Admissions

Interested parents should contact the Enrolments Secretary by telephone on (02) 8302 5218 or email to stivesenrolments@sydgram.nsw.edu.au

The main points of entry into the School are Preschool, Kindergarten, Year 3 and Year 5. Each year the School has a limited number of places available in Years 1, 2, 4 and 6 and enquiries into these years can be made at any time during the year.

For young boys entering Preschool or Kindergarten, an informal play based assessment establishes readiness for our programme. Assessments for boys in Years 3-6 become more formalised as a boy gets older. Boys who perform well in their entrance assessments are invited for an interview with the Headmaster, accompanied by their parents.
