John Wollaston Anglican Community School is a co-educational day School serving families in Perth's south-east for Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12. We are inclusive and welcoming of families from all backgrounds and faiths; a school where every student finds their place in our safe and nurturing environment, where they are free to be and inspired to become.

We are a World School of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) with a strong academic and pastoral reputation. At John Wollaston, we focus on the development of the whole person, teaching students to be inquirers, knowledgeable thinkers and communicators who are motivated to think for themselves, be courageous and make a difference in the world.

We believe character development is as important as academic progress. Strong relationships underpin the whole school journey. Our students' lives are transformed through connection, creating a positive culture and opportunities to thrive. Our pastoral strategies are designed to embed social and emotional learning across all age groups.

Service Learning and Encounter experiences facilitate character development and personal growth. Students are challenged to be better people who are kind, resilient and confident in their abilities.

The IB PYP encourages students to think critically and creatively through an inquiry-led curriculum. This 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.

Senior Secondary students have the opportunity to follow a variety of pathways including ATAR/University or a Vocational Education and Training path. Students undertaking an ATAR pathway are offered a full complement of courses. The Vocational and Education and Training pathway offers Certificate courses and workplace learning experiences to prepare for the real world beyond school.

The School has differentiated programs for the gifted and those who require learning support. Co-curricular clubs and activities encompass academic, sport, artistic and cultural pursuits.

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