St George's College has a rich and proud history. After Western Australia gained self-government in 1890, Sir Winthrop Hackett, Archbishop C.O.L. Riley and Sir John Forrest worked to establish a university in Perth, which would become the University of Western Australia. In his will, Hackett left funds to establish an associated college in the Oxbridge style. This marked the genesis of St George's College, which opened in 1931.
