Frederick Irwin Anglican Secondary School provides a comprehensive programme for children from Year 7 to Year 12, catering for the intellectual, social, physical, emotional and spiritual needs of each child.

In recognising each child’s individuality, we aim to provide learning opportunities which are designed to take account of the student’s interests, ability and potential. We believe this can only be achieved in a happy and stimulating environment where a feeling of mutual respect exists between teachers, children and parents.

Students in Secondary School are placed into Houses, where they start the day during Home Room Period. Students then have either set timetables (Year 7, 8 and 9) or personalised timetables (Year 10, 11 and 12).

Our one school concept creates flexibility and enables a wider variety of teaching programmes and learning environments to be utilised.


  • Parents will be regularly informed about a student’s progress;
  • Information gathered by assessment for Year 7 is formally communicated to parents on two occasions during the year, with detailed reports provided at the end of Terms 2 and 4. Student learning is also shared twice a year at the Year 7 Learning Journeys;
  • Interim Reports are issued at the end of Term 1 for Years 11 and 12, and early in Term 2 for Years 8, 9 and 10;
  • Full Academic Reports are issued at the end of Term 2 for Years 8 to 12, and at the end of Term 4 for Years 8 to 11; and
  • Years 11 and 12 students also receive a Statement of Results in Term 4.

Parent/Teacher interviews are organised to give parents and teachers the opportunity to meet to discuss student progress. Years 8, 11 and 12 evenings are held early in Term 2, and Years 9 and 10 evenings are held early in Term 3.

Parents will be informed at any time when it is identified that there is a risk of the student not:

  • Completing the subject requirements
  • Achieving their potential
  • Meeting WACE requirements

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care and concern for each individual are at the heart of Frederick Irwin Anglican School.

Frederick Irwin Anglican School encourages fostering strong interpersonal relationships and developing trust and mutual respect throughout our community, through the respectful relationships that our students build with each other and with staff members.

We aim to empower our students to establish their own identity, meet challenges with resilience and to develop the confidence to make sound judgements and autonomous decisions.
