History

Yanchep District High School was the school serving the Yanchep area, with students from Kindergarten to year 10. The closest school for year 11's and 12's was Butler College, 16-kilometre (9.9 mi) south. Due to the area being one of the fastest growing parts of Perth, there was a need for a larger high school.

Stage one of Yanchep Secondary College commenced construction in 2017. This stage is set to cater for 725 students, costing $43.5 million. Stage one has 33 general classrooms, specialist rooms for science, computing, woodwork, metalwork and home economics, a gymnasium and sports fields. [3] [4]

Yanchep Secondary College opened at the start of the 2018 school year for years 7 to 11, with year 12's beginning in 2019. Yanchep District High School was renamed to Yanchep Lagoon Primary School, and it stopped serving high school students. [5]

Stage two is currently under construction as of 2019, due to be completed in late 2020. It will cater for up to 1,500 students, and includes a performing arts centre, a commercial kitchen and cafe. [3] [6]
