Timetabling Solutions is the premier source for timetabling services worldwide. 

We can analyse your school's requirements and recommend a curriculum model.  We can analyse your current timetable and make recommendations as to how to achieve more constraints or use the functions of the program differently to improve your timetable.

We have many clients with more than 1,000 students who have their timetable constructed by our consultants in 5 days, 9am to 4pm.  Many schools bring their partly completed timetables and work with a consultant to finish the construction of their timetable.  This service maximises the skill of the consultant with the knowledge and decision making abilities of the client to achieve a great timetable in the minimum of time.

Consultations at our office or at your school are available on any timetabling matter.

Estimate of Time

To construct a usable, clash free draft timetable starting from a clean sheet with firm data entered, checked and ready to timetable is two days plus one day per 200 students. [e.g. Five days, 9am to 4pm, for a school of 600 students.]  This estimate of time assumes the school's representative is working with us.  Each day this cannot occur will increase the estimate by an extra day. 

  • If student grid lines for options or elective subjects need creating or recreating, then add approximately one day per year level.
