Since its foundation, Aranmore Catholic College has prided itself on being a welcoming school which promotes tolerance and acceptance regardless of cultural background or religious beliefs. The present College community consists of students and staff from over 60 different cultures, providing students with a global view of life.
Aranmore's history dates back to 1903 with the foundation of a school, originally named Arranmore, on the present site in Leederville by the Sisters of Mercy. In 1942 the secondary girls' school, St Mary's, was joined by a boys' school, CBC Leederville, established by the Christian Brothers. These two schools combined in 1986 to form Aranmore Catholic College.
Faithful to the beliefs of the College’s founders, Sister Catherine McAuley and Brother Edmund Rice, Aranmore seeks to offer education for all and to develop the whole student: intellectually, spiritually, physically and emotionally.
The College emphasises the care of each individual thereby encouraging the student to reach his or her full potential. Aranmore offers highly awarded specialist academic, sporting (Netball & Rugby) and music programs. Aranmore also provides scholarships for Indigenous students and specialist support for students from non-English speaking backgrounds.
Aranmore is a member of Australian Education International (AEI) and Perth Education City (PEC), and provides quality educational programs for overseas students and has an English as an Additional Language Dialect Department.
