Notes/School Information:

Opened in 1959, The Illawarra Grammar School (TIGS) is an independent co-educational Anglican day school located on the eastern coast of New South Wales in the City of Wollongong, approximately 70km south of Sydney.

The Illawarra Grammar School welcomes applications from students living in other countries who wish to study in Australia.

The Illawarra Grammar School offers English language tuition to high school age international students.
The School's Centre for English provides a high quality English course to prepare students for the Senior School.
The Centre for English is located within the TIGS campus giving students full access to all TIGS facilities and support services.
Our High School Preparation (HSP) Course teaches the English and academic skills that students need to be successful in high school in Australia.
The course combines intensive English language study with English for specific Australian high school subjects. Time is allocated to focus on Australian study methods and techniques.
While studying at the Centre for English, students are integrated with TIGS students, participating in activities as part of the academic, cultural, sporting and social life of the School. Where appropriate, students are placed in Mathematics classes in the mainstream, this interaction increases confidence and helps students adapt to life in the School.
The course also includes study in the library, computer and internet skills, project work, self study and educational excursions.
