Frequently Asked Questions

How many students attend the College?

There are currently approximately 830 students enrolled at St Leo’s. 

Where is St Leo's located?

St Leo’s is a located on six hectares in Wahroonga on Sydney’s Upper North Shore. Just off the M1 Motorway exit and near the Pennant Hills Road and Pacific Highway junction (Pearces Corner), we are only a short walk from both Waitara and Normanhurst train stations.

I/we are not Catholic. Do you take applications from non-Catholics and what are our chances of being accepted?

St Leo’s is very proud to be an inclusive community with students and staff from a wide range of backgrounds, including non-Catholic and non-religious backgrounds. However, what we all share is a commitment to common ‘catholic values’ – as emphasised in our mission statement to develop ‘Catholic-valued’ women and men of conscience.

While we do give priority to students from our CSBB priority feeder schools, we welcome applications from students/families with catholic and non-catholic backgrounds. If accepted into St Leo’s however, it is expected that all students fully participate in all College religious activities including the Religious Education Curriculum (7-12), College Masses, camp and retreats, etc. We run a Catholic education College for ALL!  Read the CSBB Enrolment Principles here.

How do I apply?

Simply complete the online Enrolment Enquiry form and we will contact you to advise of availability for the year group you are interested in, answer any questions and proceed with enrolling if you wish. Note St Leo’s does not charge any application or acceptance fees. 

When should I apply for Year 7?

The simple answer is ‘as soon as possible’ as we are nearing maximum capacity and now receiving applications up to 2030.
For students from our Priority Feeder Schools and other CSBB primary schools: while we do guarantee offers of enrolment to students from these primary schools, they are subject to enrolment windows (and any special needs requirements), so we do recommend completing our short Enrolment Enquiry form to reserve your place as soon as possible, ideally by Year 3-4.
Generally all applications should be submitted for Year 7 by mid-year while students are in Year 5, although we will accept applications at any time where places are available.
