We offer English language courses in preparation for entry into both Primary and Secondary School (high school) mainstream courses at St John’s Anglican College.

Mainstream Courses

International direct entry students are welcomed at St John’s.

You can read more information here regarding mainstream courses.

To be considered for placement at St John’s please submit your application along with two academic reports, your passport details and details of your current visa.

When we receive your application our office will contact you to arrange a time for you to meet with our Principal. Subject to a satisfactory interview, an offer for placement will follow.

English level requirements for mainstream entry are:

  • All students must complete Level Five for entry into Year Nine and above.
  • Students need to pass Level Four for entry into Years Six, Seven and Eight.

Primary school preparation

St John’s Anglican College welcomes primary-aged international students and integrates them into mainstream classes. For enrolment, please apply to the Head of the International College who will liaise with the College Registrar.

High school preparation

Courses are designed for students who have studied English as a Second Language (ESL) in their home country, but wish to enter mainstream secondary school classes at St John’s Anglican College. Students will need to have complete a minimum of one year’s study of English (or equivalent) in their home country prior to acceptance.

Class sizes are small, with an average of 15 students per class to provide the best possible learning environment.

Our experienced teachers are highly qualified. They hold TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) and secondary school teaching qualifications. They are specially trained in preparing international students for high academic performance.

A blend of ESL and mainstream teaching methods and techniques provides students with a self-paced learning environment. Students also learn a range of study skills and are taught to be responsible for their own learning and progress.
