Choosing a school & International School of WA

    Recommended Posts

    I am looking for advice on schools in Perth.  We are moving at the end of the year and my son who is 8 will be starting year 4.  I have sent an applcation to All Saints school in Bull Creek, which currently doesn't have space but we are hoping a vacancy becomes available.  We are wanting a back up in case this doesn't happen and have been looking into the International School of Western Australia in City Beach.  Does anyone have any experience / opinions on ISWA?  Can you make any recommendations on other good state or private co-Ed primary schools (preferably without a strong religious element)?

    thanks

    Are you thinking of living in the Bull Creek area?  Most public schools have a catchment area.

    It very much depends on whether we get a place at All Saints.  It's a private school so catchment area isn't an issue.  Where we live is very much dependent on which school we go for.  If we don't get a place at All Saints then we are thinking of choosing a catchment area of a top state school - but which are the good ones?

    Shenton College, Churchlands and Rossmoyne are considered some of the best state schools.

    These are state High Schools though and the OP's  son is in year 4.   

    @Kellydud are you only considering private schools?

    Didn't read the OP properly, apologies.

    Hi, if you're considering around the Bull Creek area then Rostrata Primary in Willetton is excellent, you have to live in Willetton catchment area though. This would then lead on to Willetton Senior High School which has a very good reputation. I have daughters in both schools and would recommend both. Think Willetton out performed Rossmoyne for results last year.  Jen

    Just be mindful that whilst they may be feeder schools - you will have to reside in the catchment area of the HS

    I think  you will find that Bullcreek PS, Bateman PS and Oberthur PS catchment areas are split between Rossmoyne, Willetton and Leeming High Schools.   It will depend on where you live in those suburbs as to which High School is the catchment area.   It used to be that Parry Avenue/Burrendah Avenue was the catchment boundary, but I am not sure how that works these days.
