Adelaide Schools introduces Gleeson College in Golden Grove, for all your education and learning for your childs future, We invite you to explore and learn more about the quality 21st Century education with Gleeson College.
Gleeson College is a Catholic Co-Educational Secondary College situated on the Golden Grove Secondary Schools Campus in the North Eastern suburbs of Adelaide. With an enrolment maximum of 700 students, Gleeson College is particularly well resourced and is complemented by our outstanding shared facilities.
Gleeson College was established in 1989 and is named after the late Emeritus Archbishop of Adelaide, the very Reverend James Gleeson. Archbishop Gleeson had a strong personal commitment to the pursuit of excellence, justice and peace, and we believe that the students of Gleeson College continue to strive for those goals in our Catholic tradition.
We are a faith-filled community, providing our students and staff with the opportunity to discover, develop and use their God-given talents in the service of others. We aim to foster and encourage all students to strive to be the best they can academically, socially and as a person for the world.
Our mission is to always be a College of quality learning and quality teaching. We also aim to work in close partnership with our students and parents, in order to achieve success for all. Pursuit of excellence is a core value of Gleeson College, and is demonstrated by our goal of continuous improvement throughout an evidenced-based approach to 21st Century education.
Gleeson College is underpinned by the values of the Gleeson 10, Choice Theory and Brain-Based Learning. The College operates a Vertical House Structure (VHS) of Pastoral Care, with House Home Groups including both Year 8 and 9 students in the Middle School, and Year 10-12 students in the Senior School. Since its introduction in 2010, we are continually observing the positive outcomes of the VHS implementation, including increased College Spirit and improved student relationships and sense of belonging over all year levels.
Steeped in history, Gleeson College is one of the popular school in the Golden Grove area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
