Alesco Senior College started in Cessnock in 2016 and offers nearly 70 places for students over Year 10 and Senior 1 and 2.

Our students in Year 10 are able to complete their ROSA and move on into Senior studies. Our Senior students can attain a ROSA, HSC, or attain an ATAR.

With a staff ration of around 1 staff to 10 students, our young people love being a part of a small school community where they feel supportive and celebrated for who they are and given an opportunity to succeed through education.

Alesco Senior College Cessnock is situated in the heart of the Hunter Valley, catering to the Cessnock area and surrounds including suburbs as far as Kurri Kurri, Weston, Bellbird, Millfield, Abermain, Sawyers Gully and some areas of Maitland. We offer our young people an inclusive, accepting and supportive environment for them to complete their education.

Year 10 subjects include: English, Mathematics, HSIE, Science, PDHPE, VET Foundation Skills and Project Based Learning through our Unlimited Potential Program. Senior subjects offered this year include English Studies, Mathematics Standard 1, Aboriginal Studies, Exploring Early Childhood, Visual Design and VET Retail.

We have also launched a VET Retail course this year where students are able to gain a Certificate 2 qualification while studying for their HSC. The program has been very popular to date and students are enjoying the real life learning opportunities, as well as receiving a qualification to help with their future job opportunities.
