Application closing dates and cut offs for admissions
Applications for Years 3 and 5, 2022 and Year 7, 2023 will close on Friday, 29 January 2021 and the entrance examination for these Year groups will be held in February 2021. If you have not yet applied on behalf of your son for one of these Year groups you are invited to do so now.
The College is also accepting applications for Years 3 and 5 2023 and Year 7, 2024 and beyond.
Year 3 and 5 places are offered in the year before your son commences. Year 7 positions are offered two years before.
How the application process works
Applications can be made to the College from birth. When assessing applications, preference is given to boys who are baptised Catholics, whose families are active members of their Parish and who can show they will be comfortable in the academic environment the College offers. No priority is given to the date of application.
Prospective students are invited to sit an entrance examination (held every February) to determine their academic potential. Before your son can sit the examination, we also require completion of registration documents, including a Parish reference.

To assist in determining whether a boy will be a ‘good-fit’ the College considers:
- the results of his entrance examination and other academic documentation
- your family’s involvement in a faith community
- whether your family’s value system is congruent with that of the College
Based on the above criteria, a number of applicants are invited to attend the College with their family for an interview. After the interview process is complete, places are offered to selected boys and, if the place is accepted, an enrolment fee paid to secure the position.
The College is fortunate to receive more applications from many well-deserving candidates than there are places available. All applicants are assessed on their faith and academic potential and consideration is also given to any previous or current association with the College. However, prior or current association cannot guarantee a place will be offered.
