2. Enrol your child

Year 5 and Year 7 enrolments

Three years prior to the preferred entry year, the enrolment process is initiated and families are emailed an Application Progression Questionnaire.

Conditional offers may be made to students based on review of the Application Progression Questionnaire and supporting documentation by the Head of School (or delegate).

Offers for a place are conditional based upon the following criteria being met a year prior to entry:

  • Submission of latest school report and NAPLAN results (where applicable)
  • Submission of specialist reports (where relevant)
  • For students with English as a second language, submission of AEAS test results with an English score of at least 60 for Year 5 entry and a score of at least 70 for Year 7 entry and minimum Stanines of 6/7. Please note AEAS test results are valid for 12 months only.
  • Families attending an enrolment interview with the Head of Middle School (or delegate)

Please note, Wesley College reserves the right to withdraw the conditional offer if the above conditions are not met or should we determine that we are unable to meet the specific needs of the student. If Wesley withdraws the conditional offer for any reason, the Confirmation Fee and Tuition Contribution Fee will be refunded. In all other circumstances, the fees are not refundable nor transferable to another year level or student. Please refer to the fee schedule for more information.

Enrolment into all other year levels

Up to two years prior to the preferred entry year the enrolment process is initiated and families are emailed the Application Progression Questionnaire. Families are invited for an interview with the Head of School (or delegate) and offers (including conditional offers) are made at the discretion of the Head of School (or delegate). For enrolments to ECLC ‘year level readiness’ is also assessed at interview.

Accepting an offer for all year levels

Upon receipt of an offer for a place at Wesley College, parents accept by:

  • Completing and returning the Acceptance of Offer documentation by the due date; and
  • Paying the non-refundable Confirmation Fee of $1,200 and Tuition Contribution Fee of $2,800.

If the payment is not received by the due date, the offer may be withdrawn. The Tuition Contribution Fee is deducted from the first account after the student has commenced and is most commonly deducted from the April account. This fee is not transferable, refundable or able to be deferred to a future year level.

For students entering the ECLC, the Tuition Contribution Fee is deducted from the first account after the student has commenced in Prep.
