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.

Our strong academic and pastoral focus continues in the Secondary School, where John Wollaston provides the foundation for students to develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions for success in further education, work and life. In the 21st century, young people need to be lifelong learners, confident and resilient individuals and responsible change makers. With the world rapidly evolving around us, our teachers are working to 'future-proof' our students’ education, providing them with more choice, agency over their learning and inspire innovation for future pathways. We support our students to become innovators, entrepreneurs, collaborators, ethical citizens, effective communicators and creators of technology by offering a range of curriculum and cocurricular opportunities from Years 7 to 10.

Our new approach to Senior Secondary course selection titled 'MYPath' has been designed to help students tailor their learning experience, tapping into their interests and providing flexibility around future pathways. From Year 11, students participate in 'MYPath' choosing from one of six streams of learning including an ATAR pathway, General pathway and one of four Vocational and Education Training pathways.

At John Wollaston, we are committed to making learning as dynamic as the world around us by presenting our students with real world contexts, transforming their knowledge to build a better world. John Wollaston graduates leave our school with a strong foundation for life, valuing personal best and possessing integrity and compassion.
