Our high-school programme provides a high-quality, direct entry into Education Queensland International (EQI) schools, in addition to dozens of award-winning catholic & independent Queensland secondary schools.

The Programme in Detail

The intensive Charlton Brown High School Preparation classes consist of 25 hours of face-to-face instruction per week. 

Attention is given to developing all Macro-Skills (Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking) as students participate in theme-based study. Students will learn about Australian culture and school culture. Teachers will also equip students with the language skills they need to participate and succeed in the mainstream classroom, and students will also receive instruction in Math, Science, computer technology – in addition to skills for developing learner autonomy.  

Particular focus is given to developing learner autonomy as Charlton Brown recognises the importance of student achievement outside of the HSP Program.

Students will have opportunity to write academic papers, give spoken presentations, participate in class activities and access our online learning resources. The continuous assessment of students’ learning will provide students with the feedback they need to be on track to enter the mainstream classroom at their expected date of entry.

Charlton Brown is committed to quality assurance.

Words cannot express accurately enough how grateful I am for having Fanny as my trainer during most of my Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care. The level of her service delivery was above and beyond my expectations, as well as her ethics and the knowledge and skill set she kindly shared with her students, always with a positive attitude, broad smile and gentleness that are her trademark.

Teachers and general staff are always willing to attend our needs, tutoring, questions or even basic documents from reception. The campus is organised and clean. Library, learning materials and even the kitchen are always available for student’s use. I feel comfortable studying here and supported by my teachers.
