Principals Message

Welcome to CathWest Innovation College where education meets the needs of our students now, and into the future.

Launched in 2020, our college was formed by the coming together of the Catholic Trade Training Centres and Loyola Senior High. We are proud to offer exciting new options for students in Years 10, 11 and 12.We offer a flexible pathway to education and training that is centred on the individual needs and interests of students. Combining study and training, our students are in a position to attain their HSC and get a head-start on their chosen career - all without the pressure of formal HSC exams.

With campuses in two convenient Western Sydney locations we seek to provide young people with a wider range of educational options, in order to ensure more choices for a bright future. At CathWest we are putting students in the driver’s seat when it comes to their learning journey. Our students achieve because we teach them to believe in themselves the way we believe in them.

We aim to inform and transform young adults to better prepare them for the jobs of tomorrow. Our carefully designed courses enable students to develop essential skills in time management, planning, and prioritising. In addition, students develop practical, industry-specific skills that make them highly employable on graduation. We are proud to play a part in shaping future citizens of the world who are highly skilled, competent, and responsible.

As a Catholic learning community we are focused on developing a deep understanding of the Catholic faith that is translated into the service of others. Together our community of learners act with integrity and strive for the ‘greater good’. We help our students seek and find God in all things. Our faith-based environment allows us to deliver a holistic education that encourages our students to be generous and compassionate, and to reflect on their actions and learn from them. Students of CathWest are empowered to participate actively and fully in the life of their communities, the Church and the wider world. Visit us today to find out more about how we can help you start your tomorrow now.
