Yule Brook College (4127)

School Overview

We are a proud Independent Public School inspired by our ethos of 'one student at a time in a community of learners'.

Our school strives to meet the individual needs of our students and provide support to develop the dimensions of the whole person within a transformative learning and teaching environment.

Yule Brook College is a small by-design middle school, located in Maddington, 20km south-east of the Perth CBD in Maddington. The college specialises in the education of students in Years 7 to 10, using the Big Picture design to provide an individualised learning plan based on each student's interests and passions.

The Advisory class is an integral part of our school structure within the Big Picture design, and students develop a strong bond with their class and teacher. Advisory teachers remain with their student group for four years and maintain regular contact with parents, who are involved in the development of learning plans, and attend an exhibition presented by their child each term to demonstrate their learning.

Students in Years 9 and 10 extend their learning outside the classroom by attending an internship for at least one day a week, where they learn in a workplace environment and complete project work in their area of passion. Students also have access to the 'Makerspace' within the school - a space with tools and materials where they can design, invent, make and learn by doing.

Approximately one third of our students are Aboriginal, and the school has a long history of partnerships with organisations including Clontarf, the Wirrpanda Foundation and Follow the Dream. These organisations share our goal to improve educational outcomes for all young people, and in particular to close the gap between the outcomes for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal youth.

The school also has a large Filipino population, and around a quarter of students come from families where English is not their first language.

Families are vital partners with teachers in our school. Our school board includes representation from the local community, parents and staff.
