Excellence in School Leadership – WA Education Award 2022 Winners

Last week we were announced as the winners of the Excellence in School Leadership Award in the WA Education Awards. This award celebrates schools and teams taking an inclusive approach to leadership where shared responsibility and a focus on collective impact rather than individual achievement is encouraged. The award was developed to recognise schools that create and sustain the conditions for all students to achieve and progress, and to acknowledge that collective leadership can happen at all levels. It is a testament to the strength and depth of the leadership culture at our school – from our educators, our students, our gardeners, cleaners, admin staff and canteen workers – far beyond the boardroom or those in formal leadership roles.

Successful Shenton College students are not only academically able – they’re strong team members, they care for others, and they want to give back to the world.  Far from an institution of routine testing and grades, we’ve created an environment where students obtain real-world knowledge and understanding, and develop the emotional and social intelligence needed not only to become active life participants but also to be remarkable leaders.

Recruitment Information Sessions

We are running Information Sessions early in Term 3 to give some more context for prospective candidates for positions at the College. Whilst we do have specific roles already advertised during this term, we imagine that the information in these sessions will be relevant for a broad range of applicants and that there will be further advertised roles going live in the coming months.

Leadership Information Session

Teaching Information Session



For entry into our High Performance Learning (HPL) program, students must reside within our catchment.

Students are selected for HPL through a local entry process which includes:

  • sitting a common selection test at the College (or if interstate or overseas, by arrangement).  We are conducting a catch-up session for those who missed the main test session – this session will be at 2pm on Friday July 29, in the College iCentre.   Students will be at Shenton on the test day for a scheduled 90 minutes.  A sitting fee of $20 is required.  Register for the Test.
  • Provision of the latest school report.
  • Provision of the latest NAPLAN results.
  • Where available (not required) external testing data such as DET GATE testing results.

Further advice on the submission of the selection portfolio will be forwarded to students sitting the HPL test.
