Simonds Catholic College began in 1996, and was born out of the amalgamation of Cathedral College East Melbourne and St Mary's Boys' Regional School West Melbourne. Our College draws on the traditions of these two excellent schools that share a common link with the Religious Order of the Christian Brothers. With a school population of 430 boys, the College provides an excellent Catholic education in the inner city area of Melbourne for boys in years 7 to 12. The College boasts an excellent Science/Technology centre with resources for the teaching of Food, Systems, Information and Materials Technology. We have campuses in West Melbourne for Years 7 - 9 and Fitzroy North for Years 10 - 12.

We are honoured to be the first school named after Justin Simonds, Archbishop of Melbourne 1963-76, parish priest of West Melbourne for 21 years and the first Australian-born Archbishop.

Boys, staff and parents who are part of our College community have the honour and exciting challenge of developing a Christian community in which each person is valued, encouraged and supported to realise his potential.


Simonds Catholic College is an inner city school for boys where every student is known, supported and inspired.
