New Secondary School for Western Suburbs

The Minister for Education, the Hon Peter Collier MLC, has announced that a new secondary school will be built on the former City Beach High School site. The new school will open for Year 7 students in 2020 and expand to Year 12 students by 2025.

The new City Beach College (planning name) will reduce enrolment pressure on our school, and is part of a plan to address secondary enrolment growth in the western suburbs.

Another part of the Government's announcement that may affect families at our school is the changes to the local intake areas for our school, Churchlands Senior High School and Shenton College to accommodate a local intake area for the new City Beach College.

While an announcement about these changes will be made in 2017, students enrolled at their local secondary school in 2019 will be able to complete their schooling at that school. Younger siblings of these students will be able to commence their secondary schooling at that school as long as the older sibling is also enrolled. Once commenced, siblings will be able to complete their schooling at that school.

To find out more, there is a copy of the email to parents and factsheet for parents below.

For more information on the western suburbs secondary schooling plan, please visit the Department of Education website.

We will keep parents and our local community informed of developments as they occur.
