Enrolment

How to Enrol

We are delighted that you are considering 49ͼ. The school you choose will play a significant part in your child and your family’s life. It is where children spend at least five out of their seven days of the week, for most of the year! Given the investment you make financially and emotionally, choosing the right school takes care and consideration, and assistance from the school from the start is crucial in helping your decision-making.

It would be a privilege to assist you to understand what an Oxley education would look like for your child, and more than that, what the Oxley community would mean to your family. If you have any questions about the College or enrolment process for entry to any year from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 11, please feel welcome to contact the Registrar, Mrs Lucy Welsh via (02) 4861 1366 or enrol@oxley.nsw.edu.au. You may enquire prior to applying if you wish, but it is not a requirement.

If you would like a copy of the full prospectus, you can complete an online form or call (02) 4861-1366.

To apply for enrolment at 49ͼ, parents and guardians are required to complete and return the Application for Registration Form to enrol@oxley.nsw.edu.au and submit payment for the Processing Fee via or by calling the College via (02) 4861 1366.

Enrolment Process

  1. Prospective families explore 49ͼ via Open Mornings, a private tour, our Prospectus and the website.
  2. Submit an Application for Registration. Upon the College’s receipt of the Application, together with the required processing fee of $220, the child’s name is placed on the Admissions list for the required year of entry. Registration itself does not constitute enrolment. A letter confirming receipt of the application will be sent via email.
  3. In the years preceding entry, all applicants will be invited to an interview with a member of the College Executive. For Year 7 applicants, this will occur two years prior to the year of entry. For Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and Year 3 (2025 only) applicants, this will occur early in the year prior to entry. For all other years, the interview will occur as soon as a place is available in the desired year of entry.
  4. Pending outcomes of the enrolment interview, a Letter of Offer is issued via email.
  5. Acceptance of the offer by the parents is confirmed following receipt by the College of the Enrolment Agreement and non-refundable Enrolment Charge of $2,800 by the stipulated date.

Waiting Lists

The 49ͼ policy is to offer places to applicants on our waiting lists, with selection according to set criteria.  These criteria include the date of application, whether a scholarship has been offered, whether the applicant has a sibling/s attending currently or future siblings for the next year, (siblings must have been on the list for at least two years before sibling priority comes into place), family affiliation with 49ͼ – child of an Old Oxleyan, (child of an Old Oxleyan must have been on the list for at least two years before the Old Oxleyan priority comes into place), child of 49ͼ Staff.  The 49ͼ Waitlist Policy 2018 is available to download.
