Welcome to Bethlehem College Secondary

We believe in transforming young people’s lives with Christ at the centre of all we do, providing a learning community of excellence that permeates throughout our student's school years and beyond. We endeavour to equip our students for effective service and leadership. Our biblically based curriculum is founded on equipping students to actively influence their world for good.

It’s a privilege to partner with you and your sons and daughters on their learning journey through Secondary from Years 7-13. We aim to provide a safe, supportive environment where students feel a sense of connection with their friends, teachers and the school community - a community that encourages them to grow, develop and mature into the next generation of Christian leaders.
