How supported your child is an important thing for parents, and to help identify what schools provide a higher number of staff in their school. Private School news Australia has completed its annual analysis on student staff ratios.

The criteria that was used for this analysis

  • The school had to have more than 100 students.

  • Total full time staff was a combination of teachers and support staff.

  • The information was used from 2018 My School data in September 2019.

  • Student staff ratio is the number of students for each full time staff member at the school

Please note this table is purely based on number of students and full time staff. This does not factor in any programs or results the school is undertaking or achieved. Or does not represent specific class sizes.

Adelaide Private Schools | 2018 Top Schools for Student Staff Ratios

Parent Research, Student teacher raiosMark Lovatt
stencil - 2019-09-11T120817.769.jpg

How supported your child is an important thing for parents, and to help identify what schools provide a higher number of staff in their school. Private School news Australia has completed its annual analysis on student staff ratios.

The criteria that was used for this analysis

  • The school had to have more than 65 students.

  • Total full time staff was a combination of teachers and support staff.

  • The information was used from 2018 My School data in September 2019.

  • Student staff ratio is the number of students for each full time staff member at the school

Please note this table is purely based on number of students and full time staff. This does not factor in any programs or results the school is undertaking or achieved. Or does not represent specific class sizes.

How does your private school perform?

We would love to hear your feedback by writing a Private school review

How To Get The Most From Your Tutoring from Cluey Learning

Mark Lovatt

A good tutoring experience is tailored to the needs of your child. Don’t settle for a one-size-fits-all scenario. 

Tutoring can be a considerable expense on top of regular school fees so it’s understandable that you want to maximise your investment. But judging the short and long term effectiveness of tutoring isn’t just about exam results. 

Getting the most from every minute with your tutor often comes down to finding the right fit. Is the format suitable for your child’s learning approach and attention span? Does the tutor provide enough encouragement and clarity? Is the content aligned with what they’re learning at school?

 

Here’s how to achieve the best tutoring experience for your child. 

 

Choose The Right Tutor

Unlike a regular classroom situation, which offers little or no input when it comes to teacher allocation, you can actually choose who tutors your child. When finding the best fit, look beyond academic credentials (although these are certainly important) to the interpersonal factors that will shape the relationship between your tutor and child. These things impact the way your child learns just as much as the right study materials and practice questions.  

 

Does the tutor communicate clearly? Do they have a forceful or overbearing nature? Are they playful or serious? Perhaps your child needs a humorous teacher or maybe a more disciplined approach is best for them. If your child is struggling with confidence, look for someone who displays clear tendencies towards patience and support. Don’t be afraid to shop around to find the right candidate.  

 

Ensure The Content is Relevant and Up to Date

Quality content is one of the most important aspects of learning. Not only should the practice questions and textual analyses be current and mapped to the Australian curriculum, but these resources need to be as useful as possible to each individual student. This means that resources must be aligned with what a student is covering in class, as well as being appropriate to their individual learning needs. 

 

Review Their Progress and Approach

A child’s development can shift and leap within weeks, especially with the personalised attention that comes from tutoring. What they may have been struggling with at the beginning of the year might be one of their best subjects by term’s end. Similarly, constant monitoring and regular progress reports let you know if a method just isn’t working for your child. Switching tracks quickly, whether that means changing tutors or rethinking your approach, means that you don’t waste time and money on a bad experience. 

 

Look Beyond Test Scores 

We all want our children to do well. Whether it’s because we’re investing so much in their education or simply because we want them to have every opportunity after they graduate, there’s no denying that good grades are a pathway to future success. Tutoring is absolutely intended to help improve your child’s grades, however another, more fundamental purpose is to bolster their confidence and deepen their enjoyment of school so that they might become a lifelong learner. 

 

By all means, pay attention to whether those assignment marks or test scores improve within 3-6 months of tutoring, but also take note of your child’s attitude towards study, and make sure you see a positive uptick.

Saint Spyridon College in Unley Celebrates 15 Years of Excellence

School NewsMark Lovatt

This year marks 15 years since Saint Spyridon College - a small, close knit school nestled in the heart of Unley - first opened its doors. Established in 2004, the strong, independent school has invested in high-quality education, combining small class sizes with energetic and innovative teachers to allow students to strive for their best.


Saint Spyridon College is limited to 100 students for each school year and no more than 15 students per class. Staff place emphasis on well-being, mindfulness and reflection, which ensures small class sizes with higher engagement from all students and allows every child to engage with their learning. In addition, Student Voice and Agency is integral to the school, which allows children to learn through activities that are meaningful and relevant to them as learners, driven by their interests, and self-initiated with appropriate guidance from teachers. The opportunity to speak publicly and develop these skills is introduced as early as Reception.


Founded on the values of the Greek Orthodox Church, the school is gently guided by its namesake, Saint Spyridon Parish, Unley. While based on Greek Orthodox Christian values, children from all faiths and backgrounds are welcomed at the school.


To encourage this growth and diversity, on 29 July, the college welcomed 17 students and three teachers from Beijing and surrounding provinces in China for the first of three study tours.

“Our community hosted Chinese students from the ages of 5 - 12 years in their first trip to Australia. The students and their families chose Saint Spyridon College for our authentic learning of STEM, interactive language lessons and small class sizes,” Principal Corones said.

“As a small college, we are excited about opening our doors to our international friends and anticipate great cultural awareness and a growing understanding of how childhood and education differ across the world,” Principal Corones continued.

Saint Spyridon’s strong community focus ensures that each new family is welcomed into the community and has an opportunity to have their voice heard. The college is very active in the Unley community including participating in the Unley Greek Festival and multicultural events held with the Sturt Football Club. Giving back to the community is instilled in the students through relationships with Aged Care residents, reading to local Kindergarten and ELC children, sharing the college environment with local children, and holding fundraisers that contribute to the less fortunate. The school also holds a range of events throughout the year to celebrate the important people in students’ lives, including Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Grandparent’s Day.

“We aren’t a school that focuses solely on academic education for our students. Our Vision is that Saint Spyridon College graduates will be well-rounded, competent individuals, that give back to their community and have the confidence and wisdom to embark on new challenges, achieve personal goals and be pro-active, responsible members of society,” Principal Corones concluded.

Saint Spyridon College holds Taekwondo lessons for students with teacher and silver medallion winner Petros Karavasilis and Acquaintance nights for parents to engage with the teachers and their children’s learning. The College also embraces the use of technology in communicating with parents, with apps that help parents track their child’s progress and interact with the child’s class, with another app that informs parents about school updates.

Saint Spyridon will be celebrating their fifteenth anniversary on 1 November, with a school concert and dinner for families.
