Armidale Secondary College is the combination of two schools with a long and proud history and is a school that will strive to foster in all young people the ability to collaborate, reflect critically, communicate and express themselves creatively, while developing a strong sense of community engagement and global responsibility.
We are not just preparing learners for future pathways in the 21st Century, but also to open our thinking to see the possibilities for innovation and to inspire learners to create their own unique opportunities for the future.
At Armidale Secondary College, the personalised learning needs of all young people will be realised via a highly-differentiated curriculum which will be a feature of our middle-school model. A student advisory program will be a central tenet in the social and emotional aspects of learning and will see every student supported on a daily basis by a member of staff known as a learning adviser.
Our programs will be supported by contemporary resources and the latest research on teaching and learning. Students will build their skills, self-confidence, leadership abilities and community spirit through a rigorous but rich and varied curricular and co-curricular program.
The Armidale Secondary College vision statement of ‘Our Future, Our Learning’ reflects a commitment to an environment that will create strong and open partnerships between our students, home, staff, community and local industry, training and further education providers.
Armidale Secondary College is committed to all members of the school community working together to provide a safe, caring and responsive learning environment. Such a learning culture can be developed when based on the core expectations of ‘Respect, Responsibility and Resilience’.
