The Victorian Government made a commitment to deliver
100 new schools between 2019 and 2026. This includes Cranbourne West Secondary College.
Rob Duncan has been appointed as the
first principal. Enrolments are now open for Year 7 in 2021. For more enrolment information, please email Rob.Duncan@education.vic.gov.au .
Further information on the school, including enrolment, can be found on its official Facebook page.
Enrolments are open for Year 7 in 2021.
Intake of students in 2021 will be limited to Year 7 to ensure smooth transition into the new school community.
Findmyschool.vic.gov.au has been updated to show school zones for 2021. This includes the zone for Cranbourne West Secondary College.
Policies on enrolment, placement, and admission are available on the Department of Education and Training website.
The first stage of the new school includes:
the visual arts building
a learning community
the science, technology, engineering and maths building
an administration building
a sports oval
two outdoor play courts.
Futher stages depend on additional funding via future State Budgets. We are planning for:
two additional learning communities
a performing arts and physical education building
another two outdoor play courts.
When we complete these future stages, the school will have places for up to 1,100 mainstream and 100 specialist students.
Cranbourne West Secondary College is a supported inclusion school. This means the school has been designed to support a higher number of students with a disability than a typical mainstream school. Included in the school design are facilities that provide additional support, so that all students have access to the same learning and play spaces.
These additional facilities include:
additional spaces throughout the school that could be used as consultation rooms
an enhanced accessible toilet (where a hoist could be installed if needed)
a project/kitchen space where kids with special eating requirements can be accommodated
an additional fitness room for therapeutic use

Cranbourne West Secondary College was chosen as the school name following community consultation and discussions with Geographic Names Victoria, with consideration given to factors including public interest, relevance to the local area, and the consideration of local Indigenous languages.
The school is named
after the suburb it is located in. This is the first new secondary college to
be built in Cranbourne West.
We consulted with local communities for three weeks from Wednesday 24 June to Wednesday 15 July 2020. Thank you for your input.
