Senior School (Year 7-10)

What better site could be found for a boys' secondary school than one that has a bushland environment of 30 hectares on a riverside property?

The senior school campus is located at Austins Ferry on an enviable site with expansive grounds and views.

Our boys have the best in learning facilities while also having plenty of space to burn off their energy and participate in active pursuits so important for boys.

This is a College which caters very deliberately for the learning and development needs of boys.

The Austins Ferry site caters for around 650 boys from Year 7 to 10. From 2023 the College will embark upon another stage of its long and proud history with the re-introduction of Year 11, with Year 12 to follow in 2024.* This will provide students at the College with a seamless Kindergarten to Year 12 Catholic boys' education, all delivered by teachers who understand the learning needs and challenges of boys. 

Specialist facilities in Music, Drama, Food Technology, Metalwork, Woodwork, Physical Education, Information Technology and Science provide the environment necessary for boys to experience the stimulating education offered by a committed staff. These facilities will be expanded in preparation for 2023 with construction of additional general learning areas, a dedicated senior school, expanded music and performing arts spaces, consolidated student services area and additions to the College's outstanding sporting and recreation facilities. 

A well equipped Library Resource Centre supplies the research needs of students, and those requiring some extra assistance in their core studies.

Such generous grounds allow for ample oval spaces together with areas for Agricultural Studies and studies of the environment. The College is particularly committed to the rehabilitation and enhancement of its natural bush heritage.


Library

The St Virgil's Library is the information hub of the College.

The staff firmly believe that the role of the Library is changing rapidly and is dedicated to keeping pace with evolving trends, and in doing so ensuring that the Library continues to be a relevant and valuable part of the school community, as well as being a friendly and vibrant space for the students to enjoy!

The collection is maintained and added to with the needs of the students in mind – in order to fully resource their curriculum requirements, as well as keeping a well-stocked, carefully chosen fiction section to ensure the students are allowed the benefits of reading for pleasure as well! This is in line with the Literacy programme run by the College.
