Teachers are assisted by a range of accomplished support staff who work collaboratively to ensure that the College culture and environment is operating at its best in every way.

Why work at Helena College?

Helena College is a non-religious, independent, co-educational school, catering for students from Kindergarten to Year 12 in the Perth Hills, 30kms from Perth City.

Across two campuses in Darlington and Glen Forrest, we provide a balanced education, developing the whole child through both inquiry-led and explicit teaching and learning programs as we help prepare students for life beyond Helena College.

Working at Helena College, means you become part of a collaborative community with a commitment to core values and close working relationships between students, staff and families. We also have a demonstrated commitment to teacher and staff professional development, which we regard as central to the practice of lifelong learning.

We believe educating students extends beyond the classroom. We provide a holistic learning programme which includes Outdoor Education, camps, sports, arts, clubs and community projects, for students to develop the key cognitive, social and emotional skills they need to flourish and be active members of our broader community.
— Peter Coombs, Principal
