Attendance to all classes is compulsory. In the case of absence from school, due to illness, a doctor's certificate must be provided for absence of more than two consecutive days. Any other absence from school must be approved in advance by the Director of International Education. It is a Department of Home Affairs Student Visa requirement that overseas students must attend at least 80% of their full-time course of study and must not absent for 5 consecutive days or more without approval or risk the cancellation of their student visa.
High School Preparation students and Senior School students may not return home at the end of term, before assessment is complete and cannot request to undertake the assessment earlier or change the date of assessment. This is Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) policy.
Students may not miss summative assessment items for such things as family holidays, non-School representative sporting commitments or outside work. Students who miss summative assessment for these reasons will receive a zero for the piece of assessment. For Senior School students, this will severely affect ATAR results. The School is also not permitted to move an assessment date for students in this situation.
Further information can be found in the School's Attendance Policy.
Students must work diligently in class and complete all homework, assignments and assessment.
Students are required to pass end of term tests at each level of the High School Preparation Program before progressing to the next level within the course.
Students must attain the required level of English language proficiency, before they will be offered a place in the Mainstream School.

b) The course progress of all students will be assessed at the end of each semester of enrolment according to All Saints Anglican School’s course assessment requirements.
c) Students who have begun part way through a semester will be assessed according to the School’s course assessment requirements after completing one full semester.
To demonstrate satisfactory course progress, students will need to satisfy the following requirements after the completion of any full semester of study:
