Shenton College is a purpose-built secondary school which opened in 2001 on a 13-hectare site of historical and natural significance in Shenton Park in Perth's western suburbs. The campus is divided into two parts, the Middle School and the Senior School, with the two distinct areas joined by communal areas such as the cafeteria, library and lecture theatres. There are currently 1200 students enrolled.

In its short existence the college has earned a reputation of high academic and sporting achievements, with students competing from all over the state for places in the special academic program.

The Middle School caters for Years 8 and 9 where the College aims to address the emotional, social and intellectual needs specific to young teenagers. The environment promotes in students a feeling of self worth and confidence while also giving them a quality educational experience.

In the Senior School, Year 10 is regarded as transition to the special demands of Years 11 and 12, with a clear focus on maximising future destinations.

Years 11 and 12 students choose from a variety of subjects and courses leading to Secondary Graduation and preparation for Technical and Further Education (TAFE) or University entrance. All Senior School students are assigned a mentor - a staff member who guides and monitors their academic, social and pastoral needs.
