Co-education is education for life. Naturally.
Proudly Anglican, All Saints’ College is non-selective, diversity is in our DNA – diversity of our students’ gender, abilities, culture, faith, interests and pathways. The College strives to reflect the diversity of the wider community in which our students will eventually be collaborating, creating and problem-solving and, as a result, we are proud of our ‘grounded’ graduates who, rather than a sense of entitlement, demonstrate in myriad ways their sense of responsibility to their communities.
To this end, and in collaboration with a network of partners, the College curates a rich, ‘personalisable’ learning environment in which students develop a deep and authentic, empathetic and ethical perspective. This sees our young people going beyond the traditional boundaries of education, leading in ‘real world’ environments, co-authoring a future which values creative collaboration and connections.
Our ‘ATAR Plus’ approach recognises - while the vast majority of ASC students strive to achieve the highest possible ATAR and are frequently amongst the top-performing students in the nation - the College’s role in ‘brokering’ for students a range of pathways, whether General, Enterprise or Hybrid.
In nurturing students’ problem-solving and problem-finding mindsets that value innovation and fresh ways of thinking, the College is supported by a strong focus on Design Thinking as well as by entities such as Propeller Industries (our Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship), Runway, our student-run pop-up shop which features their goods and services, and Catalyst, our Centre for Service and Social Enterprise.
Further enriching our young people’s toolkit of future-focused skills is The Agency, an employment agency run specifically for ASC students. Providing highly-valued experience and learning opportunities, The Agency sees our students to use their skills and passions for the betterment of our community, whether that be by taking on a role as a Graphic Designer, Tech Coach, Book Reviewer and so on.
This approach to education prioritises students’ agency and passion, empowering our young people to be architects of their own learning while striving to build mastery in their chosen pursuits.
Underpinning this approach is Djoowak: The Beyond Boundaries Institute (BBI). Launched in 2018, BBI comprises a team of College staff who, along with our students, work with leaders from business, industry and community partners in ensuring the relevance and currency of an ASC education.
And finally, while we know that there are many tangibles that one can measure in a school, the most significant aspect of any learning institution is, in our opinion, intangible - the feeling, the atmosphere, the culture, all of which are dependent upon the relationships in and across the community.
As a College, our highest priority is the nurturing of relationships: our deep understanding of and relationship with ourselves and our place in the world; our students’ relationships with one another (in their own and other year levels); and with our diverse and talented staff - and partner organisations - with whom our students travel this most significant journey.
At ASC, we recognise that, while our focus on the individual and the ‘personalisable’ is critically important to our students’ success, we also appreciate that it is in relationship with others that our students understand how they can most effectively make a positive difference in our world.
All of this, and more, is underpinned by our belief that the College’s central role is to ensure our young people are equipped to step confidently into a future characterised by rapid change, complexity and uncertainty. Such a confidence requires a skillset that includes empathy and ethics, initiative and enterprise, creation and collaboration, and a passion for problem-finding and problem-solving.
This, in turn, allows our young people to ‘know what to do when they don’t know what to do’ – a commonly-heard saying at All Saints’.
All Saints’ College is a unique, world-leading learning community: proudly, Perth’s first Anglican coeducational school, and proudly providing excellence in a coeducational setting from Pre-K to Year 12. Our young people learn beyond the traditional boundaries of education, leading in ‘real world’ environments, co-authoring a future which values creative collaboration and connections.
All Saints' College has a vast cocurricular program, with a range of activites running before, during and afterschool that allow students to explore their interests and passions, and learn new skills.
Students are encouraged to ‘have a go’ and their diverse strengths and talents are nurtured, valued and celebrated throughout the College community. In doing so, students’ involvement in College life contributes greatly to their quality of experience at All Saints’ and helps them develop into well-rounded individuals who are confident and capable.
Cocurricular activities are not available for students in Kindergarten, Pre-primary and Year 1. In the early years of schooling, a full day at school is usually enough for the child to manage happily. As they grow and mature they will be ready for more challenges.
Positive relationships are the cornerstone of the All Saints’ philosophy, from our Early Learning Centre to our most senior years. This culture is developed and based on the College’s lived values of Empathy, Respect, Integrity, Courage (ERIC) and The Leader in Me framework. Such key frameworks help our students grow in self-awareness while building a network of positive relationships with peers, staff, the College and broader communities.
With over 800 students and 110 educators, Senior School, is an environment where all students are known, valued and heard. At the heart of the Senior School experience is wellbeing, and our core focus is on making sure that your young person feels safe and connected as they journey through the Senior School. Supported by a team of pastoral care and teaching and learning specialists, our structures, pedagogy and holistic approach are designed to recognise and grow the individual student’s talents and interests
The importance of relationships is established early in Pre-Kindergarten with a dynamic partnership between parents, students and staff. Students are then encouraged to reach out, forging wider relationships with other students as buddies, and with staff, in other year levels.
The foundation for positive relationships with families is a core focus at the beginning of each year with our ‘Meet the Teacher’ evenings across the Junior School. We also value and schedule one-to-one meetings, with a focus on getting to know each child and family. This is supported by ongoing dialogue between the College and home throughout the year, and the visibility of student learning through SeeSaw.
The House system at All Saints’ provides a sense of belonging and responsibility to a wider group across the whole College. While secure with strong relationships in their Tutor Group, wider relationships are forged throughout the College via, for instance, our broad array of service opportunities which are curated by Catalyst, the College’s Centre for Service and Social Enterprise.
