High School Preparation

How do students benefit from our programme?

We are helping children to have a successful transition into High School life. Our High School Preparation (HSP) course is a specialised programme focusing on language development and essential study skills needed for entry into an Australian government or private high school. Students receive subject-specific content that will enable them to not only comprehend but succeed in key learning areas.

Our High School Preparation is designed to:

  • facilitate English conversation proficiency to the appropriate level for a high school student in Australia
  • develop English vocabulary specifically relevant to high school subjects
  • equip students with the study skills to achieve academic success when they continue on to high school.

Students grow in confidence in expressing themselves and develop their strengths.

Cooperating with Government School Partners

We partner with Education Queensland Government International (EQI). The Queensland schools we are cooperating with cater for the individual abilities and interests of the students and provide them with a wide range of high quality study pathways.
