Enrolment Journey

 An exciting opportunity for your child

If you are inspired by our love for learning and would like your child to experience the many opportunities on offer at NBCS within a nurturing environment, we invite you to complete an Enrolment Application.


Applications are placed on our waitlist and are progressed subject to the date of your application. While we welcome your application, we cannot guarantee all applications will progress to an interview or offer of a place.


Parents wishing to lodge an application are strongly advised to do so well in advance, especially for Year 7. Positions on the waitlist are determined by the date of your application. NBCS Primary students have an automatic place in Year 7 subject to a Year 7 Commitment Fee.

How to Enrol

1. Discover more about NBCS

Take a school tour to discover the NBCS difference within our world-class campus. You will have the opportunity to meet the Heads of School and our Registrar, and see our teachers and students in action.

Further details on entry availability can be found in our Current Enrolment Updates.

Book your School Tour here.

While you wait to visit NBCS, we invite you to download the Prospectus and watch our Virtual Tours.

2. Lodge Application to Register

Once you have decided you would like to be a part of the NBCS community, we invite you to complete and submit the online Enrolment Application Form. Please note that this includes payment of the non-refundable Enrolment Application fee of $350.

Before you begin, you will need copies of your child’s birth certificate and passport, or evidence of Australian citizenship/visa documentation, and your child’s school reference contact details.

Upon receiving your application form, we will send a confirmation that your application has been successfully lodged and we will add your child’s name to the waitlist for the relevant year.

Registration does not guarantee the opportunity for an interview or that your child will be enrolled at NBCS. We will endeavour to keep you updated on the status of your application and will also keep you connected with what is happening in our school community.

You are welcome to apply without having toured the school first although we do recommend booking a tour to give you an insight into the life of our school.

3. Request for Information

Prior to your desired year of entry, we begin contacting families on the waitlist to gather further information. If you wish to proceed with your application, you will be sent the Pre-Interview Questionnaire to complete. You will need to return the completed form by the date specified, including copies of your child’s two most recent school reports, NAPLAN, and any other relevant specialist reports or individual learning plans.

For Year 7, the enrolment process begins two years prior to the desired year of entry and for all other year groups, it begins one year prior.

4. Interview

Once we receive the requested information, we will select students to participate in an interview, based on our enrolment criteria and the order in which applications were received. 

Should your child be successful in reaching the interview stage, we will invite you to attend an interview with your child. Please note that an interview does not guarantee an offer of a place.

5. Offer of Place

Following the interview, if your child has been successful, you will receive a Letter of Offer along with the Enrolment Acceptance Form to complete.  

To accept the offer, you are required to sign the enrolment contract and pay the non-refundable Enrolment Fee and Bond. If enrolling in Year 7, you will also be required to pay a Year 7 Commitment Fee. These fees must be paid before the expiry date of the offer to confirm acceptance. Fees are non-refundable should your child not start at NBCS after your confirmed acceptance.

School Fees

Tuition Fees are billed at the commencement of each Term. Tuition Fees are levied equally over Terms 1-4 for Kindergarten to Year 11, and equally over Terms 1-3 for Year 12. Fees include most camps and non-elective sport activities.


Parents have the option of paying Tuition Fees via 10 equal monthly instalments over the period February to November, or once per Term (by the end of Week 3 of each Term).

Ancillary Charges are billed towards the end of each term. These are additional costs to parents for activities such as incidentals, bus fees, particular camps, co-curricular programs, excursions and elective subjects.

Our preferred method of payment is BPAY. BPAY allows payments to be made from a cheque or savings account, as well as from credit card accounts. However, some financial institutions treat credit card BPAY payments as cash advances with the possibility that interest charges accrue immediately. If you are wanting to use your credit card for the monthly instalments option detailed below, please check with your financial institution if your payments will be treated as cash advances. 

Payment of Tuition Fees

OPTION 1: 10 equal monthly instalments – payment via BPAY only 

Tuition Fees are paid via 10 equal monthly instalments over the period February to November. These payments must be scheduled by the payer (you) using your financial institution’s BPAY interface. Note that monthly instalments must be received by the 17th day of each month, February to November.  

There is no additional charge for electing to pay over 10 monthly instalments. An administration fee of $60.00 will be charged and added to the Ancillary charges statement for each payment received after the 17th of each month. We will however provide grace and allow for two instances of late payment in a year before levying the admin fee. This allows for any unforeseen errors that may occur.  

If you wish to participate in the 10 monthly instalment arrangement, please contact the Finance team by sending an email to no later than Monday 12th February 2024. 

For more information and the Terms and Conditions of OPTION 1, please view the linked Terms and Conditions.

OPTION 2: One Payment Each Term – payment via BPAY is preferred 

Payment of Tuition fees is due at the end of Week 3 of each term. 

Please note that administration charges apply for late payment – refer to page 2 of your statement for details.
