Enrolment Procedure

Our friendly enrolments team at The Rockhampton Grammar School are here to guide you through the application and enrolment process and answer any questions you may have. 

Step 1: Application

The first step is submitting an application for admission with the School, which includes providing all supporting documentation. You can do this in a number of ways:

To complete an application, a $60 non-refundable application fee is required. 

Applications are open all year round, however we highly recommend they 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 interview at the School in the year prior to nominated entry. Students applying for Prep to Year 6 will meet with the Head of Primary, and students applying for entry into 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 the interview. Boarding students will also meet with Boarding staff and tour the Boarding facilities.

Step 3: Offer

Following the interview, the Registrar will offer your child a place at the School, 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 enrolment at the School, parents must sign an enrolment contract and complete other documentation that will be requested in the offer, including census data and medical information. 

 A $400 non-refundable confirmation fee will be due at this time. The enrolment will be confirmed once the enrolment processing fee is paid and all documentation has been provided.

Step 5: Orientation

Orientation packages for new students are distributed in Term 4 of the year prior to entry, and contain everything families need to commence at RGS.   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 boarding students will be invited to attend an orientation weekend at the School in late November. 

For students commencing during the School year, our enrolments team will provide families with all the necessary information and guidance to ensure a smooth start to school at RGS.
