Facilities/Tour

Claremont College is a bright, innovative and happy learning environment providing the very best of facilities, amenities and resources.

In 2013 the school commenced a classroom refurbishment program.  Our Year 4, 5 and 6 classrooms were completed in 2013 and are exciting spaces, research based and designed to encourage student learning, foster a sense of security and belonging, and bring out the very best in our teachers.  The refurbishment of our Year 2 and 3 classrooms will commence in June 2014. Work on the Kinderagrten and Year 1 classrooms is anticipated for 2015.

Our classrooms are flexible, vibrant, easily configured, inspiring, creative, fun, motivating and appealing for all types of learners. They provide innovative furniture, interesting nooks and spaces, resources and technology.

The design of our classrooms and other learning spaces is based on design principles of safety, colour, sustainability, natural light, natural ventilation, acoustics, ergonomics and that:
- promote healthy play, investigation and discovery
- give children choices
- help children to concentrate
- encourage relationships
- meet the differing learning styles of children
- evoke a sense of comfort and home
- embrace the virtual spaces within our world
- link students to learning opportunities locally, nationally and globally

For our 2013 project, Claremont College engaged the services of leading firm Terrior Architects (Sydney, Hobart, Copenhagen) and Tower Projects. For further information check the following links
