Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Byford Secondary College

Working together to provide effective learning experiences where we all grow and students are prepared for a successful life beyond school.

Welcome to our college website where I trust that you will find the information you need and are able to get a strong sense of our friendly and welcoming community.  Our state of the art college is nestled on 13.5 hectares at the foot of the Perth hills. Our beautiful grounds provide our college community with a wonderful opportunity to really enjoy learning together so that every person can be their best. 

Our moral purpose to work together to provide effective learning experience where we all grow and students are prepared for a successful life beyond school captures our intention to meet the needs of our young people so they can succeed and achieve their dreams.

Our expansive college facilities and the positive moral intention of our staff allows us to cater for a range of students with varying abilities and aspirations. Students with special needs enjoy a vibrant learning experience both in our Integrated Facility and across our mainstream setting.  Our diverse, practical and contemporary curriculum supports the development of each young person’s skills, attitudes and aspirations so that they are able to pursue their interests and aspirations whilst being well prepared to live and work in the 21st century.  We are committed to supporting all students as they develop their career aspirations and actively plan their pathway towards achieving whatever they wish in their life beyond school.

We proudly acknowledge that our college stands on the country of the Wadjuk people. We recognise the amazing contributions that first nations people make to us all growing and learning together.  Our first nations students lead a rich cultural experience guided by an exemplary Follow the Dream program and Indigenous Education Officer. Our whole community continues to benefit from the history and teaching of our first peoples and we hope to continue to understand and respect each other in a climate of reconciliation.

Our hope is that you are inspired by what you see on our website and you choose to take the next step to be a part of our community.  You are welcome to contact us and join one of our regular tours of the college campus and learn more.  If you choose, our enrolment information can be easily found on this website.

We look forward to the opportunity to work in partnership with you in the future.
