Baldivis Secondary College, located 46km south of Perth, is a relatively new and vibrant learning community and the first public secondary school established in the area. The college opened in 2013 with a single year group of 220 Year 8 students and 32 staff. In the ensuing years our College population had risen to over 1,800 students and nearly 200 staff, making Baldivis Secondary College one of Western Australia's fastest growing and largest secondary schools.

Students and staff are expected to achieve personal excellence in all they do. We continue to explicitly teach, demonstrate and provide opportunities to practise working together and building a harmonious sense of community. Baldivis Secondary College strives to maintain high expectations and standards of and for every member of our school community and in doing so we look to attain our mission of providing every opportunity for our students and staff to reach their full potential and to be their best.

We believe that all students are entitled to rigorous, relevant and engaging learning programs drawn from a challenging curriculum that addresses their individual learning needs. Our teachers develop teaching and learning programs that build on students' interests, strengths, goals and learning needs, and address the cognitive, affective, physical, social and aesthetic needs of all students.

We are an integral part of the Baldivis community and are constantly looking for ways to enhance our partnerships and links with the local community as well as the wider community.

We have a strong collaborative approach with our partner primary schools of Baldivis, Baldivis Gardens, Makybe Rise, Rivergums, Settlers and Tuart Rise Primary Schools.

Additionally, we have established partnerships and initiatives with Murdoch University, Edith Cowan University, University of Western Australia, Curtin University, Victoria University, Telstra, TAFE WA, local businesses and industry and local community organisations. These partnerships have been instrumental in building the capacity and social capital of students and staff with a clear focus on ensuring that exiting students are well prepared academically, socially and emotionally for life outside the school gate.

We value the essential partnership between students, teachers and parents. Our systems and processes are in place to ensure each person is valued and communicated with in a timely manner. The learning environment for our young people is designed to create a sense of belonging and an enjoyable learning experience. It is founded on the principle of respect. Each initiative and every interaction in our learning community is developed and implemented with the expectation that respect underpins the dialogue and action of each individual.

The college facilities are state of the art and designed to provide the best learning environments for students and staff. New and innovative designs and resources allow for dynamic interaction amongst our community members and established to meet the needs and interests of all.

The partnerships, staffing, resourcing, facilities, curriculum and programs at Baldivis Secondary College are all designed and provided so that each individual will perform to the best of their ability and in doing so attain their level of excellence.
