The Anglican Schools Commission is excited to announce plans to build Shepparton’s first Anglican school. The new Anglican school will be built on a 16-hectare site on Verney Road in Shepparton North, and will cater for students from Preparatory to Year 12. The school will be co-educational and low-fee. Our schools are inclusive and diverse communities, where students of all faiths and none are warmly welcomed.
The Anglican Schools Commission has schools across Australia, including two nearby in Wangaratta and Cobram. We’re committed to investing in the Greater Shepparton community, creating local jobs during the construction phases and employing around 150 staff when the school reaches capacity.
The Anglican Schools Commission is a strong system of schools, providing ongoing support for our existing schools and developing new schools across Victoria and beyond. Over the next decade or so, we plan to invest around $50 million into building our Shepparton school.
Regional Victoria is an area of priority for the Anglican Schools Commission. We are the education provider to the Diocese of Wangaratta, with schools in Cobram and Wangaratta, and another school just over the border in Albury.
As the major population centre of the region, with projected future population growth, Shepparton is a natural choice for a new school. We aim to provide a high quality schooling option for families in Shepparton and surrounding communities.
The Anglican Schools Commission has purchased a 16-hectare site at 320 Verney Road in Shepparton North, approximately 6km from the Shepparton town centre. The site is easily accessible by the school bus network.
WHAT WE WILL DELIVER
The new school will educate students from Prep to Year 12, opening in 2024*. Growth will be staged, starting with Prep to Year 7 and increasing by a year level annually until 2029. Tuition fees in 2024 are planned to be in the range of $3000-$4000 per year in primary and $5000-$5500 per year in Year 7.
THE JOURNEY HAS BEGUN!
Over the next two years we will plan and build the school ready to open in January 2024 for Prep to Year 7.
