Schools and Education in Perth

In Perth, children normally begin Year 1 in the year of their 6th birthday. On completing Year 7 they move from Primary School to High School which runs from Year 8 to Year 12. There are a variety of state or independent schools to choose from.

University entrance is based on final grades in Year 12 but entry can also be gained with a combination of experience and aptitude tests. Many of the Universities have several campuses dotted around Western Australia.

Perth is also home to many TAFE campuses with each specialising in their own subjects. TAFE is a post-secondary organisation which provides a range of technical and vocational training courses.
