Corpus Christi College’s vision 'We are a Catholic Community committed to empowering every learner to serve and enrich our changing world', together with our motto Sequere Dominum, or ‘Follow the Lord’, permeates every aspect of College life. A proud provider of a holistic Catholic co-educational programme for girls and boys from Year 7 to 12, the College is located in the southern suburbs of Perth primarily serving the surrounding Parish communities. For thirty years, the College has developed an excellent reputation with successful academic results over a long period of time, on the sporting field across a range of team sports and in a broad range of cultural and artistic pursuits. Extensive co-curricular activities are available in Christian Service, sport and cultural activities. The school operates within a technology rich environment that enhances the learning experiences in the classroom focussed on innovation and creativity, with a one-to-one digital device programme that spans across all years from 2013. Accelerated programmes are offered in the Senior School, along with a variety of extension programmes and supportive opportunities across the Middle School, ensures students who are gifted are well catered for. All students experience a variety of age-appropriate faith development and service learning opportunities, social activities and a comprehensive Pastoral Care programme enabling them to grow emotionally, in their faith, and mature as young adults. The College also supports an intensive Learning Centre, which offers students individualised assistance in literacy and numeracy, and an Educational Support Centre that provides a range of inclusive educational opportunities for students with disabilities. The College Middle School programme, which is future focussed, enables our students to be independent and interdependent learners who are confident, resilient and committed towards achieving their potential. Students in the Middle Years are encouraged to recognise relationships between school subjects and the world outside. The Pastoral Care programme focuses on building self-belief and self-esteem, providing opportunities for students to develop key life skills to help them cope with challenges at school and beyond. Fully immersed in the smaller community of their pastoral House group from Year 7, students feel a strong sense of belonging from the moment they transition from primary school, commencing in a purpose-built facility, yet experiencing learning experiences facilitated by a range of specialist teachers as they move through the College programmes. All this is achieved by a team of highly qualified and committed staff, teachers who are focussed on ongoing professional development to improve teaching practice, to engage, challenge and support students to excel.
