Lodging an Enrolment Application
To initiate an enrolment application, fill in the online application form here, or download and complete an application form below and return it to the College Office. Upon receipt of the completed application form and the application fee, your child’s name will be placed on a progressive waiting list for entry into the College. If your child is currently attending a school when the application is made, a copy of their two latest school reports and NAPLAN results along with a testimonial from the current school are required to be lodged with the application form.
Intake years are Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, Year 7, Year 8 and Year 10. Other years can be applied for, however, applications are usually waitlisted. Places for these years may only become available when a current student withdraws from the College.
The College can be viewed annually on Open Day or at other times by appointment through the Community Relations Office by contacting the Director of Community Relations on 9290 4205 or email email@example.com.
St Brigid’s College awards Scholarships for entry to Years 7 and 10 with the intention of assisting students to maximise their potential. The scholarships and are open to all students who are due to start Year 7 or Year 10 in 2020.
The College participates in the ACER (Australian Council for Educational Research) Scholarship Selection Test (SST). Scholarships are awarded on academic merit and an interview with the Scholarship Committee. Candidates must sit for the ACER exam. For entry into Year 7, 2019 and Year 10, 2020, the ACER exam will be held on Saturday 23rd March 2019.
Interviews & Position Confirmation
Applicants for Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten will be required to attend an interview with the Head of Junior School the year prior to entry. Applicants for other years in Junior School will be required to attend an interview as positions become available.
Year 7 applicants will be interviewed according to the selection criteria; the process for this begins two years prior to entry. Years 8, 9, 10 and 11 applicants will be interviewed according to the selection criteria and availability of places.
Following the interview either a letter of offer for a position will be given, or in some cases the applicant may continue to remain on the waitlist.
The Acceptance of Student Place Form, given with the Letter of Offer, should be returned by the designated date with the non-refundable Acceptance Fee.
When considering application for places into the Secondary Section the following priorities will apply:
- Catholic children with siblings already enrolled at the College.
- Catholic children from our Catholic feeder primary schools.
- Catholic children from other Catholic primary schools.
- Catholic children from non-Catholic primary schools.
- Non-Catholic children with siblings already enrolled at the College.
- Non-Catholic children attending Catholic primary schools.
- Non-Catholic children attending non-Catholic primary schools.
Other factors that may be taken into consideration, without prejudice to the above priorities include the date of lodgement of an application; applications for daughters of former students at the College; and day/boarding applications.
Variations to the above may occur where the Principal considers that there are significant pastoral issues which would place an application on a priority basis, given the College’s particular Mercy focus.
Parents who decline an offer of a place will forfeit their priority basis if they seek to reapply for a position in the College.
