Willetton Senior High School (4126)

School Overview

Immediately on entering Willetton Senior High School, you will be struck by the positive engagement between students and staff. The warm and respectful relationships which exist reflect the collaboration between all members of the Willetton learning community and positive contribution of the School Board and parents alike, who share the common goal of inspiring students to achieve to the maximum of their academic, social and emotional potential. Willetton Senior High School is committed to empowering competent, skilled and socially responsible citizens of a world community and has a dedicated Student Services Centre staffed by highly trained practitioners to support both parents and teachers to this end.

The school is highly regarded locally, nationally and internationally and the demand for enrolment is strong. As a result strict boundaries for enrolment are applied. The multicultural nature of the school community is both recognised and celebrated. New state of the art teaching facilities and buildings have recently enriched the campus.

The school caters for around 2300 students from Year 7 to Year 12 in a wide range of courses and subjects. Results achieved in WACE, NAPLAN, sporting, academic and cultural competitions and examinations are outstanding. Participation in a wide range of extra-curricular activities including the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, solar car vehicle challenge, theatrical and music productions and robotics is encouraged. A domed telescope which can be remotely controlled from home by students enhances the STEM program. Willetton is the only public school in WA to have this facility.

Students with special academic and emotional needs are catered for in both a fully staffed Resource Unit as well as smaller classes. A Gifted and Talented Program and a Specialist Basketball Program operates from Year 7 to 12 and extension Art and Computing courses are available to students eligible for enrolment at the school.

Willetton Senior High School is an Independent Public School to be proud of!
