A guide to enrolling

Our formal entry points

  • Prep (girls must turn four by 31 March in the year of entry)
  • Kindergarten (girls must turn five by 31 March in the year of entry)
  • Year 5
  • Year 7

We may accept new students at other Year levels at the discretion of the Head of School.

Once applications are received, families are invited to attend a mandatory School Tour around three years prior to the date of entry.

Ascham Old Girls and current families

Daughters of Ascham Old Girls and our current Ascham families will be given first priority for entry to either Prep, Kindergarten, Year 5 or Year 7, provided they apply by their daughter’s first birthday and adhere to the School’s enrolment procedures.

Overseas students

Ascham welcomes a small number of full fee paying overseas students who wish to study in Australia via a student visa.

Entry is available to overseas students in the formal entry years. Ascham will determine the Year group and courses appropriate for a student based on a compulsory visit to the School, examination, interview and information related to the student’s academic profile.

Get to know the School

Our School Tours provide an opportunity to learn about the Dalton Plan, tour our beautiful campus, meet our Head of School, students and staff as they share their insights into life at Ascham.

Once an application has been received, families are invited to attend a comprehensive School Tour, which is a mandatory part of the enrolment process. The School will extend an invitation around three years prior to date of entry.

For our country and overseas families, we welcome the opportunity to show you the School if you are visiting Sydney during term time. In addition to receipt of your application, the School requests two weeks’ notice to arrange a tour and organise for the family to meet relevant staff.
