Education Support Centre

Established in 1998, the Esperance SHS Education Support Centre is a secondary school for young people with a disability. The school offers a responsive curriculum tailored to meet individual needs to students in Years 7 to 12.

The school believes in the ability of each and every child to develop into a young adult empowered to make choices, and encourages students to participate in and contribute to their community. To this end, we work in partnership with families and the community to equip our students with the necessary skills to live productive and fulfilling lives through an individually focused and supportive curriculum.

While delivering a purposeful curriculum matched to individual needs in traditional subject areas and through accredited and nationally recognised courses, we also have a strong educational focus on developing skills to enhance social competency, independent living, employment, volunteering, technology, resiliency, protective behaviours, self-advocacy, community access and recreation.

The Esperance SHS Education Support Centre values inclusion and actively supports student participation in the educational and social opportunities offered by the partner school, Esperance Senior High School, the Esperance Community Education Campus partners and the wider community.
