Churchlands Senior High School (4012)

School Overview

We have an outstanding tradition of student excellence in academic, sporting and cultural fields and is without peer in the public system, placing the school competitively against Western Australia's leading schools.

The school provides an ordered, safe and supportive environment characterised by respectful relationships among students and staff. The Churchlands community supports the tradition of wearing our school uniform with pride, reflecting a shared commitment to excellence in all aspects of school life. The school's values focus on personal, social and environmental responsibility.

A dedicated teaching staff and highly motivated students uphold the academic traditions represented by the achievements of former students, including Rhodes Scholars and Beazley Medal winners in each of the past four decades.

An Academic Extension Program provides a challenging and nurturing learning environment where selected students are able to develop to their full potential. All students have access to a rigorous academic curriculum, state of the art facilities and additional tuition through the school's homework centre. A high proportion of students go on to a university education and many of our students go on to become leaders in their chosen field and in the community.

Churchlands Senior High School's Gifted and Talented music program has delivered outstanding music education for more than four decades. Outstanding facilities include a 500-seat acoustically engineered concert hall, an acoustics auditorium seating 270, a dedicated choral studio together with instrumental practice rooms considered the best in the state.

International recognition includes the attainment of honours at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in Wales and at the World Music Festival in Geneva. Student musicians perform for audiences in Australia and overseas with three-yearly tours to Europe, Asia and North America.

Physical and health education classes assist all students to improve their level of physical fitness, gain skills and make informed choices for a healthy lifestyle. Participation in all school sports is encouraged with the school recognised as the most outstanding athletics and swimming team in the public system. Churchlands Senior High School's philosophy of encouraging students to 'Aim High' and strive for excellence is evident in the success of local young sports people and past students. School graduates include nine Olympians and more than 100 state and national representative players in many sports and recreational activities.

Many students express their creativity by studying Fine Art & Design, Media, Dance, Photography and Drama. The school offers co-curricular activities such as public speaking, debating, surfing, chess and environmental and community projects. The school community is built on a partnership between parents, staff and past and present students. It is strengthened by links to local businesses and community organisations. Community service is a significant focus for all Year 10, 11 and 12 students, who on graduation achieve an average of 50 hours community service per student.

Recent school improvements of up to $38.9 million, have added substantial value to our school and we are now able to provide children with outstanding facilities to develop their talents. Highlights include; new mathematics block, new sports hall, new technology building and a new science/arts block.
