St Aidan’s offers a supportive, balanced and flexible all girls' mainstream curriculum. We endeavour to enable all International students to reach the best of their academic potential and strive to immerse all international students into the Australian way of life as well as becoming a valued member of the school’s community through a holistic approach to education. 

All Full Fee Paying Overseas Students whose English is their second language are required to complete an approved high school preparation English course before enrolling at St Aidan’s. 

Once enrolled all International students are supported throughout their studies at St Aidan’s to assist with obtaining strong academic success and achieving personal goals.

International students in grades 7-10 have compulsory academic English language support within their timetable to assist with skill development in literacy including reading, writing and listening creating a platform for basic understanding and comprehension as students become familiar with the unique learning structure to enter grades 11 and 12.

The development of our International students is reflected in our nurturing culture and pastoral support offered to students whilst attending the school. Pastoral support is provided by a full-time International Students Coordinator, Guidance Counsellor, Dean of Students and Heads of Year as well as form class teachers. 

Upon enrolment, International students undergo an extensive orientation process. International students are encouraged to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities including musical ensembles, sporting teams, community groups and school committees.
