Enrolment Information

We take great pleasure in welcoming new families into our school community.

Who Can Enrol?

Sydney Catholic Schools are open to all Catholic families, as well as families from Orthodox churches, families from other Christian Churches, and those from other faith traditions or non-religious backgrounds who are prepared to support the ethos, values and liturgical and sacramental practices of the Catholic Church.

When to Enrol

You can apply to enrol your child in a Sydney Catholic School at any time although the formal enrolment period commences in March. Primary school students must commence school before they turn six years of age, and applications are accepted in the year prior to commencement. Secondary colleges accept applications two years prior to commencement.

Enrolment Process

Before an enrolment is finalised, parents/carers are usually interviewed by the principal or a delegated staff member. Documents required at this interview include the completed enrolment form, birth certificate, baptismal certificate, immunisation statement, any relevant medical records or health assessments, and passport if you are newly arrived in Australia. Secondary schools may require academic results or reports from the student’s previous school.

The processes and decision of enrolment are determined by the individual school based on the context of the parish and school community and in accordance with Sydney Catholic Schools’ Enrolment Policy.

K-12 Pathways

From primary school to secondary college, a good Catholic education is for life. Students who follow the Catholic education pathway from Kindergarten to Year 12 experience a sense of continuity in the approaches to teaching and learning.

Primary schools are ‘feeder schools’ into nearby Sydney Catholic Schools’ secondary colleges, where its students are entitled to priority enrolment, along with students from parishes without primary schools.

Students attending the following schools have priority enrolment at Good Samaritan Catholic College:
