Thank you for considering Newman College as an option for your child’s education.

Kindergarten and Year 7 are the two main entry points for enrolment.  Applications for other year levels are accepted at any time, with families contacted to provide details on availability. Newman College is unable to accept certain visa categories from overseas students.  Please contact the Enrolment Office for further information.

The College accepts Enrolment Registrations at any time via this Website. Please note that due to high demand for school placements, the College cannot offer enrolment to all applicants. We encourage you to register your application well in advance of your desired admission year. It is recommended that Registrations are received at least 3 years in advance of entry into Year 7, and at least 2 years in advance of entry into Kindergarten. However, late applications will still be considered if numbers allow, or changes occur within current enrolment numbers.

Families are allocated interviews according to the Enrolment Policy.

When submitting your Enrolment Registration please note that you will be provided with further detailed information to complete at a later stage from our Enrolment Team (including the Parish Reference Form).

You are encouraged to attend one of our tours so that you and your child might gain an insight to the College operation and clarify any outstanding queries. Click Book a Tour to register for a tour.

The first point of call for those families considering an enrolment is Ms Jo Dunn at 9204 9412 or registrar@newman.wa.edu.au

We encourage you to register an Enrolment Application well in advance of the entry year. Our two major intake years are Kindergarten and Year 7.

Applications for Kindergarten open 2 years in advance and Applications for Year 7 open 3 years in advance.

Upon completion and return of the Enrolment Application form and Application Fee of $130, students are placed on a prospective future students’ list.

Prospective students not born in Australia, are required to provide proof of their Australian citizenship/residency or visa details.

This enrolment procedure must be followed for each child in the family wishing to secure a place.

Not all Visas are accepted at Newman College.

Enrolment interviews take place during intake periods for major intake years. For students enrolling into another year, families will be provided with alternate dates for interview.

Although Catholic students are prioritised for placement, students of other religious denominations are also fully considered and subject to availability, as per the College’s Enrolment Policy.

College Tours are held several times a term across all campuses and are advertised on the College website. Click here for the current tour schedule…

After interviews, families may be offered a place for their son or daughter. Following an offer, a period of five weeks is granted to accept the position and make payment of the Confirmation Fee for the first sibling. This will secure your child’s future place.

We accept students from many different schools.

Having a sibling at the College or a parent who attended the College will give your child priority on the waiting list, but it does not always guarantee a place.

Due to the changing nature of waiting lists, we do not advise of a child’s actual position at any point in time. The College will keep in contact with you should your child be in a position to proceed with enrolment.

For further information regarding the enrolment process please contact our College Registrar, Jo Dunn on (08) 9204 9412 or registrar@newman.wa.edu.au
