Admissions Policy

All candidates for entry to the school have to undertake a common entrance examination and have an interview with the appropriate Heads of Section.

Preference is given to students with good academic potential. The school will look for evidence of good character and sound moral values. Every candidate is expected to make the best use of the academic; social; artistic and sports opportunities offered by the school, which will enrich and strengthen the candidate's skills.

There are no automatic admissions to St George’s College North. However, priority will be given to children of Old Georgians and to those who have brothers or sisters already enrolled at the school. Similar preference will be given to first language English speakers and students from the International Community.

At the transfer stage from Kindergarten to Primary and then to Secondary priority is given to students already attending St George’s. However, attendance in Kindergarten or Primary does not mean automatic entry to the following school section.
