Step 1

Application for Enrolment

Completing an Application for Enrolment is the first step towards enrolling your child at Scots College. It is a simple online process and the College welcomes all applications. 

Completing an Application for Enrolment form does not constitute acceptance as all students must first be interviewed by the Headmaster or a Principal.

Some Year Levels do have application closure dates. Please see these outlined in the information above.

International applications can be found here

Step 2


After you have completed the Application for Enrolment, we will be in contact to arrange an interview with the relevant Year Level Principal in the year preceding entry to the College. This interview is an integral part of the application process.

Step 3

Offer of Place

At the conclusion of your child’s interview an offer of place may be made and your acceptance will be required within a specified timeframe. To confirm enrolment, you will need to complete a Confirmation of Acceptance package which will be emailed to you and make the required payment.

Step 4


Once you have completed the Confirmation of Acceptance agreement and made payment of the relevant fees your child’s place at the College will be deemed confirmed.

Class Size Limits

Class size limits are in place at certain Year Levels to ensure the delivery of a personalised education. There are still limited spaces available in the Junior (Years 1-6) and Senior (Years 11-13) Schools and we welcome enrolments across both the Junior and Senior Schools for 2022 throughout the year. Please note, from the conclusion of Term 2 2022, no places will be available in Year 6 in our Junior School as numbers transitioning through to the Middle School will have been confirmed and finalised

Once a Year Level reaches capacity then the College may offer the option to join a wait pool to be kept informed if places become available. There can be movement of places as some families situations change. If you are considering a Year Level that has reached capacity, we encourage you to contact a member of the enrolment team to discuss your options before completing an Application for Enrolment.

Admission decisions will fully support the values of Scots College and are made at the discretion of the Principal or Headmaster. When making offers of a place, Scots College may take into consideration the applicant’s affiliation with the College, but are not limited to siblings of current or past students, students whose parents or grandparents attended the College, former students, date of application, international students, boarding students and those who are re-enrolling.
