A warm welcome to families who are interested in finding out more about the St Hilda’s School community! We look forward to working with you and offering every assistance through the enrolment process.
In recognising that your choice of school for your daughter’s education will be one of the most important decisions you make, we hope our website provides you with a comprehensive overview of the breadth of opportunities available across our challenging curriculum, exciting co-curricular activities, leadership initiatives and superb facilities.
We welcome enquiries and applications for entry into all year levels. Tours of the 14ha campus may be arranged from Monday to Friday, between 8.30am and 4pm (boarding tours available until 3pm).
Enrolment Information for Australian Students
The Enrolment Application Form is available in the Links section on this page. Please complete the Application Form and return it with supporting documentation and the Application Fee of $110. Please ensure that the application is signed by both natural parents, whether married or divorced, as we encourage both parents to be supportive of their daughter’s education at St Hilda’s School. Following registration, you and your daughter will be invited to participate in an enrolment interview. This interview will be conducted by the Heads of the Junior, Middle or Senior School and involves discussion school life, curriculum, co-curricular opportunities and any other aspect relevant to your daughter’s education.
A formal offer of enrolment will be made following the enrolment interview. To accept and reserve a place for your daughter in the nominated year level, we will ask you to sign an Enrolment Contract and pay a non-refundable Enrolment Confirmation Fee of $980.
A student buddy will be assigned to welcome and introduce your daughter to other girls on her first day. The Head of Year for your daughter’s cohort also will work to ensure your daughter receives a warm welcome and has a smooth transition across academic and co-curricular pursuits.
