Middle School

Providence Christian College provides a specific Middle School programme that caters for students in Years 7 to 9 that is aimed at meeting the particular needs of students in this age group.

At this stage of their development, peers strongly influence students and they typically question previously accepted conventions, practices and values. They are also developing an awareness of social issues, acquiring personal interests, and have a strong need to belong. Students are supported by teaching staff who understand this developmental stage and can relate positively to their students.

Christian Education

The emphasis on values is designed to reinforce and further develop a Christian worldview, providing students with a foundation from which they can examine and explore broader community and social issues. The main objectives of the Middle School programme include:

  • Providing students with a smooth transition from Primary to Secondary schooling.
  • Ensuring pastoral care is provided by staff who know the students and understand their needs.
  • Providing flexibility in programming to ensure that students are given a variety of opportunities to achieve to the best of their abilities.
  • Assisting students in the identification and development of their gifts and interests.
  • Providing learning support where necessary.
  • Extending gifted and talented students.
  • Preparing every student for Senior Schooling in their final years at the College.
  • Encouraging positive peer interaction.
  • Building a sense of community and commitment with one another.

The Middle School curriculum, developed to meet the requirements of the Western Australian Curriculum, places significant emphasis on collaborative learning, integrated work units and values education. It is designed to support the building of relationships and assist our students in finding their place in the community. In doing so, our programs are intended to motivate interest in the wider community and guide students in their understanding of the world around them.

The Middle School curriculum places an emphasis on acquiring literacy and numeracy skills in an integrated approach across the core curriculum:

  • English
  • Humanities & Social Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Health
  • Physical Education
  • Languages – Indonesian
  • Biblical Studies

In addition to the core curriculum and compulsory subjects, students engage with a variety of Interest Subjects and Electives, including:

Our Middle School curriculum is designed to keep students interested and engaged with their learning while helping them to understand their abilities and explore their limits in readiness for entry into the Senior School and its various pathways.

Senior School

Senior School life is challenging, varied, and exciting; providing a variety of new possibilities for our students.

Providence Christian College encourages Senior School students to strive for educational excellence, endeavouring to achieve to the best of their ability and are well prepared to achieve the WACE Certificate and a pathway to University, TAFE or the workforce.

Christian Education

Our Senior School students receive positive support from committed teachers and in most cases small classes. Our students benefit from the close attention that smaller numbers in classes afford and are well prepared for the rigours of further study at a Tertiary level or entry into the workplace.

Students also enjoy the pastoral care and support from Form Teachers during these pressure-filled final years of their schooling. Every student in their final year is supported and mentored by a staff member by way of counsel, assistance, encouragement and prayer to help reach their full potential and goal of achieving the WACE Certificate.


The Senior School curriculum builds on the foundation laid by the Academic and Interest Subject programmes offered in Middle School. In Senior School we fine-tune those skills by offering students a wide range of learning experiences and the support of enthusiastic Christian teachers who are there to listen, advise and inspire.

The College provides a range of courses for those choosing the Tertiary (ATAR) Pathway and a variety of courses and certificates for those choosing the Vocational (General) Pathway, assisting students with the opportunity to achieve their personal goals and ambitions.

The core focus of the Senior School curriculum lies in fostering a holistic development of students' literacy and numeracy skills through an integrated approach across:

  • English
  • Humanities & Social Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Sciences
  • Sport & Recreation
  • Biblical Studies

In addition to the core curriculum and compulsory subjects, students engage with a variety of Electives, including:

Students in the Senior School are provided with the opportunity of getting a real taste of the workplace through the Work Experience Programme in Year 10 and the Workplace Learning Programme in Years 11 & 12.

Student Leadership

Our Secondary students are encouraged to participate in service and leadership roles within the College community, including mentoring younger students, leading College worship, serving as Prefects and Chairpersons on a variety of committees, leading their allocated house to victory in the sporting and academic fields as a House Captain, or serving on the College Student Council.
