Welcome to all our new families for 2021 and to all our continuing Atwell College families. At Atwell College student learning is at the centre of everything we do. Our staff work hard to deliver engaging and relevant education programs to all of our students in a safe and supportive learning environment.  Our staff believes that every student is capable of making progress in their learning, given the appropriate teaching and support. They strive to deliver engaging, high impact lessons which meet the diverse learning needs of their students. The staff is dedicated to providing all students with a positive and engaging learning experience. The use of contemporary technology is an integral part of the teaching, learning and working environment.

Atwell College is a modern and progressive government secondary school in the suburb of Atwell, south of the Perth metropolitan area. The college has grown with the area and now accommodates approximately 1400 students from within the Atwell College intake area. Our combined purpose is to provide every student the opportunity to maximise their learning, achieve their potential and transition into a meaningful post-school pathway in a safe, supportive and engaging learning environment. Multiple educational pathways provide direct connection and opportunity for further study at University, TAFE or other Training Organisations and Employment once students leave our college.

The high quality academic and vocational curriculum is supported by a large variety of cultural, artistic and sporting extracurricular programs and activities to enhance the educational experience for all students.

The money you provide through Student Contributions and Charges are vital in continuing to maintain student equipment and resources to provide your child with the best opportunity for success. We have done our best in requesting the lowest possible Contributions and Charges to enable us to keep the standards you rightfully would expect.  The Contributions and Charges are calculated on the basis of all parents paying their fair share and I encourage you to make payments as early in the year as your finances allow.

Atwell College strives to be an active participant in the community, seeking opportunities to form partnerships which enhance opportunities for our students. Successful schooling involves a collaboration between the school, parents and the community. We are all partners in the education of our students, assisting in building character, strengthening social values and enabling the opportunity to achieve success.

Our college would not be the success it is without your ongoing support and we look forward to working with you throughout 2021 as we endeavour to provide every student the opportunity to grow in their learning and develop into responsible young adults who move into meaningful pathways beyond school. Please browse through our website to discover the excellent educational opportunities your child will enjoy at Atwell College.
