The school delivers a year 7-12 curriculum to about 600 students. The Year 7-10 Falconer St North Fitzroy Campus is surrounded by residential housing, local shopping precincts and extensive parklands. It primarily serves students from the local area and nearby suburbs. The campus’s physical environment consists of the original buildings and recent additions. The grounds have had significant student input in design and construction and include a kitchen garden, school-wide and community composting system and indigenous gardens.
The newly opened Wurun Senior Campus on Queens parade Fitzroy is for Year 11 and 12 students from both Fitzroy High School and Collingwood College. This campus has been designed with innovative learning programs in mind and offers a comprehensive senior curriculum program including VCE, VCAL and VET certificates. Fitzroy High School has been partnering with Collingwood College for over 10 years to co -deliver the senior curriculum. The partnership allows both schools to be responsive to the needs and interests of students and provides the capacity to offer a greater range of subjects, compared to what would be possible stand alone. The partnership is designed to complement each school’s strengths and a shared vision under-pins our collaboration. There is an extensive public transport network close to both campuses that provide easy access for the school community and for excursions. Many students ride their bikes and walk to school.
Programs offered for overseas students include access to year 7-12 courses for dependent students or temporary students. Fitzroy High School is not one of the schools specially accredited to accept international students with student visas, however our partner Collingwood College is, and together we offer VCE and VCAL certificates to these students, and a broad range of subjects, including VCE English as an Additional Language.

Fitzroy High School first opened in 1915, and was closed in 1992. Fitzroy High School was one of the first of many schools to be closed across the state during this time. The local community activated and campaigned for Fitzroy High School on two levels. To stop the site from being sold, volunteers occupied the site and slept in the school every night for over two years. Community members lobbied government to re-open the school.Learn More
