Our Learning Commons

At Coburg High School we have a purpose-built contemporary learning environment that centres around learning commons and specialist classrooms.

Our learning commons—with fewer walls than traditional classrooms—enable high levels of differentiation of student learning to cater to the needs, interests and aspirations of individual students. Our learning commons foster teacher collaboration through team-based curriculum planning, teaching and assessment and foster a sense of community by ensuring that our learning and teaching is shared and that we care for and respect each other.

Our science laboratories, music rooms, and some art rooms are enclosed and our drama and dance studio (the Space) and the theatrette provide substantial performance and presentation spaces.

Smaller conference rooms are incorporated into the design of the school and provide private spaces for individual or small group study, meetings, and counselling services.

We have a large gymnasium, numerous basketball courts and a workout gym and weights room.
