Our School

Buckley Park College has provided exceptional learning opportunities to students from Essendon and surrounding suburbs since 1963.  “Build Your Wings”, the school motto, symbolises the important role the school plays in nurturing the academic and personal development that prepares young people for successful and happy futures. Many former students have gone on to become leaders within industry, the professions and the community.

Buckley Park College is a medium sized, single campus, co-educational school for students from years 7 to 12. Large enough to offer a challenging and diverse curriculum, the school is small enough to foster individual development.

At Buckley Park College students have a comprehensive and cohesive learning experience. The knowledge, skills and understandings they require to successfully progress and go on to further study are systematically developed over the course of their secondary education. At every step, highly qualified and committed teachers challenge, encourage and support students to achieve high academic results in both core and co-curricular programs while fostering their growth into adulthood and citizenship.

The school’s commitment to ongoing professional development of teachers ensures that learning remains vibrant and relevant to the world which students will enter after graduating.
