one and all

Choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent. We understand this should be a careful, considered process and are here to help you through each stage of the journey.

St Catherine’s is more than its broad curriculum, rigorous academic program and countless cocurricular activities – we are a community.

Our staff, students, parents and alumni work together to help every girl find their own great, equipped to make her unique contribution to the world. We can’t wait for you to be a part of it.

We have four standard intake years for the majority of new students: Kindergarten, Years 3, 5 and 7, with students from the junior school guaranteed entry into the senior school.

If you are considering St Catherine’s for your daughter, you will need to apply to be placed on a waitlist for her preferred year of entry. We recommend this application is completed as soon as possible.

We highly recommend visiting us to see the school in action. We hold Open Mornings four times a year at which you can hear more from our staff and see our students at work. 

Steps to enrolling

We have aimed to make the enrolment process as straightforward as possible, while ensuring you can get the information you need and connect with us appropriately.
