Welcome to Coburg High School, a progressive, vibrant and innovative school for the young people of Melbourne’s north.

At Coburg, students are at the centre of our approach to teaching, learning and our decision-making and we hold high expectations of student learning, leadership, participation and inclusion. We have a successful culture of students learning together and supporting and encouraging each other to do their best. We are a technology-rich school with a well documented online curriculum (Coburg Online Google Sites). Our school values of Community, Excellence, Integrity and Curiosity underpin everything that we do.

Coburg High School offers a vast array of opportunities for students both in and out of the classroom. Students are offered an extensive range of excursions, camps and international tours. There is an amazing range of enrichment opportunities to compete in sporting teams; participate in debating and public speaking competitions; perform in productions, musicals and ensembles; exhibit original artworks; develop fluency in languages through overseas exchange programs; explore the humanities; and to develop mathematical and scientific curiosity through excursions, events and our own digital technologies, food and STEAM programs.

Coburg High School is committed to creating a community where all members are welcomed, accepted and treated equitably and with respect, regardless of their backgrounds or personal attributes such as race, language, religious beliefs, gender identity, sexual orientation or disability so that they can participate, achieve and thrive at school. Coburg High School acknowledges and celebrates the diversity of backgrounds and experiences in our school community and we do not tolerate any behaviours, language or practices that disrespect or demean others.

Although this most recent version of Coburg High School has only been operating since 2015, our school has grown rapidly and has an excellent reputation in the local and broader community for our positive approaches to learning and wellbeing. In the 2022 school year, we will have in excess of 1200 students and further growth is expected in coming years. Our NAPLAN results have grown year on year and in 2021 we showed excellent growth in VCE outcomes, with 6.1% of study scores of 40+, compared to 3.2% in 2020. In addition, the results and responses on the annual DET Parent Opinion Survey show that parents are, on the whole, highly satisfied with the school and the positive outcomes in all variables on the survey are well above the state average for schools. You can read more about these and other results in our Annual Report.

For prospective students and parents/carers, I hope that you will find the information on this website useful to you. To students and families who are new to the school, welcome to the next exciting stage in your educational journey.
