Principal's Welcome

Welcome to St Brigid's College, where approximately 1300 students aged 3 to 17 Years, from across Western Australia learn to become principled, inquiring, knowledgeable, thinking, communicators, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective lifelong learners confident in their place as contributing citizens and leaders in the world. Boarding, for girls only in Years 7-12, is a unique opportunity to learn about caring for one another.

St Brigid's College (SBC), situated in the green hills 25 minutes east of Perth, regularly demonstrates that our educational programme, facilities, resources, qualifications of teaching staff, management practices, enrolment and attendance procedures, and duty of care for students meet acceptable standards, it continues to be registered under the Schools Education Act 1999 of Western Australia.

As a Catholic school established by the Mercy Sisters we are inspired by our association with the Mercyworld and we are guided by the Mandate of the Catholic Bishops of Western Australia and the policies of the Catholic Education Commission of Western Australia.

In addition, SBC is the first Catholic school in Western Australia to have been authorised to offer the Middle Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate Organisation.

Being registered by local education authorities and being an IB World School provides parents with a number of assurances that students at St Brigid's College are receiving holistic quality education across important areas.

Parents know that the school:

  • is undergoing a rigorous self-assessment.

  • is being evaluated by a team of experienced professionals.

  • meets high academic and professional standards.

  • is subject to regular visits and monitoring by external agencies.

  • is continually planning future developments and seeking to improve our performance as part of the ongoing nature of the evaluation process.

Parents too play a crucial role at SBC. They are partners in their children's education and help to make the school a welcoming and warm environment. Working in partnership with families, dedicated staff members do everything they can to make each family's stay happy and rewarding as we recognise that the strength of the partnership between the students, parents and staff at St Brigid's determines the degree of our success.
