The College's aim is to provide a safe, supportive and friendly learning environment for over 1400 students in year 11 and 12. Launceston College offers a comprehensive program of all eight learning areas and in vocational education and training. We pride ourselves on providing the academic, vocational, cultural and social environment that fosters high level outcomes. Our students consistently achieve outstanding outcomes in TCE/ATAR results, TCE Certificate performances and VET training.
Having over 120 subjects to choose from and with over 120 college staff, we have the economy of scale to be able to provide a broad curriculum to support the learning goals of our students.
Students have the opportunity to become culturally involved in our college productions, (which are sell-outs every year), Dance Fever Extravaganza and College Symphonic Band (Tasmanian, Victorian and N.S.W Champions), to name a few.
We provide a Tutorial Program that is important support for our students to achieve positive educational outcomes. It is clear that students who do access the tutorials improve their performance especially in Level 3 subjects. Staff are also available in their non-teaching lines and at other times through negotiation with the student.
The large campus stretches over two blocks and incorporates a state of the art gymnasium complex including a swimming pool. Other College facilities include a training restaurant and automotive workshop.
