Kingswood College is a mainstream independent, co-educational school for students from Kindergarten to Year 12. The College has student intakes in Kindergarten, Pre Prep, Prep, Years 4, 7 and 11 and other year levels across the College as places become available.
We encourage early applications for entry in future years, and you can apply online.
The main intake years at the College are Kinder, Pre Prep, Prep, Year 4 and Year 7. From time to time limited vacancies do arise in other year levels.
The Kinder and Pre Prep programs are offered on fixed and predetermined days. Kinder (3 year old) is offered two days a week (Tuesday and Wednesday), three days a week (Monday, Thursday and Friday) or five days a week. Pre Prep (4/5 year old) is offered three days a week (Monday to Wednesday or Wednesday to Friday), four days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) or five days a week.
The preferred Kinder or Pre Prep program is nominated when accepting an offer of enrolment.
Children must be at least three years of age by 1 February in the year they commence the Kinder program. If your child turns three after the start of the academic year it may be possible to commence in the Kinder program once they have turned three however this is subject to places being available.
A non-refundable $110 application fee per applicant is required. To accept an offer of enrolment a non-refundable $1,500 enrolment fee is payable, of which $700 is credited towards the students first tuition fee invoice. Students accepting a place in Kinder or Pre Prep also have the option of securing a subsequent Prep enrolment with a non-refundable $1,000 Prep holding fee. The holding fee is credited toward the Term Two Prep fee invoice.
Applications are submitted online, via the application portal (click the ENROL NOW button above). The following must be provided to complete each application:
Applicants cannot be considered for a place until all the required documents have been provided.
Applicants names are placed on the waiting list for the year and entry level requested. An application for enrolment does not necessarily guarantee a place as there are often more applicants for each intake than there are places available. In general, applications for admission are placed on a waiting list in order of receipt of the application. Priority for admission may be given to certain applicants. More information can be found in the College’s Enrolment Policy
The enrolment process commences two years prior to Year 7 entry (ie. when applicants are in Year 5) and in the year prior to entry for all other year levels. All applicants for Prep to Year 11 are required to attend an enrolment interview with the relevant Head of School before an offer can be made. Interviews will not be scheduled until all relevant reports and documents have been provided. Applicants for Kinder and Pre Prep are not required to attend an interview however a meeting with the Early Learning Centre Coordinator may be required prior to commencement.
The enrolment process for each intake will continue until all available places have been filled.
Offers for enrolment are made in writing and must be accepted within ten working days. To accept an offer both parents/guardians must sign an acceptance of the terms and conditions of enrolment (both signatures are required unless there is a legal reason not to do so). The signed acceptance must be accompanied by a non-refundable $1,500 enrolment deposit, $700 of which is credited toward the first tuition fee invoice.
Once an offer has been accepted the student’s enrolment in the relevant year and level is confirmed. The Year 7 transition process begins in April/May in the year prior to commencement. The transition process for all other year levels begins in October/November in the year prior to commencement.
