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.
