Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Year 7 are the most popular entry points. However, students do apply for other years especially Year 3 and Year 5. All applications are on a wait list until interview. For intake years this is in the two year period prior to commencement. For other year groups it is closer to the expected commencement. Offers are made after interview, based on date of application.
We can waitlist students for other year groups, as required, in case a place becomes available.
A child must turn four years by March of the year of commencement.
The child should be five by the end of May.
