When to Apply

It is never too early to apply and it is strongly recommended that applications be lodged by the time your daughter is in Year 2.

All applications are held on a register until the offer process begins. Late applications will be accepted and considered on an ongoing basis until the commencement year.

During 2020 we will be interviewing the following cohorts for entry into Year 7 (in this uncertain time, interviews will still go ahead and will be held via Zoom)

  • Early in 2020 interviews will be held for Year 7 2021 and Year 7 2022
  • Mid-2020 interviews will be held for Year 7 2023 entry

Enrolment Considerations

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

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.
