A school was first established in Wycheproof in 1876. In 2026, the school will celebrate its sesquicentennial (150 years as a school). The school is extremely well resourced and has very attractive buildings and grounds with numerous species of eucalyptus trees dominating the skyline. There are separate music and woodwork rooms, excellent sporting facilities (including two school ovals, a Sporting Complex with squash courts and a fully equipped gymnasium). The Mount Wycheproof Community Museum is co-located on school grounds (in the older school buildings off Mount Street) and provides an opportunity for students to learn more about the historical background of Wycheproof, Nullawil and surrounding districts. Students have ample access to various computers and other ICT devices throughout the school. Our more senior students are able to undertake exams held in the Exam Centre and access specialist classroom facilities (Art, Science, Home Economics) that ensure they are immersed in conducive learning spaces. The impressive school library is located within the Foundation to Year 8 classrooms allowing easy access for children to engage in inspiring reading material. The new Early Learning Facility (located at the bottom-end of the school off Mount Street) ensures that there is an emphasis on quality learning experiences from early developmental stages.
Because the school has extensive grounds, students are encouraged to make the most of being situated in a rural landscape through local excursions to Mount Wycheproof and various other locations within the township. This provides students with the unique opportunity to explore and learn more about native flora and fauna including the seasonal ponds located on the mount. A kitchen garden also ensures children learn about edible plants and encourages children to be connected to the natural environment surrounding them.
