Welcome to Western Suburbs State Special School

Western Suburbs State Special School seeks to provide an educational environment which will support students in gaining the necessary skills and confidence to engage happily in the community. The school believes all students have the potential to learn and should be provided appropriate and engaging learning experiences which will support appropriate positive post school pathways for its diverse student cohort. 

The school caters to students who have an intellectual disability, autistic spectrum disorder or multiple impairment from the age of five to seventeen years, with the potential to extend their learning by a further year.  The curriculum delivered uses the Australian Curriculum and Standards for students in Years Prep to Year 10. Students in Years 11 and 12 are provided subjects which draw directly from the Guide to Individual Learning (GIL) as well as the Australian Core Skills Framework.  The Senior School subjects purposefully provide the necessary functional skills to support students living and accessing their community as well as potentially working within supported or open work placements.

I invite you to explore the school's website and trust that you find it informative and useful.​​​​​​​​​​
