To apply for enrolment, an Application Form is completed and returned to the School together with a non-refundable application handling fee of $220.00 (GST inclusive) for each application.

Upon receipt of application, all names are placed on a register for the relevant year. The application does not constitute an enrolment at this time. As part of our enrolment procedure, the school will hold an interview with your daughter and your family prior to final enrolment. Enrolment is not complete until an offer is made.

Approximately 18 months prior to the nominated year of entry, the School will contact you to set up an interview, following which an offer of enrolment will be made. Should you wish to proceed with the enrolment the school will request a written confirmation from you and the payment of a non-refundable confirmation fee to secure the confirmed place.

Scholarship Opportunities

St Margaret’s offers two types of scholarship:
* Academic
* Performance

Academic Scholarships

Eligibility to apply for an academic scholarship requires the applicant to sit for the ACER (Australian Council for Education Research) exam.

The scholarship covers secondary school education and students wishing to apply for scholarship for Years 8, 9 and 10 must sit the exam in Year 7. Similarly students wishing to apply for a scholarship for Years 11 and 12 must sit the exam in Year 10.  Students already on academic scholarship for Years 8, 9 and 10 must re-apply for an academic scholarship for Years 11 and 12 and thus must re-sit the exam in Year 10.

The applicant is selected according to her academic performance in this national exam.  She and her parents are also required to attend an interview with the Principal or Deputy Principal.

The ACER exam is conducted in May each year and attracts a fee paid to the Australian Council of Educational Research.

Performance Scholarships

These scholarships are offered to girls who demonstrate a broad based performance across a range of activities with a minimum of one speciality area.  The applicant needs to meet the criteria in 2 or 3 areas across academic, sport or music disciplines.
