Senior External - Enrolment Procedure
Step 1: Consultation
To adequately help students select the best option, a personal consultation involving the prospective student and a supporting person, e.g. a parent/guardian, should be arranged as soon as possible with the Principal. An expression of interest is a good way to organise a consultation with the Principal.
There is no charge for the consultation and no compulsion to enroll. Consultations are conducted throughout the year. A consultation will give you an opportunity to see the School, perhaps meet some of the staff, have relevant QTAC schedules explained as well as have your questions answered.
To ensure your queries are answered satisfactorily during the consultation, the following documentation is required:
- most recent academic record;
- supporting documentation from Allied Health professionals (in the case of an ongoing medical condition);
- proof of age with photo ID (i.e. School ID, Licence, Passport); and
- any court orders.
In circumstances where your personal consultation is not practical because of distance, an interview by telephone can be arranged. Although not ideal, it has proven to be helpful in the past.
Step 2: Submit Enrolment Agreement
For full acceptance into the School the following have to be completed and submitted:
- The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) Eligibility Form. This form is available online from QCAA. This form is to be completed if the prospective student is 16 years of age or younger at the end of the examination year.
- The Hubbard’s School Enrolment Agreement (Available after consultation) which includes: A non-refundable $200 registration fee; $120 book bond per subject of study; most recent academic report; supporting documentation from Allied Health professionals; proof of age; and any court orders.
For more information about subjects or the Senior External School Program please refer to the Senior External Student Handbook
There are no religious, racial or academic restrictions placed on admission, however, the School reserves the right to withhold entry, if it seems likely that the student would not benefit from the education offered at Hubbard’s School.
Step 3: Orientation Program
All Senior External students enrolled as of the first week of January each year, are to attend an Orientation Program. This program incorporates information for students about:
- being a Hubbard’s School student;
- effective Study Skills, Time Management and Goal Setting; and
- team building exercises.
Parent Sessions regarding subject choices, school expectations, QTAC, QCAA and STAT information are organised in February each year. These sessions act as an introduction to the Hubbard's system for parents.
Further key dates can be found on the School Calendar.
Enrolments after Orientation
Students who enroll after the Orientation Day are offered an Orientation Pack. Additional lessons to facilitate the ‘catching-up’ of missed work are also arranged. This is individualised and takes into account the date of enrolment, the subjects involved and the student’s previous academic history.
As a consequence of this comprehensive ‘catch-up’ program, late applications for enrolment are always considered.
