Completing an Application for Admission
RGS is now proud to offer online enrolments. The online application allows families to enrol their child(ren) online and pay the application fee via credit card.
If you have any difficulties completing the online application form, please contact the School Registrar, Mrs Marissa Holloway, on 1300 GRAMMAR or firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can download a PDF version of the form which you can complete on your device. Simply save a copy and email it (with supporting documentation) to the Registrar. Or you may print it and return by hard-copy (mail) to the School.
If you have any queries regarding the completion of the application form contact the Registrar, Mrs Marissa Holloway, on 1300 GRAMMAR.
The Enrolment Process
STEP 1: APPLICATION
The first step is submitting an application for admission with the School, which includes all supporting documentation. You can do this in a number of ways:
- By completing the online application form
- By downloading and completing a PDF application and emailing it or posting it back to the School.
To complete an application, a $60 non-refundable application fee will be due. We highly recommend applications are submitted at least two years prior to year of commencement.
STEP 2: INTERVIEW
Vacancies permitting, your child will be invited to attend an enrolment interivew at the School in the year prior to nominated entry. Students applying for Prep - Year 6 will meet with the Head of Primary, and students applying for entry in Years 7 - 12 will meet with the relevant Head of Year, who will oversee the student's academic progress and pastoral care. All families will be taken on a full school tour as part of this process. Boarding students will also meet with relevant Boarding staff and tour the Boarding facilities.
STEP 3: OFFER
Following the interview, the Registrar will offer the prospective student a place, or inform the family that a place is not available. Offers are made at the discretion of the Headmaster.
STEP 4: ACCEPTANCE OF OFFER
To accept the offer of a place at the School, parents must sign an enrolment contract and complete other relevant documentation, including census data and medical information. A $400 non-refundable processing fee will also be due at this time. The enrolment will not be confirmed until the enrolment processing fee is paid and all forms are returned.
STEP 5: ORIENTATION
Orientation packages for new students are distributed in Term 4 of the year prior to entry, and contain everything they need to commence at RGS the following year. All new students, from Prep - Year 12, attend an orientation day prior to the full school returning in January. Incoming Year 7 students will have the opportunity to attend additional orientation sessions in the year prior to commencement, to help ease the transition into secondary school. New Year 7 and 8 boarding students will be invited to attend an orientation weekend at the School in late November.
