The new Beaumaris Secondary College was developed on the site of the old Sandringham College Beaumaris Campus, via a unique partnership between the Victorian School Building Authority (VSBA) and Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC). Our objective was to provide a dynamic 21st Century learning environment that redefines and celebrates the essence of education on the site and provides integral connections to the local context and community.
Designed to provide a welcoming civic presence and to promote community involvement and engagement, the school has become a focal point for the local community to gather and connect.
The multi-level Learning Hub, provides a welcoming entry to the school, incorporating a double height administration and resource centre, specialist facilities and general learning spaces that feature vertical connections and activation, supporting the development of a strong community of learners.
Designed for shared school and community use, Activity Centre comprises a Games Hall, Canteen, Performance Centre with tiered seating and outdoor stage, and Food Technology learning space and servery.
Extensive state-of-the-art recreational facilities include two specialist high performance ovals for cricket, AFL and AFLW, a multi-purpose pitch incorporating a FIFA Grade 1 soccer pitch, and a Sports Pavilion with change rooms and gathering spaces, designed to be utilised by the school during school hours and local community sporting groups after hours and on weekends.
