We teach students from schools all over Sydney

The teachers at QED have really helped me not only with my studies, but also with my approach to school and my motivation. They genuinely care a lot about all their students.

Our Lady of Mercy High School

The classes are great and I’ve progressed a lot by attending the weekend workshops for areas where I’m weak.

Carlingford High School

QED is life.

Parramatta High School

QED has helped me solidify my ranks and get those last few marks.

Macarthur Girls High School

My biggest problem going into Year 11 was motivation and drive. I feel like that’s something the staff at QED really pay attention to and try to help motivate. Not to mention the classes are great!

Castle Hill High School

I love coming to QED, they actually make learning fun.

Sefton High School

I came to QED as a Year 9 in the summer of 2017. I was a delinquent, inconsistent with my studies with an air of failure following my every step. Fast-forward a year, to the end of Year 10, and I’ve topped my classes, for the most part due to the excellent tutorials, detailed booklets & invaluable workshop tutors.

St Mary’s High School

QED helped me get better at Maths with their classes and Sunday workshops, and I also made two friends!

Giraween High School

QED is the best college! There’s always a good vibe inside and outside of the classroom.

Penrith Selective High School

QED’s methodical and personal approach to learning is an invaluable asset to my learning. At QED, I get weekly booklets with exam-certified questions tailor-made to meet syllabus outcomes, with all the key concepts reasoned with & tackled at tutorials.

Parramatta High School

I love going to QED! James and Peter care so much about the college and making sure all their students are set up to WIN!

QED Education is an amazing place to learn. It provides students with a quiet learning environment where it is easy to ask for help, tutors who are exceptionally skilled in their fields and an abundance of physical material to learn from.

Baulkham Hills High School

The best part of QED are the weekend workshops. They are super helpful when you don’t quite understand everything in class and the tutors are always really friendly.

Knox Grammar School

I was beginning to lose hope for tutoring after mum made me trial at FIVE different colleges, but thankfully I have found my home at QED!

Parramatta High School

The best part of QED is how natural it feels rocking up after school to study in the workshop rooms, made some really good friends there as well.

Our Lady of Mercy High School

Unlike a lot of other colleges in Sydney, QED will always make time for each student, even if you don’t go to a top selective school…
