Our academic results and achievements in both the International Baccalaureate and South Australian Certificate of Education make Pembroke one of the best schools in Australia and in the world.
Pembroke is a day and boarding school that offers a diverse student cohort, reflective of the multicultural nature of the city of Adelaide, which is regarded as a top 10 most livable city in the world.
We welcome applications from all countries and backgrounds.
All international students who are successful in their admission to Pembroke School are required to be boarding students if they do not live in Australia with at least one parent. Boarding is where students will build friendships, receive academic tutoring and support, and experience Australian culture and lifestyle in a safe, caring and supportive environment. Should a bed in Pembroke Boarding House not be available, international students will be required to reside in a school approved homestay until such time a bed in the Boarding House becomes available.
Representative Education Agents will assist International Students with the process of admission to Pembroke School. Pembroke School has agreements with a number of specific agents.
Pembroke Connect Program
The Pembroke Connect Program prepares recently arrived overseas students for study at Pembroke School. The course advances students’ English language proficiency in reading, writing, listening and speaking. It also teaches a range of academic skills required to access the mainstream secondary curriculum at Pembroke School. These skills include the construction of a range of oral and written texts for academic purposes, research strategies and independent study skills. Students are also introduced to Australian culture and educational approaches.
We are committed to providing all students with the best start possible. We offer a tailored transition and orientation program for all of our students.
