How to Apply

Applications for enrolment are accepted throughout the year, but we do recommend applying early to allow for a smoother transition process.

  1. The Expression of Interest Form is designed for prospective students commencing Year 7 studies in the next calendar year.
  2. The Enrolment Application Form is for prospective students applying in the current calendar year for any year level, or for prospective students who have completed an Expression of Interest Form and have been asked to progress to the Application round.
