Context Statement

Gleeson College is a Catholic co-educational secondary school situated on the Golden Grove Secondary Schools Campus (One+) in the north-eastern suburbs of Adelaide. Nurturing students from Years 7 to 12, Gleeson College is well resourced and is complemented by the shared learning and facilities accessed by three schools on campus: Gleeson College, Pedare Christian College and Golden Grove High School. 

Gleeson College takes its name from the Very Reverend James Gleeson.  Throughout his long and distinguished career, Archbishop Gleeson had a strong personal commitment to the pursuit of justice and peace and we believe that the students of Gleeson College continue to strive for these goals, in the  Catholic tradition.  At  Gleeson College all members of our  community aim to fulfil the College's Vision through the Gleeson 10 (the College's core values and indicators).

The College operates a vertical house system of Pastoral Care and our staff is highly regarded for their partnership with parents and students, dedication to academic excellence and the pastoral care of students as well as commitment to professional development.


Gleeson College is a faith-filled community which provides its members with the opportunity to discover, develop and use their God-given talents and abilities in the service of others.


... is to fulfil our vision by ensuring that at Gleeson College:
  • the promotion of faith, the love of God, the person of Jesus and service to others are central to the education of the whole person;
  • we provide a safe, supportive and welcoming environment;
  • the children, parents and staff work together, listen to and care for one another with confidence and trust;
  • we cater for individual differences in the pursuit of excellence so that personal success can be achieved by all.
