Understanding the school system in Australia

There are a number of schooling options in Australia, including:

  • Private 
  • Semi-Private
  • Coed
  • State Schooling
  • All girls education
  • All boys education
  • Parallel education

Our school support service will help you navigate the different options and shortlist schools appropriate for your child.

Our School Search service includes:

  • Skype/Zoom call to discuss your children’s needs
  • Information on school rankings, Naplan results and curriculums
  • Shortlisting of schools
  • We will contact schools to check on spaces available per year level
  • Arrange school tours for your arrival or during an orientation visit
  • Support and guidance to complete enrolment forms
  • School preparations including immunization updates and uniform purchase
  • Further advice for parents on settling their children and following up
  • English language lessons arranged if required

We understand how important decisions need to be made quickly.  We work with you to understand your family values and your child’s interest. Sometimes it’s not about the biggest school or the best rankings, it is about your child. We get that.


Yes, we can share information and reports on all streams, Private, Semi-Private or State schools

It depends on which stream of school you are choosing.  If you are choosing State schools, then yes, we need to find the home first, so you can show the school you are living within their zone.

You will need your visa, especially if you are eligible for free schooling, so they can check your visa type.  Immunization records, previous school reports – in English.  There are application forms to complete, which will require parents work, Doctor and other information.

Yes, most schools do wear uniform.

No, this is generally not acceptable in Australia as it can be in other countries where corporate sponsors gain an advantage.

Budget is the first consideration, we will then discuss what the family is looking for in a school – this could be values, subject choices, extracurricular activities.  We take a holistic view of your relocation and consider commutes and transport options for the family.

Our advice would be to start with assessing what you currently enjoy in the current school.  Then book consultation to discuss your options with us.

This depends on the type of school.  If it is Private or Semi Private, you should start at least a year out, so you have time to evaluate which schools have spaces based on your needs.  If you are opting for State schooling in Australia, then you need home in the catchment zone first. Once you have a home, you can enrol the children within a few days.
