Principal’s Welcome

I am very proud and honoured to be the Principal of such a vibrant learning community. Our positive culture is built on strong values for learning and community. These are the foundations for our students and staff to  pursue excellence in all of their endeavours. We are committed to our students and supporting them in becoming the best learner and person they can be. Our focus is on all members of Brentwood learning as a connected community so that students grow as individuals who are future ready. 

Brentwood has a proud history of serving the Glen Waverley and broader community and the Principal team are committed to leading a school community that builds on the strong culture already established. We aim to see all our students flourish and graduate Year 12 with the knowledge, skills and attributes required for them to achieve their ambitions in the future.

As a community we are very proud of our students and staff. Our students are challenged in each and every class to continue their learning journey, by not only learning more information and skills, but by applying their knowledge to deepen their understanding. Our students are challenged to be creative, curious, reflective, disciplined and to be resilient in everything they do. The staff at Brentwood are professional, diligent and understanding. They know their students well as learners and people. They craft their learning programs to meet the needs of our diverse student population. This ensures all of our students demonstrate growth.

A highlight at Brentwood is the vast range of extra-curricular activities available for our students. Each one of these enables Brentwood students to connect to their community and challenges them to not only nurture their passions, but to develop themselves in the process. Each student at Brentwood is able to be the best learner and person they can be.

I welcome you to come and visit our school to see our vibrant community that values respect, responsibility, empathy, compassion and integrity. These values underpin our community and serve as a foundation for students to achieve their potential. It is for this reason that Brentwood continues to be a school of choice in the local and broader community.
