Frequently Asked Questions
I/we are not Catholic. Do you take applications from non-Catholics and what are our chances of being accepted?
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, camps and retreats, etc. We run a Catholic education College for ALL! You can read the detailed CSBB Enrolment Principles.
For students from our Priority Feeder Schools and other CSBB primary schools: While we do give students from our Priority Feeder primary schools priority entry, this is however subject to availability and possible enrolment windows for planning purposes (as well as any special needs requirements), so we do require you to complete our Enquiry form to register your intentions and reserve a place as soon as possible, ideally by Year 3-4.
Generally all applications should be submitted for Year 7 by July 31 while students are in Year 5, although we will accept applications at any time where places are available. Please complete the Enquiry form and our Registrar will contact you with the latest information for your relevant entry year. Please note that waiting lists currently apply for most year groups.
There are ‘kiss and drop’ zones at the main College entrance in Woolcott Avenue (Gate A) or Windarra Crescent (Gate B), Wahroonga, or at the other College entrances in Yardley Avenue (Gate C) or Unwin Road (Gate D), Waitara.
Most students travel by train to Waitara station then take the short walk down Yardley Ave to Gate C, or from Normanhurst Station to Gate D (Unwin Rd). Some travel by bus to the top of Woolcott Ave, Wahroonga, or to Unwin Rd or Yardley Ave, Waitara.
Free public transport is available to students who live more than 2.0km (straight line) or 2.9km (walking) from the College. Application forms available on request. We also have bike racks for the growing number of students who ride bicycles to school.
