An independent, co-educational school from Kindergarten to Year 12
Helena College is a wholly independent school, with no religious ties, catering for Kindergarten to Year 5 at our Darlington Campus and Years 6-12 at the Glen Forrest Campus.
We provide a balanced education, developing the whole child through the inquiry-based International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (Kindy to Year 5) and the Middle Years Programme (Years 6-10). Students in Years 11-12 undertake the Western Australian Certificate of Education, through the broad range of WACE subjects and specialist programmes.
The International Baccalaureate is a framework that develops students’ awareness about their own learning while delivering the content of the Western Australian Curriculum. IB programmes are designed to engage every student, at every level of ability. They develop creative, critical and reflective thinking skills that set our graduates apart at university and TAFE, and in the workplace.
At Helena, personal growth is as important as intellectual development. We provide opportunities for students to stretch themselves physically, socially and emotionally through the highly regarded sequential camps programme. The camps begin in Pre-primary and conclude with a reflection and goal setting retreat for our Year 12s as they prepare for life beyond school.
Helena College has a strong family and community ethos, with a commitment to fundamental values and close working relationships between student, staff and families. We believe that by working together, we can bring out the best in our future generations.
