School Overview

Every Student Flourishing

Warnbro Community High School (CHS) Education Support Centre is an award-winning, Independent Public School for students with intellectual disabilities, co-located with Warnbro Community High School. Through our unique and innovative programs, high quality teaching and strong pastoral care relationships we nurture a sense of belonging, significance and emotional safety. Our students take pride in their qualifications and achievements and confidently graduate into the wider community with the knowledge and skills to achieve their hopes, dreams and aspirations.

Warnbro CHS Education Support Centre provides a middle school program for students in Years 7-9 and a senior school program for students in Years 10-13. During the middle school years, students work in small groups with the teachers and education assistants to improve their literacy, numeracy and social skills. Highly trained teachers develop rich, integrated, meaningful and challenging student learning programs that are informed by the Western Australian Curriculum. Our students are supported to develop their knowledge, skills and understandings in English, Mathematics, Science, Health & Physical Education and Humanities & Social Sciences. Our Protective Behaviours program ensures that students have the skills to make safe and sensible decisions for themselves at school, home and in the community. Additionally, students spend approximately 30% of their class time in integrated mainstream classes working along their mainstream peers.

By graduation, we want your child to be well ready for their future, and so our integrated and innovative senior school program prepares students for an independent and prosperous life after school. Senior school programs continue to build the essential literacy and numeracy skills and these are linked to industry areas that include; Business, Transport and Logistics, Hospitality, Agrifoods and Retail. Our senior school students participate in nationally recognised training to achieve Certificate I and II level qualifications. Practical work and life skills are reinforced through participation in Enterprise Education, Workplace Learning and ASDAN endorsed programs. Detailed transition planning supports our students to work confidently towards their goals and create a future for themselves as proud contributors and participants in their community upon graduation.

At Warnbro CHS Education Support Centre our educational programs are based on our students' strengths, interests and abilities and each student has a carefully crafted Individual Education Plan that outlines their personal learning journey. Dedicated staff have expertise in a wide range of areas and they will work with your child to help them achieve their goals. A Well-Being Team supports students and other staff members to manage students' mental, emotional and behavioural needs. Our occupational therapist and speech pathologist work with students individually and with teachers and assistants to cater for students social, emotional, sensory and physical needs. A collaborative approach to managing the needs of our students results in our students having a positive journey through school and supports them to actively create the life they want to live.
