Welcome to West Byford Primary
West Byford is a Level 5 primary school that opened in February 2013 and became an Independent Public School in 2014.
The school is located at 101 Kardan Boulevard, Byford, approximately 41kms south of Perth and situated in the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale. The Byford area has rapidly developed from a rural area to urban housing, with seven government primary schools contributing students to Byford Secondary College. Although this area is suburban, it is also within a close proximity to rural areas, national parks and nature reserves.
The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale is currently the fastest growing local government in Western Australia and the population of the shire is expected to double by the year 2036. Much of this population increase is due to growth in the suburb of Byford. Community and commercial facilities are rapidly being developed to cater for the large population growth.
