Hubbard’s School is a co-educational, independent private school in Queensland. Hubbard’s offers an alternative academic program catering exclusively to senior school-aged students. We aim to facilitate the development of our students to become independent and confident learners who contribute to society in a positive manner. We champion “U-centric” learning focused on the personal strategic achievements of our students.
The Hubbard’s School educational program is recognised as an alternative, differentiated, rigorous academic pathway. This pathway and pedagogical approach are tailored to prepare and support academic students who require a flexible education program to cater to their personal situation. Some of the reasons that students choose this pathway include alternate learning styles, sporting commitments and heavy training schedules (such as dance, music, sports, and drama), and various medical circumstances.
Approach to education
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 School 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 full potential. A focus on personal strategic planning helps our students gain the confidence and skills they need to be successful.

At Hubbard’s School, students complete each senior school subject in one scholastic year as a compressed subject rather than over two years as in mainstream schools.
The compressed General Subject Syllabuses assessments are formative in Units 1 and 2 and summative in Units 3 and 4. The summative assessment tasks consist of 3 Internal Assessments and 1 External Assessment. The External Assessments for the learning areas of Humanities subjects contribute to 25% of the overall subject results. In the Mathematics and Science subjects, External Assessments contribute 50% of the overall subject result and assess Units 3 and 4 of the Syllabuses. External Examinations take place at Hubbard’s School from the last week of October to mid-November each year.
Students at Hubbard’s receive an ATAR if they successfully complete 5 subjects and attain a Pass grade in English. The five or more subjects used to generate an ATAR may be a combination of results from General Subjects of certificate III or higher.
* Fees for this program in 2023 are $4,250 per subject. Students usually study 3 subjects per year, however this is tailored to the individual student.
