Wanneroo Secondary College (4125)

School Overview

Wanneroo Secondary College is committed to the education, both academically and socially, of every student who walks through our doors. We consider our staff and students our greatest assets - our teachers are experienced and highly skilled, and our students are friendly, inclusive and always striving for excellence.

Our innovative curriculum allows us to cater for all students' talents and ambitions. Constant improvement in literacy and numeracy standards is one of our highest priorities. The college offers a variety of pathways and programs to students to develop their talents and engage them in schooling.

For students in Year 7 to 10 we offer approved Specialist Programs in Performing Arts, (Drama, Dance and Music) and Australian Rules Football. In addition we offer High Performance Programs in Academic Extension, Robotics and Coding, and Instrumental Music. We offer the Japanese language to all students. Year 7 students are well catered for with a proven customised program, 'JumpStart' designed to ease the move into high school. These students are located in the welcoming environment of the purpose build Tuart Building.

In senior school students can either locate at the Wanneroo Campus and undertake ATAR or general programs, or move to the Joondalup Campus and engage in specialised vocational studies, and work experience opportunities. The two campuses provide clearly defined and structured pathways for students aiming for university entry and for those wanting to take up trades or other avenues of entry into the workforce.

The college has an extensive program of activities and opportunities designed to enrich students' academic and social development. We offer overseas and interstate excursions, sporting teams in every field, after school clubs and tutoring sessions.

The teaching and support staff is made up of a healthy mix of keen 'young guns' and wise older heads, all highly skilled, motivated and determined to provide the very best educational and personal outcomes for every student. The academic progress and general wellbeing of each student is constantly monitored by the school, providing students with essential social, emotional and academic support and guidance. We offer a safe, caring and nurturing environment where all students are given every opportunity to blossom and to achieve their full potential.

We are extensively involved with the local community through our relationships with the Wanneroo City Council, universities and training organisations, industry groups, the Western Australian Football Commission, and the local branches of Rotary and the Army Cadets.

We strongly encourage our parents to be fully engaged in their children's education and in the school through volunteering and attendance at events. We also have an active School Board and the P&C Association.

Wanneroo Secondary College is set in native gardens with a rock pool and numerous trees that contribute to a peaceful learning environment. We have recently undergone an upgrade and have a new performing arts centre, which includes a music-recording studio, dance studio and a large refurbished theatre. All classrooms have been refurbished and each learning area has at its core a computer hub, which enables information technology to be fully embedded in all teaching and learning programs. Also recently completed are the specialised rooms for robotics and jewellery, and art and textiles rooms.
