Central component of our community

Situated at the heart of Woodlea’s future sports and education precinct, north of the intersection of Taylors Road and Frontier Avenue, Aintree Secondary School (interim name) is a central component of the Woodlea community.

It will join two existing primary schools, including the expanding Bacchus Marsh Grammar and Aintree Primary School, which just celebrated its enrolment of 1000 students.

Upon completion of the first stage, the secondary school will be able to accommodate 550 students, providing them the opportunity to complete their entire educational journey within Woodlea which is set to bring significant benefits to our community. 

We look forward to seeing the school come to life and providing updates every step of the way! For more information visit the link below
