Kelmscott has a proud reputation of achievement in the qualitative sciences, arts, education and on the sporting field. The positive ethos prevailing within the school is reflected by all the students wearing their school uniform with pride and by the fact that the demand for placements at the school far exceeds the number of positions available.
As one of the largest secondary schools in the state, Kelmscott Senior High School is able to offer an outstanding range of educational resources. Well resourced faculty areas of English, Mathematics, Science, Society & Environment, Computing, Home Economics, Design & Technology, Business, LOTE, Photography, Media, Theatre, Music and Art provide a stimulating working environment. In addition, the school Library, Farm and Internet laboratories provide resources that are utilized across the curriculum.
With large student numbers, subjects can be offered in a wide variety of combinations in the timetable to meet the needs of student ability and course preference. This rich curriculum offering gives the school the capacity to meet the requirements of students without compromising choice.
With an ethos based on care and co-operation, the school has given a very high priority to pastoral care. The Gell Centre, named after a former principal, is a physical testimony to this commitment. The administrative and students services teams are committed to a caring positive learning environment. The school acts decisively in addressing issues of disruptive behaviour and bullying. The reputation of the school has been built on the foundations of care with consistent and fair discipline systems.
Kelmscott Senior High School enjoys success and a high profile in sport. A large range sports are offered as extra curricula activities during the school year. The specialist Athletics program gives a central focus to our commitment to promoting achievement in sport.
