The Enrolment Process

Parent(s)/guardians submit an Application for Enrolment form with required documentation.  A non-refundable application fee of $100 accompanies this application. Applications are reviewed by the Enrolments Office.

A  conditional place may be offered.

A conditional place means that the School will provisionally hold a place for the student in their year group for the entry date as offered. This conditional place is not the confirmed place offer or confirmation of commencement at the School. An enrolments administration fee of $500 is paid by the parent(s)/guardian(s) to accept the conditional place. This fee is non-refundable in any circumstances, except if a confirmed place is not offered by the school following the pre-enrolment process.


Application waitlisted

If a conditional place cannot be offered at the time, your application will be waitlisted for future consideration when a conditional place becomes available or any additional and required information is received. A waitlisted application may only progress by moving to the Conditional Place stage

A request is made by the School to receive up-to-date student information 9 to 24 months prior to commencement.

Pre-enrolment information is to be sent to the Enrolments Office which will include specific year entry questions, school reports, health and wellbeing and independent information.

A pre-enrolment review of up-to-date information and/or interview with the Enrolments Manager may also occur.

The Enrolment Office and/or Head of School may identify the child’s pre-enrolment information needs to be further reviewed.  This review process is conducted with an Enrolment Review Panel, which may include the Principal/Deputy Principal, Head of School, Learning Support Staff and/or a School Psychologist.

Families are invited to attend an enrolment interview with a Head of School.

A letter of offer for a confirmed place may be provided within 14 days of the interview with a Head of School.

The Parent(s)/Guardian(s) are to provide a signed Enrolment Contract and pay an Enrolment Deposit within the prescribed timeframe to the Enrolments Office.  The Enrolment Deposit will be published in the School’s fee schedule from time to time.  The Enrolment Deposit is non-refundable in any circumstances and is not used in lieu of School fees.
