Enrolment Information

“Our mission is to evangelise – to proclaim Christ, the Good News of God’s love for all. All our pastoral activities must, therefore, both flow from our personal response to Christ and be carried out in the spirit of the Gospel.” Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle Pastoral Plan, Moving Forward Together, 2011 (Theological Principle 3.1) 

Why Catholic education? 

Catholic schools are centred on the person of Jesus Christ and are called to live and proclaim the message of the Gospel. Supported by, and in collaboration with, the Catholic community of which they are a vital part, Catholic schools encourage staff, students and their families into a personal relationship with Jesus, challenging them to find, through Him, meaning and value in their lives. 

The College is an integral part of the Parish and Pastoral region’s program of outreach to Catholic families. Enrolment in a Catholic school enables the local Catholic community to offer support to parents in the faith education of their children. In addition, Catholic schools contribute significantly to the Australian community by promoting quality education and a just and tolerant society. 

Does my child need to be Catholic to attend All Saints' College? 

No. All Saints' College is open to all who want to share its educational goal, inspired by Christian principles. In accordance with each school’s enrolment vacancies, preference is given to students who are baptised Catholic and who live in the local parish and then to children of Catholic families from other parishes who wish to enrol. However, schools are open to all who wish to be guided in their education by the principles and teachings of Christ. 

All families and their children, Catholic or non-Catholic, are invited to have a Catholic education but must be willing to participate in the religious life of the school.  

When is the enrolment period? 

All Saints' College accepts enrolments at any time of the school year, however the official enrolment period for the following year is during Catholic Schools Week in March each year.  

We encourage enquiries about availabilities should you wish to have your child attend a Catholic school midway through the year. 

Year 7, 2018 – St Peter’s Campus  

Students from Catholic primary feeder schools 

Parents of Year 6 students currently studying at St John the Baptist Maitland, St Joseph’s East Maitland, St Joseph’s Dungog and Holy Spirit Kurri Kurri will be provided with application forms by their current primary school during Catholic Schools Week for enrolment at All Saints' College. Parents are encouraged to return it to their Catholic primary school by the end of Term 1. 

Students from non-Catholic system schools  

Parents wishing to enrol children at St Peter’s Campus for Year 7 2018, who do not go to a Catholic primary school are asked to request an enrolment pack to be sent out. The enrolment period runs until May 1. Enrolments received by this date will be considered by the enrolment committee when they meet during May. Applications are still encouraged after this time, but places are limited so it is encouraged that applications are submitted as early as possible.  

Year 11, 2018 – St Mary’s Campus  

Students from St Peter’s Campus 

Year 10 students currently studying at ASC, St Peter’s Campus, will have their school enrolment automatically rolled over for study in Year 11, unless otherwise specified to St Mary’s Campus.  

Students from other schools  

Parents wishing to enrol children at St Mary’s Campus for Year 11 2018, who do not currently attend St Peter’s Campus are asked to contact the office and request an enrolment pack to be sent out. The enrolment period runs until May 1. Enrolments received by this date will be considered by the enrolment committee when they meet during May. 

What is the enrolment process?  

Once an application is received, it will be placed onto the waiting list for that year group and will be reviewed in line with other applications when a position becomes available. Positions are determined against the enrolment criteria when a position becomes available rather than how long they have been on the waiting list. 

Overseas Students 

A small number of places in schools in the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle may be available to students on visas who share our Catholic faith and ethos. At the present time, no students with a visa subclass 500 are able to be enrolled into diocesan Catholic schools.

Enrolment Policy 

All Saints' College follows the guidelines provided by the Catholic Schools Office Enrolment Policy. This Enrolment Policy has been devised in order to accommodate the needs of families seeking a Catholic education. It aims to set direction for school procedures and practices for enrolling students into Catholic primary and secondary schools within the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle. It aims to establish a common and consistent approach in enrolment practices and assist the system of Catholic schools to provide schooling, where possible, for all Catholic children who seek enrolment, cater for the individual needs of each child equitably within the constraints of the available teaching and material resources and to encourage parents enrolling their children in Catholic schools to give support to parish and school life, especially in education in faith.
