Secondary School

For Years 7 to 12

St Brigid’s College is dedicated to providing its students with an excellent education that prepares them for their future endeavours. The Secondary School curriculum has been specifically designed to provide opportunities for students to develop skills and attitudes that will allow them to make informed choices about their future. The College recognises that each student has unique needs, interests, and strengths, and thus offers a wide range of subjects to cater to their individual requirements.

Years 7 to 9

In Years 7 to 9, it is recognised that our young women face challenges associated with the transition as they move from being children to becoming young adults. At St Brigid’s, various middle schooling methodologies are adapted to ease this period of transition and to ensure that St Brigid’s maximises the learning opportunities for all students.

The Western Australian Curriculum is the mandated curriculum for the planning, assessment and reporting of student progress. We challenge our girls to reach their potential, serve the wider community and understand that education is an instigator of change.


Year 7-9s have a large selection of Co-curricular activities to participate in before, during and after school. Click here for a full list of available activities.

Years 10 to 12

Students are provided with the necessary skills to meet the challenges of the 21st century with faith and hope. At St Brigid’s, we recognise the challenges associated with the transition that young people experience as they move from being children to becoming adults. Students are encouraged to develop new skills in time management and independent learning, as the academic rigour of their courses increases.

Students are encouraged to pursue personal excellence in a nurturing environment that focuses on the development of the whole person. Interpersonal and self-management skills, which are a vital part of becoming independent and responsible life-long learners, are at the heart of the Secondary School philosophy.

St Brigid’s College challenges young women to take on a responsible role in the wider local, national and international communities and to be proactive members of our society. There are many opportunities for leadership and service provided. All students are encouraged to develop their personal qualities and strengths by participating in programmes, and in the exceptional range of co-curricular sporting and cultural opportunities offered.
