Discover & Enrol

Thank you for considering our College. We are confident we offer the best mix of opportunities for your child locally. Joining our community is a four-phase process outlined in our enrolment handbook, and summarised below.

Our major enrolment period occurs between late April and late July, when applications are received, interviews conducted and places offered. As part of our response to Covid-19, our annual Open Day has been cancelled.

We have experienced extremely high demand across all year levels for 2021 places.  If, after July, you are interested in a position for 2021, please return and enrolment agreement, subject selections and  application fee as quickly as possible.

If you are an Australian Defence Force family, visit here for more information about the support we offer you.
