Warwick Senior High School (4134)

School Overview

Warwick Senior High School is a modern and progressive Independent Public School in the northern suburbs of Perth. We have a welcoming and inclusive learning environment for students in Years 7 to 12.

Your child will have access to a comprehensive curriculum that caters for their needs and aspirations. Our focus is on ensuring their social and emotional development is enriched alongside their academic learning.

In Years 11 and 12, your child will work towards achieving their Western Australian Certificate of Education. They can study Australian Tertiary Admission Rank courses, General courses and Vocational Education and Training certificates (which provide individualised vocational and workplace learning opportunities). About one third of our students in Years 11 and 12 study ATAR, and the balance study a combination of General courses and VET certificates.

The teaching and learning program is designed to be meaningful and engaging, ultimately providing your child with the opportunity to achieve success through appropriate pathways to employment and/or further studies.

We also offer programs aimed at extending learning opportunities for some students, including:

* a school-based Academic Extension Program in mathematics, English, science, and humanities and social sciences for students in Years 7 to 10
* Approved Specialist Programs in Australian Rules Football and Netball
* school-based elite programs in dance and music
* enrichment initiatives including after-school clubs (science, robotics, mathematics and ICT), conferences, seminars, competitions
* many additional opportunities to extend thinking, skills and abilities.

We endeavour to develop a welcoming environment to you and your child. Cooperation, consideration and respect of all people, as well as for the physical environment, are central to the achievement of this aim. As a small, caring school, we are able to meet the needs of a wide range of students through our strong pastoral care system, which is managed by a dedicated and experienced student services team (including a psychologist, learning support coordinator, chaplain and school nurse).

The classrooms and buildings are very well appointed and functional and blend well into the surrounding 1.5 hectares of natural bushland. Most teaching blocks are based on an open-campus plan, allowing for flexibility of lesson delivery and teaching methods. The school is equipped with modern facilities including a gymnasium, tennis, netball and basketball courts, sporting fields, a performing arts centre, open-air amphitheatre and a swimming pool.

To assist in the use of information technology, the school is fully networked and has 350 computers in computer zones. All major learning areas also have sets of laptops for use in any classroom or open areas.

The school is in close proximity to main roads, public transport, shopping centres and community amenities.
