Founded in 1902, Perth College is an Anglican school in Perth offering Day and Boarding opportunities for girls from Kindergarten to Year 12, with boarding available from Year 7.
Perth College is the oldest independent Anglican girls’ school in Western Australia with over 115 years educating remarkable women. The School aims to engage body, mind, heart and spirit of each student and it is these principles, which have contributed to the School’s reputation of offering a holistic education and diverse opportunities.
During 2012, Perth College launched InsideOut, the first sequential self-leadership programme in Western Australian schools. Providing opportunities for girls from Kindergarten to Year 12 the learning opportunities will be provided in a range of workshops, seminars, experiential learning and self-leadership opportunities. This is to reflect the girls inner development to outer excellence, which will provide students with the skills to lead themselves; to cope with challenges; to be more resilient; become stronger; more capable, whilst also giving the girls real skills to make a difference in society, which will also benefit overall academic performance. A key aspect of InsideOut is our collaboration with the University of Western Australia (UWA), who is undertaking a research project to evaluate the quantitative difference of self-leadership training, which will provide us with measurable outcomes.
At Perth College, students are provided with a Personal Learning Device (PLD) granting them access to significant learning technologies. The PLD is considered to be the student's mobile classroom. The School has invested in state-of-the-art infrastructure including wireless technology, smart boards, industry standard and educational software and systems. These technologies in conjunction with traditional classroom best practices provide our girls with a 21st Century education.
The School is renowned for its teaching staff, they are leaders in their field through trial and implementation of the new courses of study and the Australian Curriculum. Students rate our teachers as one of the benefits of attending the School as they are compassionate, caring and develop strong relationships.
The Perth College Boarding House is home to 100 girls and prides itself on its warmth and 'home away from home' environment with a unique rural feel. A feature of a Perth College boarding education is the On Board programme. It is designed to teach our girls more about themselves, to develop self-esteem, to appreciate and experience the ways in which they can contribute to their immediate and wider community and ultimately how to lead by example and manage senior roles of leadership in preparation for life beyond Perth College.

Rockingham Montessori School is an independent school near the ocean in Rockingham, Western Australia. We are committed to Montessori philosophy and practice. Between our Infant Toddler Program (playgroup), Primary School and Adolescent Program, we provide a genuine Montessori education experience for around 250 children and young people, from 12 months to 18 years of age.
Celebrating our ‘place’ and our history, our classes are named after ocean creatures, from the little penguins and sealions that live on or near Penguin Island, near the site of the original School, to the wobbegongs, jellyfish, starfish, turtles and dolphins regulary seen at our local Rockingham Beach, to the more fanciful, dramatic and unique seahorses, mantarays, orcas, narwhals, crocodilos and dugongs.
