Enrolment Downloads

For students wishing to enter Year 7 or 11 for the following year, forms will need to be handed in during the enrolment period with suitable documentation. Forms handed in after the deadline may cause the application to be added to a waiting list.

With every application, the College requires a birth certificate, baptismal certificate (if applicable), a copy of the latest report card, and immunisation records.

Once forms have been handed in, the application will be assessed using the Catholic Education Office Enrolment Policy.

For the main Enrolment Period, letters of offer are generally sent out in June and must be returned to secure your spot at the College.

For all other enrolments, places will be offered subject to availability. If there are no places available, the application will join a waiting list.

Enrolment Periods

The primary Enrolment Period for the College is during the month of May for students wishing to start Year 7 or 11 the following year. In 2018, the Enrolment Period for Year 7 and Year 11 2019 is 30 April-25 May 2018. The 2019 Enrolment Period for Year 7 and 11 2020 is yet to be confirmed.

During this time, the College holds a series of Information Sessions for prospective students to experience MacKillop ahead of making their decision.

Enrolment forms may be handed in before the Enrolment Period but are due before the end of Enrolment Period or they will automatically be placed on a waiting list.

Enrolments for year groups other than Year 7 and Year 11 are accepted throughout the year. Places are offered subject to availability.
