Welcome to Aspect Western Sydney School. Established in 1984, we offer a safe, supportive learning environment for students on the autism spectrum. Our school caters for close to 160 students across the Greater Western regions of Sydney. Our school has a main school site at Wetherill Park which consists of six primary classes and the administration base, as well as eight primary satellite classes and five high school classes which are Aspect run but operated within NSW Department of Education and Catholic Schools.
Our school proudly adopts a comprehensive approach to education for students on the autism spectrum known as the Aspect Comprehensive Approach. This approach is person-centred therefore the focus is on meeting individual need. Our education programs engage, celebrate and utilise the strengths, interests and aspirations of our students. Our staff are committed to continual improvement and we work closely with the community as partners. We also work in close partnership with parents as we value the importance of a team approach to supporting students.

Get a great education, tailored to you.
Aspect is a registered and accredited school with highly trained, passionate teachers. Following the NSW curriculum, we carefully adapt learning based on individual strengths and interests, ensuring a positive, personalized experience for every student. We leverage a student’s special interest areas to motivate them to achieve their personal best.
A community where you'll feel right at home.
We are more than just a school - we're a close-knit, caring community of families and carers sharing similar experiences. Joining us provides an instant support network to share your journey with Aspect and beyond. Together, we share experiences, offer advice, and celebrate milestones and achievements.
Aspect views transition as an integral part of every student’s educational journey. Our school acts as a transitional setting, building on students’ skills and independence to enable a shift to less specialised settings with comprehensive and personalised support. Approximately twenty percent of our students successfully transition each year.
