The Middle School at Kearnan College caters for students from Years 7 to 9. We support the development of academic skills and social strategies of students in these year groups as they move through the exciting, yet challenging, transition of early adolescence. The aim of our Middle School is to provide all students with a quality education which enables them to develop their skills, knowledge and talents to the fullest extent.

The Kearnan Experience

Our Middle School setting provides Years 7, 8 and 9 students with a precinct that is theirs alone.  The transition to secondary schooling can be daunting for twelve year olds, so we have a Middle School building where all Year 7 classes and most Year 8 classes are timetabled.  This enhances our Middle School students’ feelings of belonging and reduces some of the initial fears faced by some students when they commence secondary education. 


A broad and comprehensive curriculum aims to meet the needs of all students. In Year 7, students undertake a range of subjects from all learning areas.  In Years 8 and 9, students also choose elective subjects to broaden their knowledge of other courses. Throughout Middle School, we offer an extensive and engaging curriculum within the following learning areas:


  • Religious Education

  • English

  • Health & Physical Education

  • Humanities & Social Science

  • Mathematics

  • Science

  • Technology & Enterprise

    • Design & Technology

    • Information Communication Technology

    • Home Economics

  • Languages Other than English

  • The Arts

    • Visual Arts

    • Theatre Arts

    • Dance

Extra Curricular

We have our own interhouse swimming and athletics carnivals along with representative teams travelling to Perth to take part in the interschool swimming and athletics events. Students also have the opportunity to compete in a range of School Sport WA competitions.
