Who we are

With the educational opportunities we offer, every student can find their own way to shine at Beaconhills College.


From humble beginnings in 1982, Beaconhills College has flourished. The vision of a group of parishioners at St John’s Anglican Church in Upper Beaconsfield back in 1980 is now realised.
