Principal’s Message

Boys playingAs Principal I am very proud of Quintilian School, our excellent staff, and the achievements of the students both past and present.

I believe that Quintilian provides an outstanding educational experience for all of our students. We are privileged to be entrusted with the most important years of your child’s education and development. All children are made welcome at our school and we encourage them to question the world and develop their knowledge and understanding.

Academic excellence and rigour is pursued, but equally, social skills, physical health and the arts are of vital importance in preparing the children for secondary schooling and their place in society. Our aim is to maintain a teacher to student ratio of 1:20 and this allows our teachers to know, understand and cater for the needs of each child.

Parents and teachers work in close partnership to ensure that the children have their needs met, both individually and as part of a community. Quintilian School is a community where parents support and share the learning experience with their children.

Quintilian students move onto the local Independent and State high schools with the confidence and skills to make the transition smoothly. These schools regularly comment on the exceptional quality of Quintilian students. Each year a large number of our students receive scholarship places at both Independent schools and State schools. These include Academic or other Scholarship programmes at Shenton College, John Curtin, Perth Modern and other schools. In recent years past students have achieved recognition as Dux of their respective high schools or achieved a variety of other awards.

I extend an invitation for you to visit Quintilian to see with your own eyes why we have a reputation for providing outstanding education.
