Your bridge to success.
Hubbard’s School is a co-educational, Queensland Independent School situated at Level 1/ 15 Lang Parade, Milton.
The Hubbard's School educational program is recognised as an alternative, differentiated, rigorous academic pathway. This pathway and pedagogical approach is tailored to prepare and support academic students in preparation for future tertiary studies. This pathway also enables students who require a flexible education program to cater to their personal situation. Some of the reasons that students choose this pathway include: heavy training schedules in sports, dance, theatre and music, accelerated or differentiated learning styles, and unique medical circumstances.
We look forward to working with you. Welcome!
The student-centred approach to education at Hubbard's School is critical to the way it operates as a learning organisation. The smooth transition from the Hubbard's academic program into University, TAFE, or the workforce is made possible through a focus on establishing quality relationships with students.
Hubbard's School staff and teachers work in partnership with parents and students to assist students to achieve their potential. A focus on personal strategic planning helps our students gain the confidence and skills they need to be successful.

This Alternative Academic Program caters exclusively to senior school-aged students. Students enrolled in this option complete each senior school subject in one scholastic year; not over two years as is the norm in mainstream schools. This program prepares students for success at the tertiary level with: - an academic focus - considerable personal freedom (and consequent responsibility) - a balanced lifestyle.
University Prerequisite Courses (CATP)
Hubbard’s School University Prerequiste Courses form part of the Certificate IV in Adult Tertiary Preparation (10397 NAT). These courses are conducted at the school. Separately, the subject areas satisfy the prerequisites for courses requiring a Sound Achievement at Year 12 level at most Queensland universities. Students have the responsibility to confirm this with the university prior to enrolment.
Hubbard's School has enthusiastic, qualified and experienced staff who offer various types of coaching and tutoring:
- Academic Tutoring
- Special Tertiary Admissions Test Tutoring

Students making excellent progress in their Bridging Courses to satisfy Maths B and/or Chemistry this semester.
Lessons are held three times weekly for three hours each evening.
This format accommodates full-time work. It is challengeing to balance work, personal and academic demands but, with the guidance of effective and caring teachers, all students are succeeding.
Other students are progressing well towards satisfying a Physics prerequisite. These are enrolled in Hubbard's Flexi program. This program allows the students to pace themselves by working at home but also has the added advantage of lots of private and small group tutoring. Maths B can be done this way too.
Yet other students are working through a program to satisfy an English Prerequisite. a specialised format has been designed to accommodate individual needs.
By far our most popular method of satisfying prerequisites is Hubbard's Intensive program. Students enrol in just one subject area. Their day classes commence Wednesday 23rd November and conclude on Tuesday 20th December 2010. That's just four weeks. It is a very demanding option but very rewarding. Students work conscientiously for the whole time. they should not plan to do much else other than attend lessons and study during that time. The pass rate is extraordinarity high despite the workload and the timeframe. for QTAC applicants, results can be submitted to QTAC in time for January 2012 offers.
