Brauer College is a high performing secondary school located in Warrnambool, Victoria. Warrnambool is a provincial city in the southwest of the state with a population of 33,000. The College has spacious and attractive grounds, which provide a safe and secure environment for the facilities that support the extensive range of curricular and co-curricular programs offered across the two campuses, Warrnambool and our Grampian outdoor education centre at Dunkeld.
Brauer College promotes excellence in every individual. Student learning and individual student growth is our core educative purpose with values of respect, responsibility and participation underpinning our work. The dynamic learning environment enables all students to develop academically, socially, physically and emotionally.
The College provides an innovative Year 7 curriculum program with an enhancement program to cater for students with high intellectual abilities. A vertical curriculum has enabled students to accelerate in areas which they are strong, consolidate in areas where they are less able and to specialize in areas which they have a particular interest.
There is a strong focus on student leadership and students lead activities in the College and student achievements are regularly celebrated. Student support is provided through a strong and positive pastoral care program and a student wellbeing Centre including a ‘Doctors in School’ program all of which are supported by a student Wellbeing Team. This support is among the many social and emotional development programs implemented to ensure that students remain resilient, happy individuals who feel connected to their school and community. Students have an extensive co-curricular program to engage them, including a highly acclaimed Music program, an extensive array of sporting academies, public speaking and leadership opportunities. There is significant interest in our post compulsory programs with strong enrolments in VET, VCAL and University courses offered through our Tertiary Partnerships.
Our strategic intent is to support students to learn effectively and to develop positive attitudes and behaviours. We endeavour to provide a learning environment that will nurture personal development and establish a strong connection to the College
