Welcome to Winthrop Primary School

Learn and Grow Together” is our school motto. Staff embed it and inspire student growth in the academic, physical, artistic and social domains. Our school has a strong focus on providing students with the knowledge, skills and values to create citizens for the future.


Thank you for your interest in an enrolment at Winthrop Primary School.

We are a school that always welcomes new students, however due to the high demand for places at the school the Department of Education has designated Winthrop as a local intake area school and priority of enrolment is given to children who reside within the boundaries of this school. Cross boundary admission will only occur if there are places available.


All children of compulsory school age must be enrolled in school and attend every day – this is the law. In Western Australia, children can start their education in Kindergarten, however compulsory schooling starts the following year in Pre Primary.


Forms for Kindergarten and Pre Primary to Year 6 are included on this page. The Information Booklet is also included. Click on the link at the bottom of the page. Our school boundaries (boundary map) are:-


· Leach Highway (odd numbers)

· North Lake Road

· Somerville Boulevard

· Prescott Drive

· South Street

· Murdoch Drive

When enrolling your child, you will be asked to provide:

· your child’s birth certificate (original or certified copy).

· your child’s immunisation records from the Australian Immunisation Register (1800 653 809), dated within two months of the application submission.

· proof of your child’s usual place of residence eg. a lease agreement of at least six months or proof of ownership of a property such as gas, water, or electrical account. A Statutory Declaration will be required if living with a relative.

· copies of Family Court or other court orders (if applicable).

· visa details (if applicable).
