Current Waitlist

Arden’s main entry points are Pre-School, Kindergarten and Year 7. The School will consider applications for entry to other years when places become available both in class groups and relevant support and enrichment programs. Arden endeavours to offer preferred placement to siblings of students currently attending the School and to children whose parents, grandparents or siblings have attended the School. All prospective students, regardless of preferred placement, must complete all steps in the enrolment process before they will be offered a place at the School.

CURRENT ENROLMENT INFORMATION

PRE-SCHOOL ENTRY IN 2018

The enrolment process for Pre-School 2018 began in April and we have paused on interviews as we await acceptances from families who have been offered places for 2018. As places are accepted or declined we will continue to interview families who have submitted an Application Form and are currently on our waiting list.

KINDERGARTEN ENTRY in 2018

Our Head of Junior School started interviewing prospective Kindergarten families earlier this year and has now paused on further interviews as we await acceptances from families who have been offered places for 2018. As places are accepted or declined we will continue to interview families who have submitted an Application and are currently on our waiting list. Families are still encouraged to submit an Application Form to gain a place on the waiting list.

Primary School entry in 2018

Our Head of Junior School is currently interviewing for available places in Years 2, 3 and 6. Families are encouraged to submit an Application Form to be considered for an interview. The invitation to attend an interview does not guarantee the offer of a place.

YEAR 7 ENTRY

All existing Arden Primary School students have continuing enrolment into our Secondary School. After those places are confirmed, Arden endeavours to offer preferred placement to siblings of students currently attending the School and to children whose parents, grandparents or siblings have attended the School. In order for this preferred placement to apply, the connection must be clearly indicated on the Application Form.

YEAR 7 ENTRY IN 2018

A limited number of places have now become available. Parents who are interested in a place for their child in Year 7, 2018 are strongly advised to download and submit an Application Form to be considered for a place.

YEAR 7 ENTRY IN 2019

Interviews for entry to Year 7, 2019 began in Term 4, 2016 and have continued this year. Our Head of Middle School has paused on interviews as we await acceptances from families who have been offered places for 2019. As places are accepted or declined we will continue to interview families who have submitted an Application Form and are currently on our waiting list. Families are strongly encouraged to submit an Application Form for their child, as soon as possible to gain a place on the waiting list.

Year 7 entry in 2020 and beyond

There are healthy waiting lists for entry to Year 7 in 2020 – 2025. Parents who are interested in a place for their child are advised to attend an Open Morning in 2017 to find out more about the educational offering at Arden. Once parents have determined that they would like to have the opportunity of enrolling their child at Arden in the future, we encourage parents to submit an Application Form as soon as possible to have the best opportunity of being offered a place in the future. Parents should also consider enrolment at Arden Primary School to provide for a transition to Arden Secondary and to guarantee a place in the Secondary School.

Limited places are available in Years 8, 9 and 10 in 2017. Interested families should contact the Registrar as soon as possible to receive further information on subject choices and availability.
