John Curtin College of the Arts lies on the traditional country of the Wadjak people. The site of our school on this hill  in Fremantle (Walyalup) sits has always been a place of ceremonies, significant cultural practices and trading.  

Our exceptional and professional facilities enable students to experience diverse artistic and performance opportunities. The College’s newest developments will continue to expand facilities to keep pace with the needs of modern education.

When touring the school, we’re pleased to show how even our oldest building is now the site of our modern Design and Technology (D&T) department. From the manual arts workshops of old, now students from Visual Arts and D&T have access to advanced machines for realising their projects – from automatic routers, laser and plasma cutters to our newest industrial vinyl printer.

It’s not just equipment, but the living culture of the College that keeps our existing spaces evolving.

In our A-block, students could often overhear the lunchtime practice sessions of student bands- which lead to the A-block quad becoming a space for regular performances by student musicians. Our VET students and Theatre staff join hands with our music staff and music students, creating weekly shows that the whole school can look forward to.

When our new music complex is finished, the practice rooms will leave A-block, but the lunchtime performances will remain forever.

This is the story of JCCA, where the creations and aspirations of our students define our spaces just as much as any floor plan or photograph, where ideas are realised with equipment and expertise and where the lesson is just the beginning.

We are proud to continue the story on this hill in Walyalup.

Learn, grow and belong

Our students, our school, the world- everything grows. If we want to prepare our students for a world after graduation we cannot rest on our achievements- instead we must build on our successes, learn from them and refine them. So we’re expanding.

In addition to two entirely new complexes, our continued focus on promoting student wellbeing will see our existing student services facilities greatly expanded and joined by our learning support team (PROPEL).

The combined $23 million project will include state-of-the-art science and music learning areas, media arts, STEM, additional general classrooms and modern student services rooms.

The state-of-the-art music complex will bring their practice spaces up to the high standards set by our modern dance studios when it is completed at the end of 2024. The new precinct will include two double-height orchestra rooms, eight sound-proof practice rooms, instrument storage space and an outdoor courtyard stage area with ocean views. This new facility will enhance the learning experience for students with its exceptional acoustics and in it’s role as a purpose built venue for our musical cohort to showcase their skills alongside Curtin Theatre.

John Curtin is a living school, defined by the culture and experiences of it’s students. It shapes how we teach and how we grow.

Join us for one of our tours, in person or online, to see how John Curtin will grow for you.

Learning belongs in school, but you don’t need to learn to belong at John Curtin.
