Collingwood College

Collingwood College is an internationally accredited state school offering Prep to Year 12 education to students from the inner-city and many other suburbs of Melbourne.

The College offers educational programs to meet a range of individual needs, a diverse school community and an outstanding teaching and learning environment.

The College recently celebrated its 125th anniversary with the publication of a book, The School on the Flat - Collingwood College 1882-2007. This publication was researched and written by historian John Young, a retired researcher from the National Centre for Australian Studies at Monash University.

Steiner Education


Steiner education is a unique and distinctive approach to educating children that is practised in Steiner schools worldwide.

Steiner schools are known for teachers' care and dedication as well as their demand for, and their students' achievement of, high personal, artistic and academic excellence.

The community aspect is also stressed, with the parents and teachers striving to cooperate for the good of the children. Throughout the Steiner stream teachers and parents strive to help the children develop their capacities, appropriate at each age, which will enrich and enable their growing connections with the world outside themselves.

Steiner thought that schools should cater to the needs of children rather than the demands of the government or economic forces, so he developed schools that encourage creativity and free-thinking. Steiner and a small group of teachers worked to develop a philosophy, curriculum and methodology of teaching that was firmly child based and that allowed for the child's individual development in a social and world cultural context.

Collingwood College has adapted the Class Teacher system to its very own setting of Junior School (Classes 1 - 5), Middle School (6 - 8) and High School (9 - 10).
