FOUNDED in 1846, Mercedes Col­lege is WA’s old­est sec­ondary school of­fer­ing young women an out­stand­ing Catholic education based on the Mercy val­ues of com­pas­sion, jus­tice, ex­cel­lence, in­tegrity and ser­vice.

The city lo­ca­tion acts as a class­room pro­vid­ing stu­dents with a range of re­sources to en­hance learn­ing.

A nur­tur­ing en­vi­ron­ment ex­ists where staff take the time to know stu­dents’ strengths and chal­lenges.

The voice of the stu­dent is recog­nised through meet­ings with Year 12 stu­dents, the Stu­dent Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Coun­cil and Col­lege Ex­ec­u­tive.

The learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment pro­vides ac­cess to the lat­est tech­nolo­gies which are in­te­grated across the whole cur­ricu­lum.

The col­lege is recog­nised for ex­cep­tional per­form­ing arts op­por­tu­ni­ties, in­clud­ing an an­nual school mu­si­cal which was re­cently awarded joint win­ner of the Catholic Per­form­ing Arts Festival for Best School Sec­ondary Mu­si­cal.

Education is seen as a shared re­spon­si­bil­ity be­tween the fam­ily and a high level of mu­tual re­spect, sup­port and com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween home and school is an es­sen­tial com­po­nent in the education of young peo­ple. Stu­dents walk in the foot­steps of a long line of other women who have been ed­u­cated in the Mercy tra­di­tion.
