It is with great pleasure that we welcome our new 2021 students to Seaford Secondary College.
Students learn best in an environment where they feel safe, expectations are high and a strong sense of community exists. As a school we have high standards for the behaviour of all students. We work hard as a staff to implement proactive strategies for our students to support them to make positive choices. Your partnership and support of these processes in appreciated and maximises the outcomes for your child.
The 2021 placement of your child has been undertaken carefully to ensure their learning outcomes are maximised. Our absolute priority is to provide your child with a learning environment that will challenge and empower them to become the best they can be. Your child’s classroom and House placement is crucial in ensuring learning outcomes are achieved.

We have a variety of processes in place to allow for a smooth transition for students on their journey to, and time at, Seaford Secondary College.
For students transitioning from our 'feeder' primary schools, the process begins with a visit to Seaford Secondary College the year before they enrol at our school. This is usually early in term 1. Our year 9 students run a number of tours for all students who are likely to be transitioning.
During September and October our Student Wellbeing Leader and Senior Leader Learning Support visit feeder primary schools in order to gather information about transitioning students in terms of individual learning needs, interests and friendship groups. This information is carefully used to allocate classes for the following year.
Towards the end of the year we run a Parent Information Evening and also host an Orientation Day for our transitioning students, so that they can become fully familiar with our school.
We also run a Transition Program for our year 9 students in order to prepare them for their move into year 10 and the senior school. Here, students take some classes in their new care groups, and Houses, and work with their future teachers.
Students who enrol with us during the course of the year are also transitioned smoothly. We run pre–enrolment meetings in order to meet parents and caregivers and gather information for each new student. We use this information to make a considered care group placement, cater for individual learning needs and introduce each new student to a suitable “buddy”.
