Canning Vale College (4174)

School Overview

At Canning Vale College, our staff are committed to our vision of 'Creating Futures' for every child. This is achieved when each child leaves with the knowledge, skills and values to transition to university, further training or employment. We believe our strong partnership with you, and your child, ensures we achieve this aim.

We are a large, comprehensive and modern secondary school catering for children from Years 7 to 12. Your child benefits from the variety of subject choices and resources, including specialist teachers and state of the art facilities offering the best chance of achieving at the highest level.

We consider your child's care a team responsibility. Our dedicated Student Engagement and Support team includes a nurse, psychologists, chaplain, youth workers, and external support agencies. Our code of conduct and behaviour management policy supports our commitment to providing a safe and supportive learning environment for all.

Personal pathway planning for each child aligns each child's aspirations with their capability and results. Everyone in Years 7 to 10 study maths, science, English, humanities and social sciences, physical education, with options to study the arts, languages and technology and enterprise. Children in Years 11 and 12 have opportunities to choose a pathway focused on their chosen career and benefit from our continued relationships with Universities and other higher education facilities.

Children with learning difficulties, disabilities or needing additional support are supported to achieve their very best.

We offer Specialist Programs in Academic Extension, Languages and STEM (Engineering focus) which are selective and highly competitive. Entry is subject to results of an Academic Extension Test that is offered during term 2 of the year prior to commencement at CVC.
