Simonds Catholic College is a secondary Catholic school for boys.  With approximately 500 students, we operate across two inner city campuses in West Melbourne and Fitzroy North.  Our size allows us to limit the number of students in each classroom, whilst still being able to offer a broad curriculum.  Supported by modern technology our junior students have an opportunity to explore their interests across academic, cultural, religious, technological and sporting dimensions, while VCE, VCAL and VET Pathways are available to our senior students.  At Simonds Catholic College we realise that each student is unique and their different needs and talents are nurtured through both support and extension programs.  The combination of these factors means that our students are provided with an exceptional learning environment where each student is known, supported and challenged.

Principal's Message

Simonds Catholic College is a two-campus Catholic secondary school for boys in the inner city of Melbourne. Our small size (500 boys in Years 7-12) means that each boy can be individually known, valued and have a sense of belonging. The excellent facilities enable us to offer a broad and exciting curriculum within the setting of a small school. Our close proximity to the beautiful St Mary’s Church at West Melbourne, and St Brigid’s Church in Fitzroy North, means that boys are provided with frequent opportunities to reflect, pray and celebrate the Sacraments in an inspiring and historical religious setting.

The St Mary’s Years 7-10 Campus is located in Victoria Street, West Melbourne, whilst the St Brigid’s VCE Campus is located on the corner of Nicholson Street and Alexander Parade, Fitzroy North. Both campuses are very well served by public transport. Simonds Catholic College is a member of the Associated Catholic Colleges competition.

To increase the learning opportunities of our students we deliberately limit the number of students in each class. There is a maximum class size of 22-24 students in Years 7-10. The average VCE class size is 14-15 students. These small class sizes facilitate the development of a culture of learning. Years 7-10 are issued with an iPad so as to provide students with opportunities to access the curriculum through 21st century technologies.

Over several years we have been developing a staff that has excellent professional qualifications and is committed to providing a high standard of education in an environment of mutual support. Our teachers are most generous in their commitment of time and share a concern for the pastoral needs of appropriate benchmarks and standards in regard to their studies, student progress is closely monitored to ensure that every student is given the opportunity to reach his full potential and 'be the best that he can be’.

Simonds Catholic College is an excellent school that provides high quality programs to students with a spiritual, academic, social, sporting and cultural dimension. I commend it to you for your consideration as a school that will provide a quality education within a caring environment. If you would like further information about the school and its suitability for your son, or if you would like to have a tour of our school’s facilities, please contact the College on 9321 9200.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Peter Riordan
