Aranmore Catholic College is a co-educational school for Years 7 - 12. We are located in Leederville, just off vibrant Oxford Street, a mere 3 kilometres from the Perth CBD. As soon as you walk onto our campus, you will quickly discern three special things about our school: we have a long and rich history, we have happy students and a high teacher to student ratio which allows us to get to know each and every child. What this all means for your child is they enjoy a first class education, underpinned by traditional values, in a safe, supportive environment.
Aranmore’s rich history dates back to 1903 when the Sisters of Mercy founded our school. There were several name changes over the ensuing century before we reverted to Aranmore in 1986 with the amalgamation of St Mary’s Girls School and Christian Brothers’ College Leederville.
From our inception, we have always welcomed new migrants to Australia. Today, we are proud to boast over 60 nationalities amongst our students. Not only does this reflect the diversity of the WA population, it encourages our students to look at issues from a global perspective.
The diversity of our student population is even more remarkable when you consider we only have 700 students. Our relatively small student number allows us to understand each child’s strengths and weaknesses. Because we are small, we can tailor our teaching programs to suit the individual needs of each child, ensuring your child is not only cared for but challenged – it’s called Student Centred Learning and it is the basis of our education model.
