Our History: A timeline

Founding Principal, Mr Andrew Williams, worked tirelessly to establish the College in the local community. Founding members of staff were Mrs Tricia Seccull, Mrs Heather Stammers, Mrs Simone Tynan and Mrs Allyson Willis. The original College consisted of one building incorporating the Principal's office, Library, staffroom and two classrooms. Christ the King Anglican College was built through the generosity and vision of many in the local community and the Anglican Diocese of Wangaratta. Bishop David Farrer was the first chairman of the College, while Fr. Lyall Cowell was a driving force behind the College in its early years.

The Gearing Wing being built in 2001

2000 – What is now known as Cobram Anglican Grammar School opens its doors as 'Christ the King Anglican College' (CKC). The College had a founding enrolment total of 26 students spread across Years 5, 6 and 7. The original College site was once a thriving orchard. The prominent local Cornish family generously donated the land.

2001 – The Gearing Wing is added, greatly expanding the number of available classrooms.

2005 – The first CKC students complete Year 12 and obtain their Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE). The Science Wing is also constructed this same year.

2006 – The first group of Prep (Foundation) students join the College. Since then, the Junior School (Foundation to Year 6) has steadily grown, establishing a great history of addressing the academic and pastoral needs of its students.

2009 – The Arts and Technology Wing opens at the southern end of the College. This facility enabled the College to enrich its offerings in the Arts. Students now have access to a modern, well equipped visual and ceramic arts classroom with its own kiln.

2017 – Further construction sees the Performing Arts Centre be developed and the Arts Technology Wing extended. 

2019 – The school's Agriculture Centre is extended, enabling students to grow a variety of crops, fruit and vegetables.
