How to Enrol

1. Watch our Virtual School Tours

Meet our Heads of School and get a better understanding of what our campus feels like and what we have to offer at NBCS. Consider Current Enrolment Updates to ensure that we are accepting applications for the year you are considering. Book a school tour or submit an ‘expression of interest in a tour’ until we get back to normal tours.

2. Lodge Application

Complete and submit the online Application to Register form, together with the non-refundable Application Fee of $270.

Please note, you can partially complete and save this form and return to it anytime to complete the application. 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.

On receiving your Application form, we will add your child’s name and contact details to the list of prospective students for the relevant year. You will receive confirmation that your application has been successfully lodged. Your position on the waitlist is determined by the date of this application.

Once a student is on the waitlist, it is possible to move them to a future waitlist or to bring the desired year of entry forward to an earlier waitlist. Your child will slot into the new waitlist based on the date of their original application.

3. Student Interview

If you wish to proceed with your child’s application, prior to their desired year of entry you will be sent the Enrolment Interview Questionnaire Form to complete and return by the specified date with copies of your child’s two most recent school reports and NAPLAN results (if applicable). We will select students to 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, an interview does not guarantee an offer of a place.

4. Offer of Place

If your child has been successful, you will receive an official Letter of Offer, along with the Student Enrolment Information Form to complete. To accept the offer, you are required to sign the Enrolment Contract and pay the non-refundable Enrolment Fee and Enrolment Bond. If enrolling in Year 7 you will also be required to pay a Year 7 Placement Fee. These fees must be paid in advance before the expiry date of the offer, to confirm acceptance. The fees are non-refundable should your child not start at NBCS.

We will advise you if we are offering a place, if your child is to remain on the waiting list, or if we are not able to consider your child for a place.

School Fees

Annual fees are levied equally over Terms 1-4 for Kindergarten to Year 11, and equally over Terms 1-3 for Year 12. Fees are due Friday of Week 1 each Term.

Fees include most camps and non-elective sport activities. There may be additional cost to parents for activities such as particular camps, extra-curricular programs, excursions and elective subjects.

Parents are required to notify the School Office of any changes of name or address, and to ensure the School Office has a record of current contact information, including active telephone numbers and email addresses.

 

School fees must be paid by the due date on each invoice, including school tuition and other ancillary charges. If school fees are not paid within the period specified, administration fees will be charged, and the School has the right to suspend or terminate enrolment.

Repayment of the debt cannot be refused by reason of any allegation or complaint relating to the services provided by the School nor by reason of any set off or cross claim made against the School. The collection process for any outstanding fees may involve placing the matter into the hands of a Solicitor.
