Enrolment Policy

Enrolment of Year 7 students

Simonds Catholic College draws its enrolments from Priority Parishes. Due to the school's central location for transport and parental work, its small size and particular curriculum offerings and emphasis, some parents choose, on pastoral grounds, to enrol their sons at Simonds rather than their local regional college.

 


Enrolment Criteria

Boys will be offered a place in Year 7 in the following order of priority:

  • Catholic boys who live in a Priority Parish and attend a Catholic Primary school.
  • Catholic boys who live in a Priority Parish and who do not attend a Catholic Primary school.
  • Children from non-Catholic Eastern Churches who attend a Catholic Primary School.
  • Children from non-Catholic Eastern Churches who do not attend a Catholic Primary School.
  • Catholic boys who do not live in a Priority Parish and wish to attend Simonds for pastoral reasons.
  • Non Catholic children who have attended a Catholic primary school and are residents of the catchment area.
  • Non-Catholic boys who have not attended a catholic primary school and are residents of the catchment area.
  • Non-Catholic boys who do not live in the catchment area.

Note: Siblings and applicants whose sister attends / has attended either St Aloysius College or The Academy of Mary Immaculate will receive special consideration.

Priority will be given to those families who submit enrolment applications by the due date each year.

Families who submit late applications may be placed on a Waiting List. The above Enrolment Criteria will then apply to the Waiting List.
