BALLARAT Secondary College will gain $6 million in Labor's first budget if they are elected at this year's election.
The funding is not set down for a specific use, but will be provided to the school as part the possible restructure of the three campuses.
BSC principal Rick Gervasoni said the school council was currently working through some issues around the possible changes.
"Over the next few months the school council will be making some decisions about what that final structure will be," he said.
"Clearly the announcement today means that the East and Wendouree campuses are a strong part of that future and vision for the school.
"I think what this announcement does is support the work we are doing internally to help upgrade our infrastructure and buildings to go along with that.
"I think that clearly across the two campuses there is a need for upgrading facilities and buildings, it is quite dated and there hasn't been any upgrading for over 20 years and we think our students need to have spaces where they can learn, that stimulates learning and they have the latest technology that helps with that."
Mr Gervasoni said some parts of the school had leaking roofs, problems with the flooring and poor heating.
The funding will be shared across both the Wendouree and East campuses.
Opposition education spokesman James Merlino visited the school's Wendouree campus on Tuesday morning for the announcement and said the funding would be delivered in their first budget if Labor won government.
"They are looking at a restructure and the possibility of providing 7-12 education at the East and Wendouree campuses so this is a very important and timely announcement," he said.
Mr Merlino described the school as "wonderful" although admitted it needed quite a bit of work.
"When you see some things first hand and you have a look around you see some that there are real areas of need."
