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.
