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, camp and retreats, etc. We run a Catholic education College for ALL! Read the CSBB Enrolment Principles here.
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. So please complete the short Enrolment Enquiry form and we will contact you with the latest information for your relevant entry year. Note that waiting lists may apply.
