Enrolling for Kindergarten 2023 and beyond
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 placement 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, 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.
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 Application to Register. Please note that this includes payment of the non-refundable application fee of $270.
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 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.
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 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 Bond. If enrolling in Year 7, you will also be required to pay a Year 7 Placement 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.
Annual fees are levied equally over Terms 1-4 for Kindergarten to Year 11, and equally over Terms 1-3 for Year 12.
Parents have the option of paying Tuition Fees via 10 equal monthly instalments over the period February to November.
For more information, please view the linked Terms and Conditions and contact email@example.com by Friday 10 February 2023.
Fees include most camps and non-elective sport activities. There may be additional cost to parents for activities such as particular camps, co-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.
Tuition Fees and Ancillary Charges must be paid by the due date on each invoice. If these are not paid within the period specified on the invoice, 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 Collection Agency or a Solicitor.
