The College strives to bring about the best in each student. The classes are arranged into year groups and graded whenever possible.
Classes run at a maximum of six students for years 7 – 8 and five students for years 9 – 11 (Year 12 moves between small groups to individual and pairs depending on what is needed at the time. If the class runs as a lecture it will be a bigger group but will run for a longer duration.
If you are sick or unable to attend a lesson, you will need to contact us before the missed class in order to qualify for a make-up lesson. If you fail to turn up to a lesson without notice then no make-up lesson will be arranged and you will forfeit that week’s class. Only two make-ups are given per term and need to be completed within the term missed. No make-ups are given for missed lectures or creative. For more information please go to Make-up Policy.
Fees cannot be carried forward to the next term or reimbursed.
Your teacher may request that a certain text be read or homework set. You will need to complete what is set for you as the lessons following will be structured with the assumption that each student has read/completed the set tasks.
It should be noted that although The College tries to maintain the same time slot for you throughout the year, there may be times when we recommend that you move to a different class. This is to ensure you are tutored to the level most suited to you and will help ensure you perform at your optimum.
If you are accepted a deposit of $100.00 is required to secure your spot in the class. This will be taken off the term fees. The remainder of the term fees are payable on the first lesson of each term. If you commence your class mid way through the term, the fees will be adjusted accordingly.
Each term we will ask for $100 deposit which holds your spot for the following term. This has to be paid BEFORE THE END OF EACH TERM and is deducted from the fees when you return the next term.
Once you begin the term, your term fees are not refundable.
Your deposit is not refundable after the last day of the previous term.

Year 7 – 8: 10 weeks x 1 hour 40 mins

We usually run on a 10 week term. Term 4 is a Prep term for the following year.
2018/19 Term Fees for a 10 week term are:
