It is my pleasure to welcome students, parents and staff to Northcote College.
The success of students at Northcote College reflects the commitment of the students themselves and also the commitment of teachers, parents and others who will guide, support, inspire and encourage students to achieve their best.
Led by Principal Vicki Barrie, the Northcote College Senior Leadership team works together for the benefit of students and staff. Each member of the team holds a range of portfolios. Ms Barrie has specific oversight of curriculum review and development and her departmental responsibilities include: Technology and Digital Technologies.

The purpose of ERO's reviews is to give parents and the wider school community assurance about the quality of education that schools provide and their children receive. An ERO school report answers the question "How effectively is this school's curriculum promoting student learning, engagement, progress and achievement?"
