John Willcock College is a dedicated Middle School which is large enough to provide a range of options, yet still small enough to be able to look after the personal growth of our students with a strong pastoral care program.
The College is divided into 5 Sub Schools. Each Sub School has a Sub School Leader who coordinates a team of 5 teachers (English, Maths, Science, S&E and Health Education).
The Sub School structure has a team focus and is designed to develop closer relationships between teachers, students and families/caregivers. It enables all stakeholders (school and home) to collaboratively respond to student needs by providing support, encouragement and assisting in problem solving as the need arises.
Academic excellence is actively promoted in all areas and students are encouraged to excel. The College presently conducts two academic extension classes – one in year 8 and one in year 9. Literacy programs and additional classroom support are offered to students who experience difficulties in their learning. This enables students to cope and improve in all their areas of learning.
Students participate in various national competitions such as the Australian Mathematics, Science, English, Writing and Computer Studies Competitions; Tournament of Minds (mixed Year 8 and 9). Music and drama performances/competitions also provide opportunities for students in the Arts. The opportunity for participation in inter-school sporting events is also a part of the broad curriculum on offer at John Willcock College.
We provide cutting edge initiatives where every student is provided with a notebook computer to enhance learning experiences. This sets John Willcock apart as the only government school in Western Australia with this level of technology.
Students at John Willcock College receive instruction in all 8 Curriculum learning areas by qualified specialist teachers. The learning teams provide instruction in Physical and Health Education, English, Maths, Science and Society and Environment. In addition, all students can access a range of options offered and provided by specialist teachers in Languages Other Than English, The Arts and Technology and Enterprise.
We look forward to your child joining our college and if you require further information, don't hesitate to phone us on (08) 9965 8300
