Our Principal

Welcome to Buckley Park College


Buckley Park College opened in 1963, in a world very different to today. Over many years the school has established itself and become a vital member of the Essendon and district community. We are proud of our school and what we offer our students.  


What do we offer our community? Opportunity.


Enrolling at Buckley Park gives our students the opportunity to learn, question, develop and grow into young adults ready to take on the world. A world that changes fast and rewards those who take on the challenges of the future. Our school motto ‘Build Your Wings’ pays homage to our past but also gives us direction as teachers and students – working together we can lay the foundations for a great future.


We offer a comprehensive curriculum designed to challenge students from Year 7 to Year 12. Whether your child wants to excel in art or mathematics or science or literature or sport, there is something here for everyone. As teachers we work with each student to find the best pathway for them to personal academic success. The college achieves excellent Naplan and VCE results each year. This is the result of hard work from staff and students in a collaborative academically focussed environment.


Our extra-curricular offerings are amazing and further present opportunities for our students to grow. Spend some time on our website or social media feeds and you will discover the broad and rich curriculum that is our school.


It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Buckley Park community; our local school.
