Families are welcome to submit an enrolment application at any time; however, we encourage the submission of applications as early as possible in order to ensure greater success in being offered a position in the chosen year of entry.

Enrolment places will be offered according to the following key priorities:

  1. The date on which the application was received
  2. Girls whose sisters already attend the College
  3. Daughters and relatives of Old Scholars

Places will be offered subject to availability and enrolment priorities. A formal offer will be made after an enrolment interview.

Pre-Enrolment Process

What Happens After you Apply?

Once you have submitted your application, you will receive written confirmation and your application will be processed.

Two years prior to entry, you will be contacted to schedule a time to meet with the Principal/Head of Junior School.

Following your meeting:

  • You will receive an offer of placement and an Acceptance Form from the Principal
  • To accept the offer, you will be asked to complete the Acceptance Form and pay a non-refundable Acceptance Fee of $675. Siblings of current students and children in the Loreto ELC pay a discounted fee of $375.
Prior to Commencement

At Loreto we pride ourselves on the successful transition of new students to the College. In the year prior to commencement all girls begin the transition process which involves spending a day at the College as well the formal Orientation Day in Term 4. All Reception students have three visits prior to commencement.

This is an exciting time for the girls and their parents and helps girls to become acquainted with school life at Loreto.

Register for a College Tour

We encourage you to see how your daughter’s future can take shape at one of our upcoming College Tours where you will see our curriculum in action, tour our historic grounds, and hear from Ms Kylie McCullah, our Principal, on why a girls’ school is the best investment for your daughter.
