Our Campus & Facilities
The International School of Western Australia is located within the western suburb of Doubleview in Perth, Western Australia.
Close to the ocean and city-centre, our modern campus is nestled amongst Perth’s premium suburbs. It offers great transport networks and is surrounded by cafes, shopping centres, sports amenities, child-care and community clubs.
The school offers everything necessary to support a world-class education for students. In addition to large classrooms, the school includes science labs, drama studios, art studios, e-learning centres, library, gymnasium, tennis courts and basketball courts, large playing fields and nature based playgrounds.
State-of-the-art education facilities
Our campus combines new with old – retaining and refurbishing heritage buildings of a former school site as well as constructing a new two-storey teaching block, Arts Precinct and Gymnasium. The areas are known as:
- Kalinda (Administration, Science Labs, ICT workroom, E-Learning Centre, Secondary School classrooms);
- Heritage (HR and Primary School classrooms);
- Village (Primary School classrooms);
- Early Years (Kindergarten and Pre-Primary classrooms);
- Arts Precinct (Music, Drama, Visual Art Studios, STEM maker-space and Library); and
- Sports Centre (Gymnasium, Fitness Room, Outdoor Hardcourts, Ovals).
Shaded, green spaces complement the new buildings which are landscaped with natural flora and include five purpose-built and nature inspired playgrounds.
In June 2020, ISWA relocated to a purpose-built new campus at 193 St Brigids Terrace, Doubleview. The campus has been built and is owned by the Department of Education, with ISWA entering into a long term lease agreement. The negotiated change of location has enabled ISWA to provide teaching and learning in modern, purpose-built facilities which have been designed for today’s educational needs.
Prior to the modern campus, ISWA leased the former City Beach High School site from the Department of Education for 13 years, between 2007 – 2020.
Two schools on one site
ISWA neighbours with Doubleview Primary School, however, both schools are separated by fencing and operate independently. ISWA and Doubleview Primary School share sporting facilities such as the oval and gymnasium, which are timetabled for one-school access per session. Our exciting new location will offer opportunities for collaboration.
ISWA 80 on-site bays and 30 designated street bays available. With the ISWA school day starting and ending at different times to Doubleview Primary School, traffic congestion is minimal. ISWA will continue to monitor and make changes where necessary.
