At St Catherine’s School we welcome international students, and celebrate the diversity and global influences which they bring to our community.

We are committed to maintaining a balance of students across different regions and encourage an equally diverse international community. We have international students from China, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Brunei and Indonesia.

Our international students find the St Catherine’s School experience provides: close and supportive community, intellectual, social, emotional and moral development; high academic achievement; and diverse opportunities to pursue all areas of interest.

We invite you to take a virtual tour of our School or arrange a personal tour, at a time convenient to you. Our Registrar would also be happy to send you our Prospectus.

Boarding at St Catherine’s School provides our girls with a safe and comfortable living environment. They have the opportunity to make friends with girls from across Australia and around the world. Take a virtual tour of our fully renovated, National Trust-listed Victorian mansion providing a comfortable and unique home environment to our community of girls.

Gaining a Place at St Catherine’s School

To apply for a place at St Catherine’s School, international students should complete the Application for Enrolment Form.

A non-refundable registration fee of $220 (per non-resident student), a copy of the student’s Birth Certificate and Passport and a copy of the AEAS English Report (if applicable) or an IELTS test result must accompany the Application for Enrolment Form.

The student’s name is then added to a Waiting List for entry in the Year and Level nominated. When the student’s name is reached on the relevant list, students undertake a basic literacy and numeracy assessment to determine their educational needs, after which an interview with the Principal is arranged at which the parents or guardian and student attend, bringing with them current school reports.

A formal offer of a place in our School may then be made, and a non-refundable Entrance Fee of $1,800 for one child, or $2,500 (maximum) for more than one child, is immediately payable to accept a place. Upon receipt of such monies, formal confirmation of the place is provided.

We look forward to welcoming your daughter to St Catherine’s School.
