Middle and Senior School enrolments

Our Enrolment Management Plan is currently under review with the Department of Education.  Decisions regarding the processing of Expressions of Interest received for 2019 will be communicated towards the end of Term 3. This applies to all applications including Excellence programs and Academic Achievers.

The submission of an Expression of Interest for enrolment does not guarantee a place at the college for in catchment students until all evidence and requested documents have been submitted and approved by the Executive Principal.

Processing Fee

A non-refundable Processing Fee of $220 applies for all new out-of-catchment applications. This fee is payable at the time the application is submitted.

Enrolling at the College

Decision on enrolment

Selective Entry - The Executive Principal is responsible for all decisions on entry enrolments and his decision on selection will be final. There is no internal review of the Executive Principal's decision.

Local Catchment Area - The Executive Principal is responsible for all decisions on enrolments and may request any additional documentation and conduct other enquiries deemed necessary to satisfy eligibility criteria.

The applicant may respond to the Executive Principal's preliminary view by making a submission to the Executive Principal, no later than seven days after receiving the preliminary view letter.

If no submission is received, the Executive Principal's preliminary view will be treated as the final decision and no further notice will be provided.
