Entrance

All boys wishing to enter College Street from schools other than St Ives or Edgecliff Preparatory Schools need to take an entrance assessment and, if successful, be prepared to come for an interview.

Assisted Places

The Headmaster and Trustees are committed to enabling as many boys as possible attending Grammar irrespective of their financial circumstances.

In addition to the full academic and music scholarships awarded each year (see Admissions/Scholarships), the School is now able to offer a limited number of assisted places to boys whose performance in the Entrance Assessment for Form I and at interview have resulted in the offer of a place, but whose parents are unable to afford the full fees. The amount of fees remission will be assessed by the Bursar on the basis of financial statements submitted by parents.

Form I (Year 7)

Application is open for Form I, 2022 and future years. Applications for Form I, 2022 will close on Friday 16 April, 2021. The Entrance Assessment test will take place on Wednesday 5 May, 2021 (covid-19 restrictions permitting).

Please print and complete the Application Form. Forms may be scanned and emailed to: admissions@sydgram.nsw.edu.au or mailed to:

Academic coaching for the assessment is not necessary, in fact we strongly discourage it. Boys will be asked to complete English tasks (comprehension and creative writing) and Mathematics questions (Number, Patterns and Algebra, Measurement and Data, Space and Geometry) including basic operations and problem-solving. All tasks are set and marked by the School.

Boys from Sixth Class at St Ives and Edgecliff will be accepted into Form I (Year 7) at College Street unless, in the opinion of the Headmaster, after consultation with the Preparatory School headmaster concerned, the boy is thought unlikely to flourish at the Senior School.

For enquiries regarding entry to 2022 or future years, please contact the Admissions Office at: admissions@sydgram.nsw.edu.au.

Entrance Assessment/Forms II to V (Years 8 to 11)

Entrance assessments for Forms II to V are held in early August each year.

The entrance assessment for boys wishing to enter Forms II to V in 2021 were held on August 4, 2020. Applications for entry in 2022 will close on July 20, 2021.
