Fees for Brothers

When brothers are attending the College at the same time, the eldest is charged full fees with: 10% reduction for the second; 15% reduction for the third; 25% reduction for the fourth and subsequent brothers (except when provision for a bursary or scholarship applies).

Terms and Conditions


Registration and Enrolment Fees

When a boy is registered for possible future enrolment, a Registration Fee of $250 (incl. GST) is payable. This amount is not refundable.

A non-refundable Enrolment Fee of $4,500 is payable before a boy’s enrolment can be confirmed. Boarding students are also required to pay a refundable deposit of $1,000.


Goods and Services Tax (GST)

Educational expenses including tuition are generally exempt from GST. The College reserves the right to charge GST for goods and services provided where exemptions do not apply.


TVET, OHS and Community Language Programs

Annual tuition fees will cover up to $1,000 of the net cost to the College for TVET, OHS and SSCL courses when the course is taken as part of a student’s normal curriculum. TVET courses are currently supported by funding from the AIS. This funding is not guaranteed, but, if received, will be applied to reduce the net cost of TVET courses.


K–6 Excursions and Amenities Levy

In addition to the tuition fees, an excursion and amenities levy for Years K–6 is charged to cover excursions and activities. The levy does not cover school camps and overnight excursions which will be charged separately, if applicable. This charge varies depending on the activities conducted by the Preparatory School. It will be included in the first invoice of the school year.


Rebate for Absence

In appropriate circumstances, the College may agree to credit up to 50% of tuition fees where a boy is absent for four weeks or more at a time because of illness or injury. Any request for such a credit should be directed to the Head of Corporate Services and should be accompanied by a medical certificate. Final determination of any such request will be at the discretion of the Headmaster.


Withdrawal from School or from Boarding

The school year consists of four terms. When a pupil is to be withdrawn, or is to change status from boarder to day boy, it is understood that the withdrawal or the change of status will take place at the end of a term. At least one full term’s notice must be provided to the relevant Head of Campus in writing.


Parents and Friends’ Association (P&F)

An annual levy of $35 per family (as determined by the P&F) will be billed in April.

International Student Fees

Full Fee Paying Overseas Students (FFPOS)

Enrolment Fee: $6,200 per day boy or $8,100 per boarder.

The enrolment fee is required by the College before an enrolment can be confirmed. Enrolment fees have a non-refundable component of $4,500. The balance of $1,700 is refundable. Please note that any unpaid charges will be deducted from the refundable portion. In addition to the Registration Fee, Enrolment Fee, Annual Tuition Fee and Boarding Fee (if applicable), international students will be charged:

Overseas Student Health Cover as set by the Australian Government;

HSC Fee for Year 12 students as set by the Australian Government ($1,133 in 2017);

FFPOS fee of $5,877.


When Parents Relocate from Australia

If parents of Overseas Students with Temporary or Special Residence leave Australia, their sons will be treated as FFPOS. They will need to pay an extra $1,700 Enrolment Fee for each day boy or an extra $3,600 Enrolment Fee for each boarder. These payments are refundable after a student leaves the College and the fee account is settled.


Payment of Accounts

The College will issue all fees in nine monthly instalments from January to September (inclusive). Invoices will be issued on the 7th of each month and payment is due on the 16th of that month, or the next business day where the 16th falls on a weekend or public holiday. If applicable, the FFPOS fee will be charged on the January invoice.

Please note the College’s Finance Department cannot process payments over the phone, nor will it accept cash payments, American Express or Diner’s Club cards.

Late payment may incur an Administration Fee of $125.

A student’s enrolment may be discontinued if fees remain unpaid. Similarly, a student will not be allowed to participate in a non-compulsory school event (such as a tour) unless tuition fees have been paid.
