Armadale is located in Perth




Armadale, being an urban centre and transport hub for the surrounding districts, contains a variety of educational institutions. It is home to two state high schools, four state primary schools, three independent schools (one of which extends to year 12), an Australian Trades College campus and a campus of Polytechnic West (formerly Swan TAFE).

In 1899, Armadale School was established at the intersection of Church and Third Roads. With the construction of social housing in the 1950s, Armadale Senior High School (1955) and John Calvin Christian College (1957) were opened. As new areas opened, new schools followed: Kingsley (1969), Neerigen Brook (1970) and Challis (1974), as well as Cecil Andrews Senior High School (1980). In 1983, the Pioneer Village School and Dale Christian School opened. Finally, in 1987, Armadale Primary School was relocated to its current location at Carradine Road following the redevelopment of the Armadale city centre precinct — its old location is now home to Armadale Shopping City..

The Australian Air Force Cadets Number 719 Squadron is also located in Armadale, at Cecil Andrews Senior High School.

In approximately 2000, a TAFE Centre was built in Commerce Avenue as part of the South-East Metropolitan College of TAFE; it became a fully functioning campus in 2003 when SEMC merged into Swan TAFE, and is now a campus of Polytechnic West. In 2010, the Federal Government opened a campus of the Australian Trades Collegespecialising in carpentry and joinery, cabinet making and electrical trades.
