State of the Art Facilities

Palmerston College is a modern, purpose-built secondary college that has two dedicated campuses on spacious grounds.

Our custom-built facilities allow students to immerse themselves in College life, allowing them to explore and enrich their areas of interest. From the traditional classroom environment to the laboratories and sports grounds to the Special Education Centre, our students have all the physical resources at hand to explore where their talents lie.

Whether students’ interests be academic, sporting, or artistic in nature, our aim is to foster an environment that challenges, engages, and extends our students. A primary goal at Palmerston College is to prepare and assist our students for their future study options, workforce, or career.

Learning areas at the 7-9 Campus are innovative Learning Hubs that are curriculum focused. The facilities at the 10-12 Campus are designed to cater to young adults, with dedicated learning areas, study spaces and regions focused on specialist.
