When to Apply
It is never too early to apply and it is strongly recommended that applications be lodged by the time your daughter commences Year 3.
All applications are held on a register until the offer process begins. This process occurs 2 years prior to the date of commencement, that is, at the start of the calendar year your daughter is in Year 5. It is usual that the majority of offers are extended and confirmed by the end of Term 2 of that year.
How to Apply
The Brigidine College St Ives Application Form is available online. For admission to the College this form must be submitted with a non-refundable Application Fee of $230. The Application fee is waived for daughters and granddaughters of alumni.
The online Application Form will require copies of the following to be uploaded:
- A recent photograph of the applicant
- A copy of the Birth Certificate
- A copy of the Baptism Certificate
- Recent School reports, including NAPLAN results
- A covering letter from parents
An acknowledgment of receipt of the application will be sent to parents.
In processing enrolments, consideration is given to the following criteria:
- Sisters of Brigidine students and ex-students or other Brigidine connections
- Daughters of ex-students
- Students attending Catholic parish schools or other Catholic schools
- Religious identity
- Those able to demonstrate a case for ‘special consideration’ e.g. interstate move
- Receipt date of application
- Discretion of the Principal
In all cases, the College will seek to achieve a congruence of values between the applicant’s family and the school. A covering letter should be included with your application indicating your reasons for seeking to enrol your daughter at Brigidine College St Ives.
All enrolments are at the discretion of the Principal. Due regard is given to recent School reports and other documents given to the College e.g. testimonials, references, that suggest a congruence between home and school.
All applications are subject to there being appropriate vacancies. The College has a policy of containment of enrolments so that it can continue to function as a school of the most desirable size.
