2018,” he said.

“In 2019 Richmond High School and Prahran High School will not only return as an education force in their communities but will be a model school for others. Both schools will serve the Southbank community.”

The new Richmond High School, currently being constructed at 280 Highett St, Richmond, will have an initial intake of 100 year seven students in 2018. Both Richmond and Prahran will take in 650 students at full capacity.
