Gilmore College (4031)

School Overview

Gilmore College is an Independent public school which opened in 2008 continuing 52 previous years of secondary education provided by Kwinana Senior High School. The school continues the education of students from within the City of Kwinana area primary schools.

Students thrive in an inclusive environment consisting of Australian Indigenous, European, African, Sub-Continental, Middle Eastern, Asian and Pacific Island Nations' people. Our moral purpose to meet the unique learning potential of all of our students through positive relationships drives interactions between all of our school community members.

Our positive behaviour school acronym is S.O.A.R. which stands for supportive, organised, aspirational and resilient and creates a tone for our welcoming environment. We provide a comprehensive curriculum with pathways to university, further study, training and employment.

Our pastoral care and student services team deliver the support for the delivery of these curriculum opportunities and help to establish our school as a trusted local community institution.

Students at Gilmore College frequently excel in academic, cultural, industrial, sporting and technological endeavours. Recently the school has placed a focus on the sustainable use of resources, caring for our natural environment and reconnection with our Whadjuk Noongar Boodjar (country, land, earth and sea of our first people.)

Our school stands because of the achievements and perseverance of its students, staff and community over 62 years. We recently formed an Alumni Association 'Old Flames' which recognises the enormous value that mentorship and coaching from former students can give to the students of today.
