Enrol at Gilson


Admissions at Gilson College

The process of enrolment into Gilson College requires that a prospective student meets the selection criteria. All applications will go before an Enrolments Committee where the suitability and/or readiness of the prospective student will be assessed and a written response will be forwarded to the family.

Please Note: A non-refundable $200 processing fee will be charged per enrolment application. This is separate to school fees which can be found here

The standard process involves applying 1-2 years before the preferred entry time. The major intake years for entry to Gilson College are as follows:

* Foundation (formerly Prep)
* Year 7

Most applications for these year levels are offered in June of the year preceding enrolment. Applications for entry at other year levels are welcome, however admission is subject to vacancies being available, as well as meeting the standard criteria for acceptance.

The College runs a Public Information Night once per term. Please click here to see dates and make a booking.
