About the project

We built a new junior secondary campus for Bass Coast College in San Remo, which opened in January 2022. 

The new Years 7–9 campus is able to enrol up to 500 students, and has added to the college's two existing campuses (including the recently opened Wonthaggi Campus).


  • a 'Welcome and Wellbeing Centre', which consists of administration and library spaces and reflects the importance of holistic student development with strong wellbeing support
  • a learning base and innovation neighbourhood consisting of classroom spaces that are innovative and adaptable
  • a specialist building where science, technology and design learning takes place in a collaborative setting
  • a community and health building, which consists of a performing arts and physical education area (which includes an indoor play court), and a food technology space and canteen, which can be accessible for local community events
  • an oval
  • 4 outdoor play courts.

School naming

The school was previously known by Wonthaggi Secondary College. We consulted with the community on Bass Coast College name from 11 February to 4 March 2021. This new name more accurately reflects the school's unique identity, inspires local pride, and makes the school easily locatable across its three campuses. 

Community and design consultation

We engaged with students, teachers, parents and community members from the Bass Coast community from 23 May to 14 June 2019, on current education options, priorities and the best location for a new school facility. In particular, we wanted to know where the school should be located, what the community feels are the most important factors when choosing a school, as well as what current secondary schools parents are considering for their children.

In October 2019, we engaged with students, teachers, parents and community members from San Remo, Phillip Island and the surrounding area, gathering their input to help design the new junior secondary campus in San Remo. We used an online survey and held a community drop-in consultation event.

You can contact us for a copy of the reports from both consultations.


In the 2019–20 State Budget, this school shared in $624.8 million allocated for new schools. In 2020, the school received a further $5 million in funding.

In the 2020–21 State Budget, the school received at least $25.76 million.
