Admissions for Sons and Grandsons of Old Newingtonians
The College is keen to attract sons and grandsons of Old Boys to Newington.
New Admissions Policy for Old Boys
Due to the consistently high demand for places, the College Council recently endorsed a new Admissions Policy to formalise the priority status of sons and grandsons of Old Boys.
The Council has confirmed its commitment to prioritising registrations of sons and grandsons of Old Boys as long as registrations are received in accordance with the following:
- Kindergarten entry – registration and fee must be received and paid by the boy’s first (1st) birthday
- Year 3, 5 or 7 entry – registration and fee must be received and paid by the boy’s fifth (5th) birthday
- Unfortunately, due to the demand for places, if registration is not made by the relevant birthday, we cannot offer priority and the registration will be placed on the wait list for that year in chronological order of registration.
Due to the increasing demand for placements, the College’s enrolment process has been rigorously followed and enforced since 2009,
Since November 2014 the School Council formalised priority for sons and grandsons of Old Boys policy with the following provisions:
Rural and Regional Boarding Fee Relief
The Council is committed to growing the Edmund Webb Boarding House in the years ahead and is keen to ensure that regional and rural boarders continue to be well represented.
- If a boy commences in Year 9 in the Boarding House and resides there for four consecutive years, then the College will waive payment of the Year 9 and Year 12 Boarding fee. Therefore, a four year boarding commitment equates to only two years of boarding fees.
- If a boy commences in Year 10 in the Boarding House and resides there for three consecutive years, then the College will waive payment of the Year 10 Boarding fee. Therefore a three year boarding commitment equates to one year of no boarding fees.
Please note that this fee relief applies to Boarding only, not tuition fees. Eligible boys are encouraged to apply for a number of Busaries and Scholarships available for rural and regional boys. More information can be found on Bursaries and Scholarships.
