At Coburg High School we acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we learn and work, the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin nation, and we pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
Our purpose-built and contemporary learning environment centres around dynamic classrooms, flexible learning commons, specialist spaces and beautiful grounds.
In 2019 we completed the second stage of our school renovations and celebrated the opening our new Learning Resource Centre with the Minister for Education.

Our learning commons and classrooms enable high levels of differentiation of student learning to cater to the needs, interests and aspirations of individual students. We foster teacher collaboration through team-based curriculum planning, teaching and assessment and promote a sense of community by ensuring that our learning and teaching is shared and that we mutually care for and respect each other.
We have multipurpose and adaptive learning areas:
- Individual classrooms
- Team-teaching spaces
- Learning commons
- Breakout rooms
In addition, our science laboratories, music rooms, and some art rooms are enclosed and our drama and dance studio (the Space) and the theatrette provide high quality performance and presentation spaces. Our new library provides a state-of-the-art study space and reading collection.
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 also have a large gymnasium, fitness studio, and numerous outdoor courts–including four new courts funded through Sport & Recreation Victoria as part of the Inner City Netball program–and we are in close proximity to various sporting facilities here in Merri-bek and in the City of Melbourne.
