Top 5 Primary Schools Around Perth

We understand that moving your family halfway around the world is no easy decision to make. If you’re going to make Perth your new home, you’ll want to make sure that your children are happy and much of that comes down to their education. To help make your decision on where you’re going to live, these are the top 5 primary schools around Perth.

Ranford Primary School, Canning Vale

There’s a high standard in everything that Ranford Primary School does. From well-kept grounds to individual student achievement and teaching practices, this independent public school is excellent across the board. Encouraging commitment, friendship, co-operation and responsibility, students are motivated to learn with strong social interaction and positive attitudes. This is implemented through a Communication Diary and the attitude and effort sticker every Friday.

East Hamilton Hill Primary School, Hamilton Hill

There’s a strong community feel at East Hamilton Hill Primary School that will no doubt help your child(ren) settle in comfortably. A fairly small independent public school with 160 students, the pupil to staff ratio is excellent and there’s a core focus on literacy and numeracy. Located just 7km from the centre of Fremantle, the school is well-placed for families located near the harbour town.

Rosalie Primary School, Shenton Park

This is one of the best city schools close to Perth CBD and the University of WA. With specialist teachers in music and French, state-of-the-art facilities and environmental projects, the learning opportunities are diverse and well-rounded. Students are encouraged to show off their musical talents during the lunchtime sessions of Musical Bites, they can even get creative with the Artist-in-Residence Program, during which they learn about different techniques from printmaking to sculpture and woodwork.

South Ballajura Primary School, Ballajura

With an accompanying Education Support Centre, learning programs are offered to students with special needs in South Ballajura. Students can improve language skills, social skills, money skills, integration skills and physical activity in a range of stimulating environments. In the primary school, literacy and numeracy are the main focus, but programs are optimised for full development potential including ICT. According to the Year 3 and 5 NAPLAN proficiency band data, they are seen to be outperforming “like schools” in literacy.

Churchlands Primary School, Floreat

Close enough to Perth CBD but far enough away to enjoy leafy surroundings of the suburb of Floreat, Churchlands Primary School is a great place for your child(ren) to learn and develop into independent students. Literacy and numeracy have a strong focus, but there’s also a program for the musically gifted with tuition in piano, clarinet, violin, trumpet and more. Japanese is the second language taught to students in years 3 to 6.
