Waiting lists operate for all year levels at Overnewton and are placed in date order of receipt.
On receipt of your enrolment form and application fee, your child’s name will be placed on our waiting list. When a vacancy becomes available you will be contacted to ascertain your continuing interest and to organise an interview with the relevant Head of School.
Following this interview, you will be advised whether a place has been offered to your child. Should you accept this offer you will be asked to confirm your enrolment by paying the enrolment fee of $900. This fee is a one-time payment, is non-refundable and is in addition to the annual school fees.
How long am I likely to be on the waiting list?
It is impossible for us to accurately say how long you will be on the waiting list as this is dependent on a number of factors, however, listed below is the procedure for entry at the major entry points including casual vacancies.
PREP ENTRY: Each year 144 students are admitted to the College; offers for siblings of current / past students, children of Old Collegians and practising Anglicans will take priority, followed by those in order of the date of their application. The enrolment process will normally begin in the first half of the year prior to the year of desired entry and will continue until all places have been filled.
Those remaining on the waiting list after the completion of this process will be contacted only when a position becomes available in order of priority.
YEAR 5 ENTRY: There is a limited intake at Year 5 each year; interviews for siblings of current/past students and children of Old Collegians will take priority, followed by those in order of the date of their application. The offer and interview process will normally begin a minimum of 18 months prior to the year of desired entry.
YEAR 7 ENTRY - The interview and offer process will normally begin 18 months prior to the year of desired entry. Interviews for siblings of current/past students, children of Old Collegians and practising Anglicans will take priority, followed by those in order of the date of their application.
Vacancies sometimes occur after this process has been completed in which case further interviews would be organised to fill these vacancies.
Those remaining on the waiting list after the completion of this process will be contacted when a position becomes available in order of priority.
CASUAL VACANCIES: These are vacancies that become available when a student attending the College withdraws. These vacancies can occur at any year level and at any time throughout the school year and are filled as soon as they occur.
Applicants are considered in order of the date of their application – siblings of current / past students, children of Old Collegians and practicing Anglicans take priority as previously detailed.
When will you contact me?
You will be contacted immediately a place becomes available and you are next on the waiting list.
From time to time the College may contact you via telephone or post in order to update information regarding your application. It is very important to respond to such requests so that the College can maintain the most up to date information possible.
What should I do if I change my address or other information?
It is very important that you advise the College immediately of any changes to the information that you have provided on application.
What should I do if I am on the waiting list and am no longer interested in enrolling my child at Overnewton?
Should you decide that you no longer require a position at Overnewton College, please ensure that you advise the College in writing immediately of your request.
Is the waiting list strictly adhered to when allocating places?
Places at Overnewton College are offered in accordance with the Enrolment Policy of the College.
Priority is given to siblings of current / past students, children of Old Collegians and practising Anglicans and then in order of the date of application. Any variations to this policy are at the discretion of the Principal only.
