Cathedral College Wangaratta is an open entry school and students are placed on our applicant list according to the date on which Cathedral College Wangaratta receives a completed Enrolment Application which can be found here: CCW Application for Enrolment 2018.
Please also find our prospectus which can be downloaded here: Prospectus 2018.
Throughout the year we schedule a number of school tours. Our school tours are conducted during normal school hours in order to show exactly how our school functions every day, although there is the option of a Twilight Tour for those who may find an evening time more suitable. Meet with the Principal for a brief talk before commencing a 30 minute student-led walk through the campus viewing the main facilities and visiting classrooms. Following the tour, there will be a chance to meet Senior Staff and ask any questions you might have about life at Cathedral. All members of the family are welcome to attend. If you would like a tour of the school, please visit the School Tours page here and select a tour date and time that suits your family.
Alternatively, please contact the Registrar Louise Trenkner on firstname.lastname@example.org or (03) 5722 2144 with the names of your children, the current school, the years of entry required and we will book you into one of our scheduled Talk and Tours that are held throughout the year.
Years of Entry
Students may enter the School at any Year Level depending on the availability of places. To avoid disappointment, particularly for the major entry points such as Prep and Year Seven, we advise that all applications are made well in advance. If a place is unavailable, students will be placed on a Waiting List and the school will inform you as soon as a space becomes available in the Year Level Cohort. If there is no movement in our student numbers you have the opportunity to remain on the Waiting List each year.
Please note acceptance of this Application for Enrolment is subject to the approval of the Principal and does not guarantee a place. Application Forms can be dropped off in person, scanned by email to email@example.com or sent in by post. The College can contact you for payment over the phone, although we are unable to accept payment until the completed paperwork has been received. You will need to attach a copy of the student’s
• Birth Certificate
• most recent school report (if applicable)
• a Medicare summary of current immunisation
• any documentation relating to known learning/behavioural/physical issues and relevant assessments/reports. Failure to disclose this information may result in any offer of place being withdrawn.
Once this has been received, your child is added to our Waiting List for the nominated year level(s). A fee of $55.00 is payable on submission of this form and payment may be made by eftpos, cash or cheque. Applications without all the accompanying documents will not be processed nor receipted until all documents are received.
Children who are well-placed on the Waiting List and have all completed documentation are invited to attend an Admissions interview with their parents/guardians. During these interviews with the Principal or appropriate Heads of School, you may ask questions and seek further information about the School’s curriculum and programs. The interviews also enable us to get to know your child and discuss their interests, strengths and needs.
Please note that the interview process takes place according to sibling priority and Waiting List order, and can take several months to complete for intake years. Following the Admissions interview and at the advice of the Principal or Heads of School, a formal Letter of Offer may be provided.
To accept the offer, a $150 non-refundable Confirmation of Enrolment Fee must be paid and the Enrolment Confirmation Form returned within fourteen days of receiving the Letter of Offer. The College will provide written Confirmation of Place once the documentation and the Enrolment Confirmation Fee has been provided.
