Our School

Welcome to Burbridge School where you’ll find people who are welcoming, understanding and dedicated to our students and their families. Our commitment is to help every child develop the engagement, communication and independence required for successful learning and a productive, positive future.

Our team of specialist educators provide individualised, innovative and personalised learning programs for students with special needs from Kindergarten to Year 12 to prepare for a meaningful, productive and positive future.

As well as our dedicated staff, Burbridge School offers children a range of specialist facilities designed to meet the needs of students with special needs.

From a heated hydrotherapy pool and multi-sensory environment, to the student kitchen and Life Skills Centre, we are perfectly equipped to help your child achieve learning and growth.

Our focus is on individualised learning and support so that all students can learn at their own pace within the WA Curriculum. Our priority for every student is to develop the engagement, communication and independent skills for a productive and positive future. Our high care learning environment ensures we meet the individual needs of every student.

At Burbridge School, we strive to work as a team with families and their support agencies. Our principal, teachers and assistants understand the challenges faced by the families, and we work hard to extend our support to them.

The development of engagement and communication skills at school can have a profound affect on learning and home-life for our families.

We make it a priority to make ourselves available to give advice and support to all of the families that make up the close-knit and supportive Burbridge School community.

Our Classes

Our class sizes are small, to give the highest level of attention to our students and every class is led by specialist teachers. Our high staff to student ratio ensures our students enjoy a great degree of support and care.

A positive behaviour support and engagement philosophy is the foundation of our teaching and allows students to develop co-regulation skills and personal and social competence.

Specialist education support teachers use their knowledge and expertise to deliver individually tailored, relevant and meaningful curriculum that reflects the needs and develops the potential of each student.

Our qualified education assistants support learning in the classroom and the community to ensure students receive appropriate care. On-site nurses provide support and care for students with medical needs.

We encourage all students to develop independence and the communication, social and personal skills required to become confident learners.

We look to the future and work hard to develop the skills and life learning of our students to prepare them to make the most of life after their time at Burbridge.
