About Wanneroo SC
Wanneroo Secondary College has been successfully catering for the educational, personal and social developmental needs of the young people of Wanneroo and surrounding areas since its opening in 1977.
We are, in a very real sense, your local High School, occupying a tranquil bush setting within two kilometers of Wanneroo Central. We are extensively involved with the local community through our relationships with Wanneroo City Council, Universities and TAFE, industry groups, the Western Australian Football Commission, and the local branches of Rotary and the Army Cadets. The college is well serviced by a network of Public Transport Authority buses, providing a safe and reliable transport options for students traveling to and from school.
Our innovative curriculum allows us to cater for the full range of students’ talents and ambitions. Academic Extension and Robotics and Coding Programs in Lower School, accredited Specialist Programs (Performing Arts and Australian Rules Football), Japanese Language, specialised TAFE-Oriented studies (conducted at our Joondalup campus) and work-experience opportunities enable us to provide clearly defined and structured pathways for students aiming for university entry and for those wanting to take up trades or other avenues of entry into the workforce.
Students are well supported to transition through the stages of their high school career by an experienced team of Student Services staff who are dedicated to the social-emotional development of every student. Staff work alongside families, and parental involvement at all levels is encouraged and appreciated.
Major building and upgrading programs have provided us with state-of-the-art facilities for Music and Performing Arts, dramatically expanded our computing and ICT capacity and renovated and improved virtually all other learning area environments and equipment. In 2014, the College unveiled a new, split-level structure purpose-built to cater for the needs of Year 7 students and in 2020 opened a Sports Centre and Health and Physical Education facility boasting new indoor and outdoor courts, modern change room facilities and teaching spaces. With a focus on ongoing transformation, Wanneroo is set to open a new Performing Arts facility, upgraded Canteen space and improved carpark facilities in 2022.
At Wanneroo Secondary College we ask every student to, “Star in Your Future … Dream, Believe, Learn, Succeed!”
