Enrolments opened for Year 7 in 2021, increasing by year level in each consecutive year.

Policies on enrolment, placement, and admission are available on the Department of Education and Training website.
The first stage of the new school included:
Futher stages depend on additional funding via future State Budgets. We are planning for:
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.
