    I would be really grateful for any advice that you can offer regarding schools.

     

    My husband has been offered a job in Edwardstown and the company will be applying for visas for the family based on my husband's skills.

     

    We have three children who are currently in Year 10, Year 7 and Year 5 in the UK. Our daughter in Year 10 is currently taking her first module GCSE exams.

     

    I have been looking at websites for schools in Adelaide and they mention fees. I have tried to contact some schools but I believe that they are closed for the Summer holiday at the moment.

     

    Do all schools charge fees?

    Thanks :wubclub:

    As above, we have just received a bill for $320 for our 16yr old doing yr12 sace, + he has had to buy books etc. we are waiting for the bill for the youngest in y7 will probally be more as they go on a camp. we priced up private when we arrived and it was nearly $5000 for the eldest and $3000 for the youngest + uniforms etc which are very expensive. yes the schools are on summer holls but will probally be back next week getting ready for the new term. we found some schools better than others in replying.

     

    Good luck Lisa

    Last year I paid $230 for each primary school child in a State School and $4500 for My 13 year old (year 8) in a Private High School.

    Thank you for your responses. My head is full of questions and very few answers!

     

    Our daughter currently attends an all girls' Catholic grammar school here. Could anyone give me their opinion on the state schools available? Does the amount of fee charged reflect the standard of education given? Is the SACE equivilent to an A Level here and the IB a GCSE?

     

    Thank you all for your patience!

    my daughter will be starting the SACE she is sitting all her final GCSE's in the UK, what school she ends up in, in Adelaide will assess her GCSE's and possibly credit them towards the SACE i found out last week.

    That's interesting to know , my daughter is in year 10 currently sitting science and maths exams which she will complete in June, and although she is working really hard at them we were under the impression that they would count for nothing in SA. My son by comparison is finishing his A levels as they will allow him entry to uni ( if he passes them !!).

    If you have any more info on this do you mind sharing ?! We are off in July.

    Hi jennet,

     

    What school is that with? My eldest son is finishing his GCSEs and we are hoping to go in July as well but that depends on whether we have sold the house. To be honest though he isn't the academic sought but does try hard so i think he may be put back a year which is probably best for him.

     

    Cheers

    what my agent told me sounds like any school will assess the students academic ability and put them in the correct year for their progression.
