Science and Language Centre
The Science and Language Centre was occupied in 2012 and officially opened in the same year. The centre contains eight learning spaces used by students in years 7 to 12. These include an environmental science room, chemistry room, laboratory preparation room and a number of smaller conference style rooms. An open amphitheatre is also a feature, as well as a kitchenette in the German room.
Three classrooms in the science and language centre are equipped with access to the Grampians Virtual School network, enabling students and staff to connect with other classes across the state for both teaching and learning.

It is well used by all of these and is also available to be hired by others. Hockey Victoria, Lacrosse Australia and School Sport Victoria are three regular users.
The gym is open to the public outside of school times upon the purchase of a membership.
The function room is used by the school as a class room and it is a regular venue for many local organisations' meetings.
