In 1988 the State Government investigated the curriculum delivery of schools across the state. As a result it was decided in the Bayside area to merge four schools – Beaumaris High, Hampton High, Highett High and Sandringham Technical Schools.

It was at a time when the VCE was first introduced as the main certificate for the Later Years of schooling. The Sandringham Technical School site became the Senior Campus, Hampton High closed and Beaumaris High and Highett High became Years 7-10 Junior Campuses – Sandringham College was formed.
