Fee Assistance

We believe that a great education should be available to all young people, regardless of their family’s financial circumstances. That’s why we provide means-tested fee reductions to eligible families. If you think that you will have difficulty paying full tuition fees please speak to our Admissions Team to see what options are available to you.

Fee Assistance FAQs

First of all, don’t worry! We offer means-tested fee reductions – this means we will look at your individual situation, including your household income, dependants and any extenuating circumstances. All families who will have genuine difficulty paying full tuition fees are encouraged to contact the Admissions Team for more information.

After you have accepted an offer, you’ll be asked if you would like to apply for fee assistance on your Admissions Form. Families who indicate that they need help with their school fees will be sent an online application form to complete. Once application is submitted, it will be confidentially assessed and we will get back to you with some options for your payment plan.

You’ll need to complete an online application form to apply. As part of this, you’ll need to supply the three most recent payslips for all parents contributing to fees, a copy of your health care/pension card (if applicable), and a form authorising us to check your Centrelink benefits (if applicable).

Yes, we look at your Centrelink benefits the same way we look at any other income. If Centrelink is your only income source, that will be taken into consideration when assessing your application for fee assistance. You can also opt to make your school fee payments directly from your Centrelink benefits.

Talk to us! We can do things like customising your payment plan to make your payments more manageable. We can do this even for families who are not eligible for fee assistance.

We’re flexible. Talk to our Finance Team and we can help set up something that will work for you.

That’s not a problem. Speak to us and we can reassess your eligibility. Families on fee reductions are assessed annually.

Yes, but because fee assistance is means-tested not all families will be eligible. All fee reductions are funded by the School, and we don’t receive any compensation for the forfeited revenue by way of external donations or additional government funding. The School’s annual budget for fee reductions is limited.

Give us a call and we can talk about your individual circumstances. There are a range of options available, but we can only help you if you reach out. School fees should never be a barrier to a great education. You can send us an email or have a confidential chat with our Finance Team on 02 9171 7001.
