Bullsbrook College (4066)

School Overview

At Bullsbrook College each individual has special qualities and gifts they bring to the school. We believe everyone has the right to be respected and a responsibility to respect others. Being a warm, caring and supportive school is an important priority in all we do. Our school-wide Positive Behaviour Program utilises the acronym SOAR (Safe - Organised - Active Learners - Respect) to promote appropriate social behaviour and build resilience and self-confidence.

We are an Independent Public School catering for Kindergarten to Year 12 on a modern, beautifully landscaped campus. The effectiveness of our programs in our Kindergarten and Pre-Primary classrooms is well-known. So too are the positive results we achieve with our Year 12 students. We have a very strong focus upon literacy and numeracy improvement. Staff monitor student progress so we can identify and apply teaching strategies which ensure all children are achieving their best. Whatever your child's age group, we have expertise to meet their learning needs.

Our boutique university entrance program (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank - ATAR) enables students to enter most of the university courses available. Our well-regarded Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses and certificates result in students achieving employment in a variety of industries and vocations. Our science programs in Year 12 are among the best in WA. We work with the University of Western Australia to develop the quality of our learning and teaching in this learning area because of our school's belief in the importance of science in the modern world. Our successful links with industry, employers, universities and training providers are a key to our good results.

Music is important to our school and we have opportunities for your child to learn an instrument, participate in a school band, sing in the school choir or be a part of special events behind the scenes. We have specialist music teachers from the School of Instrumental Music as well as our own talented music team. Our community singing program is growing in the school and is a feature at our school assemblies.

The Learning Support Team consists of experts who support children and families. Parent contact is welcomed and encouraged because we believe strongly in the importance of open, honest and supportive links between the family and the school. Building that sense of civic responsibility and the importance of 'community' in our students is a feature of our school ethos.

Our school is located in the community of Bullsbrook on the outskirts of Perth. It has the unique combination of country and city life with the benefits and resources of both. We are surrounded by semi-rural scenes and have the Pearce RAAF Airbase just a few minutes walk from the school. Located in the City of Swan, our community is growing and thriving. Our school seeks to contribute to, as well as benefit from, that growth and our staff are dedicated to supporting and developing the youth of this community.

We benefited greatly from a $25 million building program which has provided modern science laboratories, a large sports hall, cafeteria, dance room, workshops and air conditioned, comfortable classrooms all set among beautifully landscaped grounds.
