Helena College provides a balanced education, developing the whole child through the inquiry-based International Baccalaureate (IB). The IB is a framework for teaching and learning that enhances each student’s engagement with the content of the Western Australian curriculum.

Put simply, the WA curriculum determines what our students learn and the IB determines how they are taught. Students develop into independent learners with strong personal values and a global outlook.

The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) is for students from Kindy to Year 5 in the Junior School at the Darlington Campus) and the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) is for students from Year 6 to Year 9 in Middle School at the Glen Forrest Campus.  In Year 10, students undertake a transition programme designed to support them in the change from the language and approach of the IB to that of the WACE system.

Our Years 11-12 students work towards their Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) either through an ATAR programme, which some students combine with General courses, or through a programme incorporating General courses and at least one VET course.  The broad offering of subjects and specialist programmes ensures our graduates have a range of options upon leaving school.

We are committed to providing a child-safe environment through our Child Protection Programme. To learn more about policies and procedures that address the care, safety and welfare of students, visit our Child Protection page.
