Joining The King's School
Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you will make on behalf of your child and we are delighted that you are interested in starting your child’s education at The King’s School.
Joining King’s, your child will enjoy the extraordinary programs and facilities that the school offers, and just as importantly, your family will find a genuine sense of belonging.
In the words of our founder, William Broughton, “The education received in The King’s School is not for the exclusive benefit of those upon whom it is bestowed, but for that of the entire community.”
We encourage you to review the Joining section of our site in full to assist you as you consider The King’s School for your child.

Steps to enrolling
Our process is intended to be efficient yet thorough, so that you may learn more about us, and we about you. We choose candidates through 4 main steps.
Complete the online Student Enrolment Registration Form and pay the non-refundable $250 registration fee.
Please be sure to upload supporting documentation including a copy of the applicant’s birth certificate, NAPLAN (where relevant) and the two most recent school reports (where relevant).
2. FAMILY INTERVIEW AND ASSESSMENT
While The King's School does not adopt a chronological waiting list, it is advisable to register for enrolment early to avoid disappointment.
Our community is important to us and for this reason, applicants who are chosen to be interviewed for a position will be invited for a family interview. The interview provides an opportunity for us to get to know your family - and for you to get to know our School. Interviews are conducted by the School Registrar and/or the Admissions Manager.
Family interviews will be conducted in the 9 to 18 months before anticipated commencement.
For Tudor House and the Preparatory School, School readiness assessments are conducted by the Registrar during the interview process.
3. OFFER OF A PLACE
Your child’s registration will be reviewed and an enrolment decision is made. You will be notified in writing if an offer is to be made or if your child’s name will remain on the waiting list.
Following your family interview, an Offer of Place to attend the School may be made. Such an offer will nominate year and level of entry and whether the place is as a day student or boarder.
Boarding places cannot be transferred to Day places. If parents decide to accept the offered place on their child’s behalf, a signed acceptance form (both parents and/or guardian need to sign an acceptance form, as this becomes the binding contract between the School and families) and the nominated fee will be acknowledged, with a place confirmed.
4. ACCEPTANCE OF PLACE
A student’s place is secured when all appropriate documentation has been signed and returned and the non-refundable student admission fee of $4,500 has been paid.
