    Hi,

    My wife and I are looking to move to Perth in February. I am travelling to Perth on Friday (26th May) for a week with a friend in Cottesloe to do a final recce to visit some schools, clubs etc in order to try and inform our decision.

    I currently have appointments with North Cottesloe Primary School, Subiaco Primary School, Newborough Primary, Deanmore Primary School and Yuluma Primary School. I also plan to visit Shenton College as my daughter will soon be in secondary school.

    Does anyone have any useful perspectives on any of these schools and also about these areas in general. I have been to Perth before and really liked the Scarborough, Cottesloe and Subiaco areas.

    Also my son who will be 8 and my daughter 10 when we arrive like soccer and gymnastics respectively. My son currently plays for a local U-9 team (even though he is 7) and my daughter is a really keen gymnast and has recently won grade 5 in Lancashire. We have seen the grasshopper socceer schools and the GWA for gymnastics. Does anyone know if these would be suitable?

    Grateful in advance for any thoughts or comments?

    Kind regards

    Simon

    Bear in mind that you need to be resident in the catchment area of the school that you wish your children to attend, so perhaps once you have decided on a suitable school (and all you list have good reputation) then look at suitable rentals or properties to buy in that catchment zone.  I can't comment on the soccer and gymnastic part of your post but I am sure someone will shortly.

    Thanks everyone for the feedback - that's very helpful. Yes i'm aware of needing to live in the catchment area and part of the reason for visiting is to get a feel for the area and relative value. I'm looking forward to heading out tomorrow - fingers crossed for the weather :-)
