Shenton College (4168)

School Overview

At Shenton College we strive to ignite curiosity and foster a lifelong love of learning. Our unique approach focuses on delivering an educational experience that's about much more than marks - we aim to help each of our students develop their dreams and achieve their goals.

Located in Perth's western suburbs, the College has earned a reputation of high academic and sporting achievements. The College was 2013 WA Secondary School of the Year in the WA Education Awards, and in the same year was also awarded WA Secondary Principal of the Year. Shenton College has also been the top performing comprehensive school in Australia.

Our ambition at Shenton College is to deliver a comprehensive and inspiring education experience for our students. We are a frontrunner in gifted and talented education through our well-known and awarded GATE program, and we are consistently successful in a wide range of sporting, cultural, and community based co-curricular events at State, national and international levels.

The campus is divided into a Middle School for Years 7 to 8, Lower Senior School for Years 9 to 10 and an Upper Senior School for Years 11 to 12.

In Middle School, the College aims to address the emotional, social and intellectual needs specific to young teenagers. The environment promotes in students a feeling of self-worth and confidence while also giving them a quality educational experience.

Lower Senior School provides students with rich learning opportunities and focuses on maximising future destinations and pathways to success.

In Upper Senior School, students work with a greater sense of autonomy and independence to pursue individual goals. All Upper Senior School students are assigned a mentor - a staff member who guides and monitors their academic, social and pastoral needs.

Shenton College has a number of specialist support staff available to work with students and staff, including wellbeing coordinators, chaplains, community health nurses, psychologists, learning support advisors, year coordinators and mentors, course and careers advisors and support teachers.

Facilities include a purpose-built 800 seat gymnasium, iCentre, performing arts complex and arts arena and sporting fields. An artificial Olympic-grade hockey field is also part of the Shenton sports and arts complex. There are self-service cafeterias and an automated library.

The Parents and Citizen's Association, the Shenton College Board and the Student Council all actively contribute to the smooth running of Shenton College.
