Welcome to Black Mountain

Black Mountain School (BMS) is a centre of excellence in the field of special education. We are a specialist secondary school (years 7 - 12) for students with an intellectual disability. We provide a functional curriculum to support students to reach their maximum potential and independence.

We deliver a quality, individualised education providing social, life and work skills that facilitate students' participation in a full and satisfying post-school life.

We have close to 110 students each year with an intellectual disability, many with additional diagnoses such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), physical disability, communication difficulties and/or complex medical conditions.

We offer many exciting and innovative programs to support every student to reach their optimum post-school life potential. These programs include the launch of Compass, building strong secondary education through specialised services.

We are also the only Specialist School to be showcased in the National Solar Schools project which included 100 schools nationally. Click to view the video.    


PaperChange is a social enterprise which combines social and environmental accountability. This program equips students with a range of work skills to further their post-school options. These include work skills for life, that would be required in any work place, and work skills specific to the industrial arts.

Check out our gallery items for sale. All proceeds go directly back into the program to strengthen opportunities for our students.
