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.

Apply online here. Please note this is a domestic application form.

International applications can be found here

Step 2

Interview

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

Acceptance

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.

Enrolments for 2022 and beyond

Class size limits are in place at certain year levels to ensure the delivery of a personalised education.

Enrolment spaces in the Middle School for both boys and girls in years levels 7, 8, 9 and 10 in 2022 are now at capacity. There are still spaces available in year levels 1-6, and limited spaces in year levels 11, 12 and 13. Applications for enrolment in 2023 and beyond are also open and we would encourage families to submit applications as far ahead as possible.

Students who are already attending the College are guaranteed a place in the following year level. 

Once a year level reaches capacity then the College may offer an applicant a provisional enrolment or the option to join a waiting pool to be kept informed if spaces become available. There can be movement of places as some families situations change. If you are considering any of the year levels mentioned above as at 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. 

Provisional Enrolments

If you have completed an application for enrolment and an interview with a Principal but no places are available, then a provisional enrolment may be made. If/once a place becomes available then a formal offer of place will be made and at this time parents/caregivers will be asked to confirm their acceptance of this place by payment of a confirmation fee and educational bond. 

Any families on a provisional enrolment are required to inform the College of any changes in contact details or circumstances.
