As your child starts attending our classes, you’ll understand right away why Rockingham Beach Education Support Centre is so popular. We provide a safe, positive and vibrant learning environment that inspires students with disabilities to grow into creative, caring and responsible individuals.
Rockingham Beach ESC is a special needs school providing a supported and balanced academic program personalised for your child. As they progress from Early Years to Year 6, we’ll challenge and nurture them and encourage independent thought and imagination to develop their learning skills and confidence.
You see, we genuinely believe that all children with special needs can learn and grow into productive members of their communities if encouraged to broaden their academic, social and life skills. That’s why we designed a stimulating school environment with specialist facilities and activities that support the development of the whole child intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally.
We also believe that students with special needs learn best under the care, guidance and support of educators who have many years of experience working with students with low, high and complex needs. For that reason, we’ve built one of the highest-trained and highest-qualified teams of special educators in the country.
We’ve also earned the reputation and respect as the School of the Year for the unique work we’re doing. Our success with our students and their families reflect our dedication to providing an exceptional, well-rounded individualised special education program for each student that focuses on their specific education and learning needs.
At Rockingham Beach Education Support Centre, your child will be in good hands.

Facts and figures
At Rockingham Beach Education Support Centre, we believe that the smaller the classroom size, the better we can help your child. They’ll receive more one-on-one time with their educators, meaning we can focus on their specific learning style and challenges, and work on their basic building blocks for life-long learning, which in turn will lift their academic and social performance.
