An independent school in the Perth hills for boys and girls from Kindergarten to Year 12

Helena College is a secular, values-based school catering for Kindergarten to Year 5 at our Darlington Campus and Years 6-12 at our Glen Forrest Campus.

We provide a balanced education focused on developing the whole child. Our students are stretched academically through inquiry based learning delivered within the International Baccalaureate Middle Years and Primary Years Programmes. The Glen Forrest campus attained IB World School status in 2012. Our Darlington Campus is in the candidacy phase of becoming an IB World School. Students in Years 11-12 undertake the Western Australian Certificate of Education.

IB programmes are inclusive of all ability levels and hence are designed to engage every student. The creative and critical thinking skills developed through the IB serve our graduates well 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. Presented as ‘challenge by choice’, 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.

At Helena College, we have 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.
