About Port School

Port is an independent secondary school that aims to engage at risk students in Years 8 – 12 who, for a variety of reasons and situational circumstances, have not been able to achieve success in mainstream school settings. The School offers students small class sizes, hands-on vocational-style learning, personalised and flexible learning groups, community projects, individualised pastoral care and social support through a variety of networks and external service providers.

The School has a strong focus on the development of functional literacy and numeracy skills and offers Maths, English, Health & Human Sciences, Visual Art, Workshop, Cooking and Physical Education/Team Sport as part of the curriculum.

Port Registered Training Organisation delivers Certificate II and III in General Education for Adults, along with a selection of nationally recognised vocational qualifications. Port is committed to supporting students towards successful futures, and offers a range of transition pathways to help achieve this, including workplace learning and school-based traineeships.

Port Mobile Classroom Program seeks to meaningfully engage some of the most disengaged students. The entire syllabus takes place off-site in and around Fremantle and Perth and the program is targeted at those students for whom a more conventional classroom just does not work.

Port Outreach Program works with students who, for various reasons, are unable to engage on the school campus. This program works in conjunction with our Student Support Services Team, offering counselling and support for students and their carers.

In addition, Port offers education programs for young mothers in the Young Parent Centre and for their children, aged 3 months to 5 years, at Port Early Learning Centre, an ACECQA approved provider of early learning services.

Providing a real alternative for adolescents who need a different kind of school.
