For many homebuyers, the school catchment area is a major factor in choosing which suburb to live in. Perth is fortunate to have so many great schools and the catchment area means that local students are given priority to their nearby school. So, Move Homes has compiled a map showing the catchment areas of Perth’s public high schools.
While we’ve tried to be as accurate as possible, you can visit the Department of Education to confirm the borders.
