New Cobblebank Campus

A new era in Catholic secondary education in Melton is about to begin.

St Francis Catholic College's Cobblebank Campus will open in 2023.

It will welcome approximately 150 Year 7 students at the start of the school year and grow to accommodate 1500 Year 7 to 12 students by 2028.

Drawing on the rich history and strong foundations established in the past 40 years at the College, Cobblebank will offer new facilities and educational opportunities for the growing population in Melbourne’s north-west corridor.

Our College is recognised for its focus on faith, wellbeing and inclusive learning pathways – all of which will be offered to a new generation of St Francis Catholic College students at Cobblebank Campus.

Principal’s Message

It is with great pleasure that St Francis Catholic College will open its second campus in Bridge Road, Cobblebank, in 2023.

The College (formerly Catholic Regional College Melton) has provided quality Catholic secondary education to families in the western suburbs of Melbourne since 1980. Continued population growth has put considerable pressure on enrolments at our Melton West campus in Bulmans Road. 

The exciting development of Cobblebank Campus will see our established wellbeing and learning structures offered in a new contemporary educational space.

Stage 1 include science facilities, design and technology rooms and collaborative learning areas.

St Francis Catholic College prides itself on providing a welcoming and supportive environment that caters to all students’ needs. Our second campus will embrace this focus to provide students with a faith-based education that develops the whole person. 

Marlene Jorgensen - Principal

I look forward to sharing the journey towards the opening of our new campus with you and your family.

Learning spaces

Our new Cobblebank campus has been designed to complement the Melton South landscape while incorporating our Catholic identity and modern, state-of-the-art facilities.

Stage 1 features a two-level, general-purpose building with generous classrooms and breakout zones with varied seating for collaborative learning. Administration offices and a staff room and teacher work areas are also accommodated. Each level includes 1500 square metres of floor space with flexible, light-filled, co-joined rooms that can be opened to create larger areas.

Our specialist facilities are housed in a second two-level building with music and drama rooms on the ground floor and science and art facilities on the first floor.

A key design feature of the new College is a landscaped cloister that forms the heart of the school. Surrounded by buildings and pathways, the area provides shelter from the elements and a place for students and staff to meet, talk, learn and gather. A landscaped walking path around the College grounds also provides students and staff with easy access to all areas of the site.

Stage 1 of construction will enable the College to cater for 600 students with further stages planned as intake progresses.

Stage 2 will see the construction of our creative hub which will cater for Food Technology, Materials Technology (wood and metal), Art, Visual Communication and Design and Media classes. It will include a hospitality kitchen and dining area and spaces dedicated to robotics, STEM and project-based learning.
