Located in a rapidly developing outer suburb in Melbourne’s south east, Officer Secondary College is designed to build strong community connections, and provide technology enabled, differentiated learning environments that support personalised, student-centred learning.

Six learning communities provide a diversity of spaces that will support different modes of learning. Large collaborative spaces can accommodate up to 50 students, and are connected to informal, social and creative learning areas.

Exceptional master planning of the Officer Secondary College supports the approach of strong community connections through display of multiple entries and articulated forms generating a series of ‘connected communities’.
