Merrilands College was a public P-12 school in Reservoir, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia now merged with Lakeside Secondary College (Radford Road Campus) to become William Ruthven Secondary College, as the Merrilands Road Campus.
The principal of Merrilands College is Wayne Hill. The school was founded in 1997 through the merge of Merrilands Secondary College and Merrilands Primary School. As of 2008, it has 355 pupils.
In 2010, Lakeside Secondary College and Ruthven Primary School will be merged into Merrilands College.
The William Ruthven Primary campuses will be located at Glasgow Avenue and Merrilands Road, and the Secondary, Lakeside Campus and the Merrilands Campus at Merrilands Road Reservoir, Melbourne, Australia. In the near future, a brand new school is planned to be built on the Merrilands site, where all three campuses will combine to form one whole campus as William Ruthven Education Precinct.
The decision made in 2010 to move Radford Road campus students to the Merrilands Road Campus before and during construction has caused three school council members to resign. It has also caused a public debate into the educational, health and safety risks of having students attend the Merrilands construction site.
