In the Secondary school Maths, Science and English are streamed so that students are placed in the appropriate class, with the extension class covering course material well above their peers. Extension in English includes a ‘Book in a Day’ event at which students plan, devise, write, illustrate and bind an entire narrative over a twelve hour period. In 2015 our Year 11 team won the National award for Best Book and in 2016 the same group of students won the award for Best Illustrations and came third overall in the State.
In July 2014, New Zealand company, Education Perfect, launched its inaugural International Maths Championship. Our gifted Maths students produced some great results enabling Kingsway to take out the top prize of being the highest scoring school in WA, competing against 221 WA schools.

In 2016, eleven of our Year 12 students got ATAR scores of 98 and over and eight students were offered assured pathways into Medicine.
