Work to start on a new secondary school in Subiaco
A vibrant, innovative and imaginative secondary education for students – that’s the vision for the new college in the heart of Subiaco opening in 2020.
It will provide families in the area with access to a brand new school for their children close to home with world-class facilities and equipment to support teachers and students.
Inner City College (planning name) will host the highly regarded Gifted and Talented Secondary Selective Academic Program, with a first intake of 32 students in Year 7 in 2020. Children from across the State can apply for this program.
With shared facilities, such as Subiaco Oval and the college’s playing courts and gymnasium, it will play an integral role in bringing the community closer together.
The college is being designed with both its setting and its community in mind – an inner city education facility for families who embrace inner city living.
The college’s environmental footprint will be minimised through the use of three and four storey buildings that are universally accessible and incorporate passive design principles.
Initially opening with 250 Year 7 students in 2020, the college will grow to around 2000 year 7 to 12 students by 2025.
Inner City College’s first stage building program is estimated to cost $68 million.
The forward works for this stage include site preparation to allow construction of the main works for the new college. An experienced civil works contractor will undertake this work.
We will provide regular information to Subiaco residents and businesses through these project updates.
The college is part of the exciting new Subi East renewal project that will transform Subiaco Oval surrounds and the Princess Margaret Hospital site into a vibrant place for living, learning and leisure.
