Student support

Support from day one 

Studying in Australia may be the first time you have lived away from home. At Taylors High School you will quickly feel part of a community. Our teachers and support staff will do all they can to help you to integrate and adapt to the Australian life and successfully complete your studies. Your time with us starts with an orientation program, to help you find your way around the college and make new friends.

Academic guidance

To help you reach your goals, our programs offer free, personalised tutorials. Tutorials are available to students in all subjects. This is your time to ask questions and focus on difficult study areas.

To ensure you are happy in your studies and progressing well, your timetable will include daily one-to-one tutorials across each of your subjects. This provides you with the individual attention, support and encouragement you need to gain your HSC.

Our teaching style helps students make a smooth transition from school to university. You will be encouraged to ask questions, participate in class and develop the key study skills needed for success at university. This includes carrying out research, giving presentations and learning independent study techniques.

In Year 12 you will continue to benefit from our university-style teaching, to make sure you are prepared for your university studies. You will undertake independent learning assignments, including research and project work.

Preparation for your future

If you want a guaranteed university offer, you have come to the right place. We have strong relationships with Australia’s best universities, which means we understand what they want from international students. We will be ready to advise you on university choices and coach you through the application process. We also provide a wide range of careers activities, so you can explore your options after you graduate and gain relevant skills for the workplace.

Personal development

Taking part in activities outside the classroom will help you develop life skills such as teamwork, leadership and communication. It’s also a great way to meet students from other programs and make new friends. A popular choice is Taylors Action Group (TAG), which organises regular student activities. Events include a Chinese New Year party, Ramadan Celebration Dinner, Soccer Gala Day Barbeque and Jeans for Genes Day.

Your well-being

Your welfare is our highest priority. We have dedicated teams of support, welfare and teaching staff, who create a caring and friendly learning environment. If you need someone to talk to, or have any personal or academic concerns, our Student Support Services team is here to help.

Caregivers

If you are under 18 you must have a guardian who is responsible for your welfare. Taylors High School has links with a number of organisations, who can provide you with an approved caregiver. They will provide a link between your parents and the school, and a variety of services including support on your arrival in Australia, fortnightly visits, monitoring of your academic progress and attendance, and even 24-hour service in case of emergency.

Do you need a caregiver?

If you want to take advantage of this service, please contact one of the following organisations:
