Emmanuel is a fee-paying school that provides excellent teaching, facilities and resources. The College is on a path of continual improvement with clear plans for its future direction. Emmanuel College provides exceptional value and we are proud of what we offer.

For many parents a school’s facilities are not usually the highest priority when choosing a school but multiple studies indicate the quality of a school’s physical resources can play a major role in contributing to student success. Facilities can affect health, behaviour, engagement, learning and growth. Emmanuel’s building Master Plan is the framework for the ongoing updating of facilities based on achieving the best educational outcomes.

Take a glimpse into the grounds and facilities of Emmanuel College and our local Warrnambool area in this short video filmed from above.

Emmanuel students learn across three campuses all within short walking distance of each other. While the Emmanuel College student population has grown in recent years, the multi-campus structure ensures that the College is able to retain its valued small-school atmosphere.

The Rice Campus on Canterbury Road currently caters for Years 11 and 12 students, but from 2022 will be home to our new Year 9 program - 9 at RICE.

A separate campus for senior students fosters relaxed and adult interaction between staff and students, helping to prepare senior students to make the transition from the school environment to the adult world of tertiary education and the workforce.

Located a short walk away is the McAuley Campus in Ardlie Street. McAuley Campus is currently home to Years 7, 8 and 10 students. This is also the location of the main College Administration Office.

The Goold Campus is currently home to Year 9 students and teachers, but on completion of building works will become the base for both Year 7 and 8.

At the heart of Emmanuel College is the Emmanuel Centre, the South-West region's largest venue with an auditorium that seats 1,500. This is the venue for whole school assemblies and the place where significant College events, including graduations and awards evenings, take place.

The Emmanuel Centre auditorium contains two sports courts, a gym, spin bike studio, showers and change facilities. The mezzanine level provides a well-equipped venue for small group training and it is the location for student leadership sessions. The spacious forecourt features sculpture installations and outdoor seating.

The STAGE (Student Theatre for Arts and Growth and Emmanuel) is a dedicated, first-class performing arts space. The facilities within The STAGE include: The Wyton Theatre - a 250 seat theatre with tiered seating, professional standard recording studio, band rehearsal areas, studios for individual and small group tuition and a dance studio. The STAGE complements a learning program that welcomes students who are passionate about the performing arts.

Beneath the Auditorium of the Emmanuel Centre is the Thomas O’Toole Foundation Industrial Skills Centre. The facility replicates a real-life industry environment and contains facilities for technology and design studies working with wood, metal, plastics and building industry skills. This facility is an important component in ensuring students have access to high quality, relevant education and training opportunities that continue to engage them and encourage them to complete their studies.

The Industrial Skills Centre assists Emmanuel College to continue to make a valuable contribution in collaboration with industry and the local community, equipping young people with the skills and knowledge that support life‐long learning.

With this state-of-the-art complex and all of the equipment, technology and cross-discipline learning it provides, when a student comes to me now and says, ‘I’d like to be a motor mechanic,” now I can say, ‘That’s great, but have you thought about becoming a car designer?’ The willingness of the College to invest in and incorporate technology across the curriculum makes a statement about our commitment to innovation, creativity and preparing our students for the careers of the future.

In 2021, an expanded and redeveloped Library will reopen with multi-zoned, multi-purpose learning areas catering for individual learners and groups for independent and collaborative work. Renowned Library Consultant, Kevin Hennah, worked with the College to develop a vision of how space, technology and the library collection may evolve and maintain relevance in the twenty-first century.
