College Overview

Coodanup College is a caring learning environment where we support our students to strive for excellent standards of achievement and behaviour. Located in south-eastern Mandurah, our college caters for students in Years 7-12. Through our motto ‘Explore, Dream, Discover’, our College is known for encouraging our students to explore through their learning, dream about what they want to achieve at school and beyond, and discover ways to be the best they can be.

We focus strongly on high standards across the school community, where staff work together to assist students to achieve to their potential. We know that senior schooling is vitally important, and our continued focus on ATAR performance, Vocational Education and Training and General Pathways will give your child the knowledge and skills they need to have a wide choice of options in a when they leave school in line with their interests and goals. Your child will also have access to a broad range of programs in purpose-built facilities, such science, agriculture, automotive technology, media and the arts. Programs like these, combined with excellent teaching and support staff, ensure that your child is receives a personalised, high quality education.

Our college values ‘We will learn, we will be safe, we will be fair, we will be proud’ guide everything we do and the way that we treat each other. We expect that each student, with support, will learn to the best of their ability and be positive, caring and respectful to others. We have three academies onsite: the Clontarf Academy and the Girls Academy, which aim to improve the education, skills, abilities and opportunities for our young Indigenous students, and the Inspire Academy, which focuses on supporting our lower school students to strive for high academic performance which leads to tertiary study. Our excellence in our care and commitment to our students means your child will thrive.

Your child will enjoy our state of the art facilities to support their learning, including a recently opened Trade Training Centre, the ‘Treasure Box’ Performing Arts Theatre, dedicated science laboratories, agricultural and automotive centres, purpose built media and information technology hubs, a hairdressing salon, and a well-equipped gymnasium.
