Our History


As an Independent Public School, Belmont City College is able to target the use of our resources in a manner that will best meet the needs of our students.

Belmont City College (previously known as Belmont Senior High School until 2000, when it was significantly refurbished) is a state government senior high school located in Belmont, 6 kilometres east of Perth, Western Australia.

The school first opened in 1957. Its catchment area grew substantially after the state government’s closure of Kewdale Senior High School in 1998.

In recent years the school has implemented a number of reforms focusing on improving the school culture and the efficiency of school leadership. In 2010 the College became one of the first 34 schools in WA to become an Independent Public School.
