City Campus







At the City Campus, we pride ourselves on our inclusive, vibrant and creative community. Last year our site saw a record number of students graduating as we prepared for the Senior Secondary Certificate Reforms, which was simultaneously inspiring and bittersweet. This year sees us saying goodbye to VCAL and focussing on the new Vocational Major and Victorian Pathways Certificate. We have welcomed many new students and staff, however the friendly, interpersonal connections that have always defined our campus continue to be a big part of our identity in 2023.


Our unique and centralised location provides a fantastic opportunity for lots of excursions, work placements and community projects. We have had excursions to the Grand Prix, students doing work placements at exciting locations like Marvel Stadium and participation in community events such as building Lego houses on the steps of Parliament House to highlight youth homelessness. The students’ diverse backgrounds, confidence to speak their minds, quirky creativity and commitment to social justice drives many of the activities that run at the City campus each year, including Cultural Day, IDAHOBIT celebrations and NAIDOC Week events. We thank all the City and travelling staff for their incredible work ethic and skills. Through their commitment to Hester Hornbrook’s values and mission, we walk alongside our young people on their learning and wellbeing journey through Hester Hornbrook and onto successful post-school pathways.
