Frederick Irwin Anglican School is one of the oldest Independent schools in the Peel Region.

The School opened in February 1991 with 175 students and now has 1530 students from Kindergarten to Year 12.

The school grounds and facilities have developed considerably since foundation, with the most recent additions of the Year 7 Transition Centre and the Rush Chapel, which was completed in July 2016.

Since its inception, the School has aimed continually to provide excellent facilities to further student academic, athletic and cultural opportunities for our students.

2011 saw the foundation Principal, Mr Geoffrey Arnold, hand the School over to its second Principal, Ms Kerry Robertson, to continue and grow the School into the 21st Century.

In 2018, Frederick Irwin Anglican School (with the Anglican Schools Commission Inc.) opened the Halls Head Campus, allowing the intake of more primary students across two campuses within the Mandurah community.

At Frederick Irwin we strongly believe that for students to reach their potential, they must have access to a wide range of facilities in order to enhance developing skill sets.

Alongside these facilities, the School also believes that students must also be able to work in different and relaxing environments, and so has created welcoming open grassed areas between buildings and encourage students to utilise these areas during recess, lunch, and occasionally during class time.

The House system is used to develop the feeling of unity and cooperation. It builds school spirit and a sense of community.

In Primary, each House is led by a House Coordinator who is a member of the teaching staff.

These House Coordinators facilitate and support the participation and well-being of students within their House at events and activities throughout the calendar year. Classroom teachers take pastoral care responsibility for the students in their own classrooms and are assigned to a particular House. As a professional and supportive learning community, the leadership team and teaching staff approach pastoral care together, ensuring that each student feels comfortable, safe and encouraged.

Houses are made up of students from Kindergarten to Year 6 with each student assigned to one of the six Houses. Siblings are assigned to the same House.



Pastoral Care underpins all that is done at Frederick Irwin Anglican School. In the Secondary School, Pastoral Care is primarily delivered via the House System.

Each student is assigned to one of the six Houses; each House is led by a Head of House and Assistant Head of House. Each House has seven House Groups with a House Group Teacher assigned to each.

House Groups are made up of students from Years 8 to 12 with Year 7s joining the House Groups at the start of Term 3 as part of the Year 7 Transition programme. Siblings are assigned to the same House and are often in the same House Group.

The Heads of House, together with the House Group Teachers, provide support in all aspects of a student’s life at school; helping them to achieve academically whilst overseeing their social and mental health and well-being. House Groups meet together at the start of every day.

Students at Frederick Irwin Anglican School have access to a number of orange school bus and Transperth bus services, operating in and out of the School for both before-school and after-school services.

Students should be aware of which bus number and what time they need to be at the bus bay in order to board the correct service.

Frederick Irwin Anglican School staff are in attendance after-school to monitor the buses as they enter and leave the school grounds, as well as to help drivers of cars to navigate student pick-ups once the final bell for the day has rung.

Please see the link below to identify which bus service is best for your child/ren.

For more information, please also use Transperth’s Journey Planner.

Each semester we open our doors to the wider community, so prospective parents and families can see how the School inspires learning and see firsthand the facilities their children will be using.

Our Open Morning will give insight into the academic, co-curricular and sporting activities the School has to offer. Families will also be taken on a tour around the school facilities and be able to chat with key members of staff.

Frederick Irwin Anglican School offers an array of academic, cultural and sporting opportunities to all students who attend the School. Our students also have access to new digital technologies and the ability to experience current learning programmes which enhance their learning potential. Student leadership programmes within the pastoral areas of the School encourage our students to extend and challenge themselves.

Students in both Primary and Secondary are encouraged to participate and engage in learning with a positive and mindful attitude, aligning with the Core Values of the School: Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Compassion and Courage.

It is with much pleasure that I welcome you to the Frederick Irwin Anglican School website.

Our school is a vibrant place of learning where our students are valued as individuals. I hope that, as you explore the website, it will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of our school, our values and the extensive opportunities which we offer our students.

As a school of the Anglican Schools Commission (Inc.), we are proud of our Anglican tradition, broad based curriculum, current pedagogy and holistic approach to education, all of which support our Mission Statement: To provide a high quality, inclusive, caring Christian education which encourages students to fulfil their potential. 

While academic achievement is promoted and valued, outstanding effort is also celebrated. Our students are encouraged to be creative thinkers and inquiring learners, and the curriculum and co-curricular programmes are designed to assist them to build resilience, develop confidence in their own abilities and strive to achieve their personal best.

Our Core Values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Compassion and Courage inform our educational philosophy and practice; while our pastoral system underpins all that we do and seeks to provide a caring and supportive environment.

Our community is inclusive and diverse, and our students are nurtured to show their care and compassion for others within the community and beyond.
