On behalf of all Kent Street Senior High School staff, I warmly welcome you and your children to our exceptional school. We pride ourselves on having a dedicated team of excellent teachers and support staff that are committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for all students.

Our purpose is to ensure that all students at Kent Street Senior High School leave school well prepared for their future and have opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to achieve their individual potential. Kent Street prides itself on the wide variety of pathways to success we offer all students and ensure they are well supported in their endeavour to achieve.

Kent Street is well known for its Aviation, CoRE, Cricket and Fashion / Arts Design Specialist Programs. In addition to these programs, the school offers a broad range of secondary schooling curriculum. We cater to the diverse backgrounds, interests, aptitudes and needs of our student body from Years 7 to 12. Our Senior School courses include both Tertiary and Vocational courses which lead to your child achieving the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE). We are proud of our rich cultural diversity and adapt our curriculum offerings to meet identified needs.

As a Positive Behaviour Support school, we empower your child to choose respect, be self-aware and compassionate to others. Our staff members are committed to leading educational programs that maximise student engagement through developing high order thinking skills that will equip them for the future. To enrich your child’s experience at our school, many of our students take part in extracurricular clubs, as well as national and international excursions that provide unique learning opportunities and life experiences.

The school's excellent facilities and resources include a swimming pool, gymnasium, fitness centre, performing arts centre, aviation centre, two aeroplanes, excellent library facilities, turf wickets and extensive grounds. Our Curtin Trade Training Centre, located on site at Kent Street, provides industry standard learning opportunities in state-of-the-art facilities.

We have long-standing partnerships with industry and the community for the ultimate benefit of your child. Our relationship with partners such as Virgin Australia Regional Airlines, the WACA, the Kentian Society, Chevron, Rotary and the Rotary Residential College provide many excellent opportunities not available elsewhere.

As parents and guardians, you are the first and most important educator in your child’s life, and here at Kent Street we value your participation and feedback. A partnership founded on strong relationships between students, teachers, parents and the community are the enduring platform upon which the school is built. Together we can achieve focused academic goals, and social and emotional growth for all students.

I invite parents of prospective students to book an appointment to tour the school and discuss your expectations and needs for your child’s education.

We look forward, with great anticipation, to getting to know you and your child.
