Staughton College has been educating Melton young people for over thirty years. We enjoy spacious school grounds, just a short walk from the Melton Train Station. Simon Staughton and his family were the first settlers in the Melton South district. They travelled from England to start a new life in Victoria when there were no roads or services and few people in the district. After years of pioneering effort, Simon owned tracts of land from Melton to Werribee and left a rich inheritance for his descendent’s.
The Staughton family motto was “Through Industry you progress”. We are proud to build on the Staughton pioneering spirit of perseverance and achievement here at Staughton College. Our school motto is Try – Persevere – Achieve. This is a snapshot of our philosophy. It reminds all of us in our College community that learning involves a series of steps. These steps seem simple but they are essential if we want to grow as people – not just now, but throughout our lives.
We expect and value parent support for school programs and policies in helping to maintain a working, productive environment. The potential, creativity and spirit of our young people continue to be an inspiration and a source of confidence in the future.
Their commitment to achieving high academic results while being fine citizens of the school community, the support of families and the talents and dedication of our staff make Staughton College a great place to come to every day.
Our motto Try Persevere Achieve forms the basis of the idea that each student is provided with the opportunity at Staughton College to try, develop and grow intellectually, physically and emotionally over their time at the school.
We encourage perseverance and see it as the pathway to achievement. Our year 7 – 12, coeducational, single-campus school provides a friendly environment where boys and girls of all ages can learn to live and work together.
All learn about socially responsible and respectful behaviour, about courtesy, about the way we should treat each other and about accepting responsibility for one’s actions. Our Rights and responsibilities are based on respect, learn and safety
