Admissions Guide

For parents wishing their children to enter K1, Years 1 and 7, Central Applications are open in September of the year before they want their children to enter the school.

For all year groups, applications are open throughout the whole year. Parents can submit an application anytime. Applicants will be placed on the waitlist and they will be invited for an admissions interview when a vacancy becomes available.

For parents who wish to gain interview priority, they can apply for the Kindergarten Class A Debenture or the Nomination Rights Schemes which provide a fast track entry route for students into ESF kindergartens, primary, secondary or all-through schools.
