About our school:

Situated in the picturesque Redlynch Valley and catering for students from Prep to Year Twelve, Redlynch State College has a proud history of academic success, sporting prowess, community support and parent involvement. We see education as a three way partnership between teachers, students and their parents as we aim to ensure that every student experiences a curriculum that focuses on their future and prepares them for success. Our dedicated and professional teaching team shares our college vision ‘Learning in our Valley, Thinking beyond the Hills' and this is supported by our school-wide pedagogy of Relationships, Success, Connections, Equity and Quality (RSCEQ) which underpins the learning activities we as a College provide.

Redlynch State College is spread across two modern campuses, separated by parking and drop off zones. Students in Prep to Year Six attend the junior campus where our experienced staff provide strong foundations in literacy and numeracy in a secure and supportive environment. Our senior campus hosts the junior secondary (Years 7-9) and senior secondary (Years 10-12) phases of learning, with experienced staff and state of the art facilities supporting a curriculum that leads to a successful transition for all students to further education, training or employment upon graduating in Year 12.
