Enrolment Process

There are a number of steps involved when you are ready to enrol your child at Hillbrook. These steps are explained below. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our Enrolments Team using the contact form at the bottom of this page.

Year 7 Enrolment

Step 1 - Application for Enrolment

Submit an online Application for Enrolment with a non-refundable registration fee of $220 and required documentation. The acceptance of your registration will place your child on our waiting list. You need to complete one form per child.

Note: submission of an Application for Enrolment does not guarantee an enrolment or an interview. 

Step 2 - After the Application

Our enrolment process begins when your child is in Year 4. We will contact all families on the waiting list as part of this process. Please note, not all families on the waiting list will receive a first round interview. 

Step 3 - The Interview

It’s important to note the aim of this interview is to enable parents to make a confident and informed decision about their child’s education and a chance for us to get to know your family.

Step 4 - The Offer

Following the interview process, places are offered in writing, within a few weeks. Offers are made according to sibling status*, staff children, gender balance and date order of Application of Enrolment. *Siblings of current or future accepted students are given preference.

The maximum number of students for Year 7 is 150.

Step 5 - The Acceptance

If you accept the offer of a place at Hillbrook for your child, you will be required to accept the Enrolment Agreement online and pay the initial Reservation Payment in order to secure your place.

A second payment will be due before high school commences.  The ‘fees in advance’ component of these payments will be credited towards your final Term’s tuition fee.

Note: Reservation payments are non-refundable should you cancel your child’s place.

The Process

Year 7

Students who did not receive an offer prior to the start of Year 7 will automatically have their enrolment rolled over into the following year – unless parents advise us to cancel or we are unable to contact you.

Years 8-12

We are happy to accept applications for entry into Years 8-12 and would encourage you to call our Enrolments Office to discuss this option prior to lodging an application. Our offers are made on date of application and as places become available we will contact the family next in line on our waiting list.

Entry from the start of Years 11 and 12 will be at the discretion of the School Leadership Team.

Current Student

One term’s notice is required if you wish to withdraw your child from Hillbrook. Failure to provide this notice will require payment of a full term’s fees, as per the Enrolment Agreement.

Students completing Year 10 are given until the beginning of Term 4 to decide on their future, although earlier notification of an intention to withdraw will always be appreciated.

As our family’s journey comes to a close, our connections with the school, students and families continues, Helen and I want to express our gratitude for all that Hillbrook has done in shaping the future and character of our two sons.
