Admissions Criteria

Everything You Need to Know

Waverley College does not assess applicants on a first come first serve basis. When considering your son we look at the ‘whole person’ and identify applicants who are best suited to the College’s holistic approach to schooling. In the event that demand for places exceeds the number of places available, some applicants may not be invited to interview.

Enrolment Factors and Student Assessment

We take the following into consideration when deciding whether to offer your son a place:

  • Academic interests and achievements
  • Co-curricular interests and achievements
  • Community leadership
  • The desire to provide access to those who may/could not otherwise seek enrolment
  • The faith and beliefs of the student and parents/carers
  • Acceptance of, and commitment to, the ethos and goals of Waverley College
  • Family connections, including, siblings and Old Boys
  • Outcome of the interview process with the Principal or chosen delegate

International Students

We welcome applications from students of all nationalities. However, the College is not CRICOS registered. This means that we are unable to enrol full fee-paying overseas students with temporary subclass 571 visas.

Enrolment is primarily restricted to Australian citizens and permanent residents, but dependents of a temporary visa holder can also enrol. In this instance, the College will determine whether domestic or international student fees apply. The decision is based on the student’s eligibility for Government funding.
