ABOUT THE PROJECT
Richmond High School will cater for 650 Year 7-12 students, and make a significant contribution to the area's educational and community life.
We are building the school over two sites. The Griffiths St Campus will be the home for a striking academic precinct that puts the student learning experience at its core.
The adjacent Gleadell St Campus will comprise of general purpose teaching spaces, four competition-grade netball courts and community facilities.
We are opening the school in two stages.
The first cohort of Year 7 students will begin in Term 1, 2018, and will be taught at the the
Gleadell St Campus.
Griffiths St Campus will open in Term 1, 2019 for the second cohort of Year 7 students and students moving into Year 8.
Being located in the heart of Richmond, the school will have great transport options and is close to existing community infrastructure and services.
The VSBA is working closely with other precinct stakeholders including the City of Yarra, Lynall Hall Community School, Richmond Multicultural Children's Centre, Leo Berry's Boxing Gym, Gleadell Street Market Traders and the Richmond Union Bowls Club to ensure that their needs are considered throughout construction.
