Transport 

Christ Church Grammar School is well serviced by buses and the nearby Claremont train station. To meet the needs of students not on these routes, the School provides bus services to and from certain areas. For bus service details, please visit our Travel page. Walking and biking is also strongly encouraged – for information on cycle paths go to cycle map Fremantle to Perth.

Drop-off and pick-up zone: As there is extremely limited campus parking, all parents and carers apart from those with Pre-Primary boys, must use the drop-off and pick-up zone – see Claremont campus map.  

My Student Account (MSA)

Parents of all new students will need to establish a cash free card account:

  • In the Senior School this is necessary for purchases at the Canteen and Bookroom and is also integrated with the library and Transperth SmartRider cards
  • For Preparatory School boys, parents will need to establish an MSA account if they wish to purchase lunch orders from the Canteen
  • The information on how to do this can be found here.
