As a boarder, your child lives in modern and comfortable accommodation in a bush setting.

There are 10 townhouses at the college with supervisors close at hand to guide, help and care for your child out of school hours.
Your child has an array of recreational facilities on site or in close proximity. On site, there are two ovals, an indoor gymnasium/basketball court and recreation facilities including a theatre, games room with pool/foosball table and gym, study areas and three music rehearsal spaces.
The surf of City Beach and Floreat Beach are both within walking distance of the residential college, and the sporting facilities of Perry Lakes and HBF Stadium are also nearby. Two public swimming pools are within a kilometre of the college grounds.
Travelling to and from school is easy with convenient public transport near the college. Students usually travel together and a buddy system is in place so your child can travel with an older student. For the first three weeks or so, supervisors travel with students to ensure they feel confident travelling to and from school.
Perth Modern School, Bob Hawke College and Shenton College students catch a bus close to the college entrance. John Curtin College of the Arts students are driven to the train station so they can catch a train to Fremantle. Churchlands Senior High School are driven to and from school.
College buses take students on outings and transport them to and from shops, sporting/recreational venues, the train station and other agreed locations. Students are also collected from school on college buses if they need to stay until after 5.30pm for school activities, including rehearsals and performances.
In 2019, we opened a new amenities building at the college. This modern space provides a welcoming communal hub for students. It includes a commercial kitchen and dining area, recreation facilities including a theatre, games room and gym, study areas and three music rehearsal spaces.
