Academic Policy

St Philip's College aims for a high standard of academic achievement and strives for a high Year 12 pass rate. While recognising that each student must accept the ultimate responsibility for academic performance the College offers a great deal of academic support for all students who require it.

Homework Centre

The library is the Homework Centre and is staffed from Monday to Friday until 4.30pm by teaching staff in a supervisory capacity.  It is supervised by library staff until 6.30pm from Monday to Thursday and until 4.30pm on Fridays.  It is expected that students attending the homework centre undertake their own quiet work.

Subject help sessions are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in English, Mathematics and Science subjects from around 3.15pm to 4.30pm in various rooms outlined below.  One of the computer rooms, room 19, is also open on these same days for students needing to use a computer.  There are a small number of computers in the library for general student use at other times.


Please read the College's Student Promotion Policy for further clarity on the expectation of active participation by our students so they can succeed at the College.
