The school roll is about 410 students. Our senior classes are small and give good opportunities for small group and individual support. Most Year 11 classes are fewer than 20 students and many of our Year 12 and Year 13 classes have fewer than 10 students. ENGLISH LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS Students entering at Year 12 must provide evidence of English language proficiency. Direct enrollment into Year 13 is done on a case by case basis. To be considered a student would be expected to have at least 6.0 in IELTS or equivalent. For students hoping to go on to University it is recommended that they enroll in Year 12 and progress through to Year 13. ENGLISH LANGUAGE SUPPORT English language (ESOL) support is given throughout the year and there is an expectation that students will attend ESOL classes. Exemption may be given in exceptional cases. ACCOMMODATION All International Students must live in a school-approved homestay. Students are not permitted to live in flats/apartments regardless of their age; they must live with a family which does their cooking and washing of clothes. Students may not change their accommodation without the Dean of International Student's prior permission.
