When is the enrolment period?

Catholic schools accept enrolments across the school year and you are encouraged to enquire about any availabilities should you wish to have your child attend a Catholic school mid-way through the year.

However, enrolments into Catholic schools for the following year take place between March and May when parents and their children are invited to come to the school’s open day and enrol.

Does my child need to be Catholic to attend a Catholic school?

St Bede’s Catholic College is open to ALL families seeking a Catholic education for their child. 

Students do not need to be Catholic to enrol at St Bede’s, but we do have a responsibility to the children of Catholic families. In choosing to enrol your child at our school, families agree to respect and support the Catholic identity of the school and acknowledge the priority of Religious Education in the life of the school. 

Enrolment Process and Policy

In recent years the Catholic Diocese has received unprecedented demand for school entry across our Diocesan schools. This demand, combined with the desire to offer families a pathway for their children from Kindergarten through to Year 12, has led to the Diocese revising and adjusting the Enrolment Policy.    

The policy sets out the prioritisation for enrolment in schools and applies to all students seeking enrolment at a Catholic School in the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle (CDMN).

For further information on the enrolment prioritisation criteria please visit the CSO website at:

A commitment to Catholic education when considering priority of enrolment for secondary education means enrolment at a CDMN primary school from Kindergarten or at least the commencement of Year 4 for priority enrolment for secondary schools.
