Dual campus college model in Palmerston

Two campuses, one leadership team, one college to create the secondary school of choice in Palmerston.

Rosebery Middle School and Palmerston Senior College are working towards forming a dual campus college from Term 1, 2018.

The dual campus college will provide Palmerston families with a contemporary, competitive and high quality education services, including clear and continuous learning pathways and specialisation, consistently high expectations and experiences, and longer term relationships from Year 7 to Year 12. 

The focus is on improving student engagement and outcomes through:

  • an aligned school improvement plan and focus on sustained improvement in student outcomes across both campuses
  • a consistent and wider range of curricular and extracurricular programs across both campuses
  • strong transition partnerships with primary schools to develop positive relationships with students that will continue across both middle years and senior years campuses
  • providing students, parents and the community with continuity of education from Year 7 to Year 12, through the development of a shared vision, mission, expectations and practices across both campuses.

The college will also provide teachers and support staff with greater opportunity for professional growth and shared networking across both campuses.
