At Hale School, our long history and important traditions are respected and give our students a sense of their place in time and the world. Hale also firmly believes in moving with the times and embracing innovation.
Tracing back to colonial Perth in 1858, Hale is the oldest boys’ school in operation in Western Australia and has attracted some of the most high-profile and influential families and future leaders this state and country have seen.
Led by the first Anglican Bishop of Perth, Mathew Blagden Hale, the School began as the Collegiate School for boys, before changing its name to Hale School in 1929.
Bishop Hale was well known for empowering the South Australian Aboriginal people. His legacy was later honoured with Hale School being one of the first schools in the country to offer an Indigenous Scholarship programme and an Aboriginal cultural tour.
