Position on the list of applicants for each year level is determined primarily by the date that the application is received.
Westbourne Grammar School is a co-educational school and will endeavour to provide gender balance* across the school. Applications must be completed for each student for entry to the School regardless of whether a sibling is already enrolled and attending the School. Waitlists are developed by date of application, however priority of admission is as follows:
- Siblings of existing students
- Children of past students
- Children of current, permanent staff members
Students come from a diverse range of social, cultural and economic backgrounds both locally and internationally. The School requires all new student applicants from Year 5 onwards to sit a placement test to ensure we are able to offer appropriate academic programs and pathways.
International Student enrolments and entry requirements are managed differently and information can be found on our website (link) in the International Students Policy and Admissions Policy Handbook.
*Please note: Westbourne Grammar School currently operates with an exemption to the Equal Opportunity Act to enable the structuring of waiting lists to ensure greater gender balance in our co-educational school.
