School Profile

An emphasis is placed on encouraging all students to participate in wide ranging inter, and intra school sports programs offered by the staff of the College. Students are also supported in the pursuit of other co-curricular activities such as debating, drama/theatre, dance, musical productions and art exhibitions.

Brauer College is a community that fosters active citizenship and an appreciation of scholastic and co-curricula achievement.



Brauer College is located in Warrnambool, a regional city in the southwest of Victoria with a population of around 30,000 and draws students from both the city and surrounding areas.


Its long history gives it a special place in both the local community and Victorian education. The school was founded as Warrnambool Technical School in 1911 and was situated on a number of sites prior to moving to the Caramut Rd location in 1974. In 1989 the name was changed from Warrnambool Technical College to Brauer College after a local doctor who was a significant benefactor to the school over a long period of time (Dr Alfred Brauer).
