The Ashdale Cluster of Schools has existed since 2009. The Cluster is a K-12 model of education that was designed to enhance student’s educational opportunities through provision to specialist facilities and collaboration across schools.

Primary students, across the cluster, have been visiting and accessing the College facilities since 2010 through programs such as: The Primary Science Program, Cluster Muster, Dance Program and Specialist Technology Club.

In 2014, transition activities for the Year 6s include a school tour and a two day transition program. The Year 7s will be undertaking a comprehensive four week transition program at the end of the year. These programs are designed to allow the student to experience the secondary school environment and are regularly evaluated with students and teachers providing feedback.

Student Feedback included:

97.7% of students agreed or strongly agreed that they felt safe at recess and lunch.
95.4% of students agreed or strongly agreed that they felt confident going to secondary school.
94.25% of students agreed or strongly agreed that they enjoyed the specialist facilities, liked the secondary teachers and enjoyed the different subjects.
