Armstrong Creek Development

The Victorian Government made a commitment to deliver 100 new schools between 2019 and 2026. This school, to open in 2021, was part of this commitment. We are moving Oberon High School to the Armstrong Creek Education Precinct.
 
The college will be located in the precinct, next to the Armstrong Creek School, a combined primary and specialist school.
 
We’re planning the new college for 1,100 students, which will ​help alleviate enrolment pressures for surrounding schools and meet the ​​demand of a booming population. 
The relocation stemmed from a Department of Education and Training​ review to improve school provision in Geelong.​ 

School Details:

155-175 Batten Road , Armstrong Creek 3217

Funding:

In the 2018-19 State Budget, $3.9 million was allocated to the school. In the 2019-20 State Budget, the school shared in $624.8 million allocated for new schools.

Funding Type:

New School

 

Enrolment Zones

As you may be aware the Find My School website has been launched. The website displays the current zones for Oberon High, Belmont High and Grovedale College and not the future zones.  As a school we are often asked for clarification regarding the enrolment zone for the school, given our relocation to Armstrong Creek for the beginning of the 2021 school year.

 I would like to assure you that enrolment options for 2020 are the same as 2019 and students will be able to either:

  • enrol in Year 7 at Oberon High School and remain at the school when it relocates to the new Armstrong Creek site (any siblings wishing to also enrol at Oberon High School in the future would be considered as a priority); or
  • enrol in Year 7 at either Belmont High School or Grovedale College if that school will become their future zoned school when the new secondary school at Armstrong Creek opens.​

The find my school website will be updated at the commencement of 2020 to reflect the future zones for 2021
