John Wollaston Anglican Community School is a Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 co-educational day School in Camillo. We are distinguished by our Anglican ethos, strong values and whole school approach that enables students to make a seamless transition through all stages of schooling.

We are a World School of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme with a strong academic and pastoral reputation.

Our established 'Bright Future Positive Education Model' forms the framework of the pastoral approach at John Wollaston. We believe character development is as important as academic progress. Our pastoral strategies are designed to embed social and emotional learning across all age groups. Wellbeing at John Wollaston is comprised of six elements that underpin the School's 'Bright Futures' concept of flourishing; positive emotions, engagement, relationships, purpose, health and achievement.

At John Wollaston we develop the whole person through Service Learning and Encounter experiences which facilitate character development and personal growth.

The School has differentiated programs for the gifted and those who require learning support and there are many co-curricular clubs and activities which encompass sport, artistic and cultural pursuits.

The IB Primary Years Programme culminates with the Year 6 PYP Exhibition in which students interrogate a central idea to showcase the depth and breadth of their learning.

In the Secondary School students are exposed to Harvard Graduate School of Education's Project Zero, Cultures of Thinking. Cultures of Thinking focus on the development of both the individual and the group as effective learners and thinkers able to engage with and adapt to a changing world.

Secondary students have the choice to follow an ATAR or Vocational Education and Training pathway. Students undertaking an ATAR pathway are offered a full complement of subjects. The Vocational Education and Training pathway offers Certificate courses and workplace learning experiences to prepare for the real world beyond school.

John Wollaston graduates leave with a strong foundation for life, valuing personal best and possessing integrity and compassion. A bright future awaits.
