Boarding at Pembroke

All international students who are successful in their admission to Pembroke School are required to be boarding students or live with at least one parent. We strongly advise boarding as this is where students will build friendships, receive academic tutoring and support, experience Australian culture and lifestyle in a safe, caring and supportive environment.

Pembroke Connect Programme

The Pembroke Connect Programme 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.
