I often ask prospective parents to consider, What makes Helena different? 

Helena is certainly an academic school, providing the right environment for the majority of our students to achieve WACE results that qualify them for entry to the university of their choice. For others, our general course study programme enables them to make strong applications for challenging TAFE courses.

It is no more or less than any school should offer - so what makes Helena different?

At Helena College, from Kindergarten to Year 12, we focus on developing the whole person, equipping each child with the skills and knowledge to fully embrace life after school.

Academically we stretch our students through an inquiry-based approach to learning, delivered within the renowned International Baccalaureate Primary Years (K-5) and Middle Years (6-10) Programmes. We offer specialist classes right from Kindergarten, so even our youngest students stretch themselves through Physical Education, Indonesian, Performing Arts and Computing as well as core curriculum subjects.

From Pre-primary to Year 12, our students stretch themselves physically and emotionally through our integrated camps programme, with age appropriate experiences to enhance resilience and personal growth as well as forging strong relationships. Relationships are the basis of school culture and must be built on a foundation of mutual respect. Respect, tolerance and empathy are the cornerstones of the value system at Helena College.

There’s no doubt our unique environment also makes Helena special. The natural bush setting enhances learning at our Darlington Campus for Kindergarten to Year 5 students, and at our Glen Forrest Campus, home to the Middle School (Years 6-9) and Upper School (Years 10-12). At Helena College heart, mind and body align to affirm independence, self-motivation, and responsibility for self, others and the environment. I invite you to visit us and experience it for yourself.

I look forward to welcoming you into the Helena family.

Ian Lyons, College Principal

About Us

At Helena College we are very proud of both our bush environment and our facilities, which are in harmony with the surrounding bushland, the flora and fauna.
The Darlington campus (Kindergarten to Year 6) is set on two hectares of tranquil bush overlooking hills, valleys and, in the distance, the city of Perth. The grounds include extensive areas for nature play and sporting activities. Facilities include the Helena House Hall, library, computing room, visual arts room, pottery centre, languages room, performing arts centre and Early Childhood Centre.

The Glen Forrest Campus (Years 6-12) is on an 8.3 hectare site in Bilgoman Road. The facilities include a sporting and recreation complex, a performing arts centre which provides a cultural venue for the College and the surrounding hills community. A purpose-built media centre provides the opportunity for students to develop practical skills in television, film and video production. The library is a student hub for on-line learning, research, reading and recreation. There is a purpose built Year 6 Junior Middle School facility which opened in February 2016.
Helena College is an IB school, delivering the outcomes of the Australian Curriculum through the inquiry based Primary Years Programme for Pre-primary to Year 5, at the Darlington Campus, and the Middle Years Programme for Years 6-10 at the Glen Forrest Campus. We offer the broad range of WACE course in Years 11-12.
All members of the Helena College community are guided by these values:

Respect
Responsibility
Honesty
Understanding
Tolerance
Inclusion
Personal excellence
Freedom
To provide innovative, educational programs of study and extra-curricular activities which empower individuals to accept challenges, extend personal boundaries and be active contributors to society.
We seek to nurture individuality and self-worth in all members of our community while providing opportunities to strive for personal excellence, develop resiliency and demonstrate initiative.

Transport Options

Helena College bus runs take students to and from Darlington, Gidgegannup, Lesmurdie, Midland and Mount Helena. There is also a free bus each day that travels from the Glen Forrest Campus to the Darlington Campus in the morning, and then does the reverse journey in the afternoon.

Bus routes are reviewed at the beginning of each year to best accommodate student needs.

Wherever possible buses will stop at a location that is most convenient for the student.
