A new, local merit select Year 8-10 Middle School, Comet Bay College has commenced operation in 2006 with 250 Year 8 students. A decision about its future expansion to Year 11 and 12 will be made toward the end of 2007. The college is situated in Secret Harbour, a coastal community about 64 kilometres from Perth. Named after the bay between Rockingham and Mandurah, Comet Bay College draws students from the surrounding suburbs of Baldivis, Port Kennedy, Secret Harbour, Golden Bay, Singleton and Madora Bay. Due to the rapid expansion of residential development around the college, only enrolments from within its catchment area, or through the ATP program, can be accepted until further notice.

Reflecting the values of its predominantly aspirational school community, Comet Bay's motto is 'Seek Excellence' and its priorities are Academic Excellence, Visual and Performing Arts, Civic and Environmental Responsibility. The college has been included in the Academic Talent Program (ATP) for 2007 and, through its strong partnership with its contributory primary schools has received Commonwealth Success for Boys program funding for 2006. Comet Bay is also a trial school for the Fast Forward Reading program being run through Curtin University. A strong pastoral care focus underlies everything we do at Comet Bay and our aim is to develop resilient young people with a healthy sense of self-worth and the confidence to seek excellence in all aspects of their lives.
