Principal’s welcome

Welcome to Bunbury Catholic College and thank you for visiting our website. Our College has a rich history associated with the Mercy Sisters and Marist Brothers who came to Bunbury to educate students in the South West, dating back to 1894 (Sisters of Mercy) and 1954 (Marist Brothers).

In 2020 we offer our 850 students, from Year 7 to Year 12, the opportunity to access a quality Catholic education in a coeducational environment, with a focus on meeting the needs of every student. Our parents’ aspirations for their children to achieve their full potential, in an environment that is welcoming and safe, is shared by the 130 dedicated teaching and support staff at the College.

Quality teaching and learning, partnered with strong teacher and student relationships, embedded in an environment that is underpinned by Gospel values, is at the heart of everything we do at Bunbury Catholic College.

In the classroom our teachers and support staff strive to make the most of each lesson, to inspire and enable our students to achieve their personal best. Our College has a wide range of co-curricular programs which enable our students to further develop their gifts and talents, over the time they spend at the College. 

Bunbury Catholic College’s growth in recent years has seen our College initially expand to two campuses, and then excitingly, in 2020, we have Bunbury Catholic College and Our Lady of Mercy College Australind, as two independent Catholic Secondary Colleges in the Bunbury region.

Our College welcomes all students, both non-Catholic and Catholic, we simply ask that all families and students support the overall Catholic ethos of our College. All prospective families are encouraged to contact the College by telephone or email to find out more about the outstanding opportunities available to all students at Bunbury Catholic College. 

We welcome all new families, as they become part of our wonderful College community, and thank existing families for their ongoing support.

Michael Pepper,
