About Us

Our History

Staughton College has been educating Melton young people for over thirty years. We enjoy spacious school grounds, just a short walk from Melton 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 descendents.

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.

The College provides structures to support a transition from Primary school including core rooms and core teachers. Our experience is that it doesn’t take long before students feel confident and comfortable at school. This is a very important first step.

We also have high expectations of our students’ learning. Around those high expectations, we build structure, teaching practice, organisation and procedures. We expect students to take on the challenge of continuously improving upon their learning and participating in the broad range of programs and extra-curricular activities on offer. This is supported by continuous evaluation and improvement of subjects, courses of study, and the way in which teaching and learning occurs. The academic achievements of our students are exemplified by their VCE results, VCAL completion and the tertiary, further education and training pathways they take up after graduation.

Try Persevere Achieve

Our motto 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.
