The Rainforest School is accredited to teach Prep to Year 6.

The Enrolment Process for 2024 has been finalised, however situations do change and we encourage you to contact us if you would like to register your interest for enrolment

Enrolment Priority:

      1. Families who share and commit to the philosophies and values of the school
      2. Prep enrolments

Prep will provide the usual entry point into the school at the commencement of each school year. Children who are five years old, or who turn five on or before 30 June in that year, are eligible to start Prep.

In addition to our hierarchy of priority, we may also consider:

        • Commitment to maintain the long-term enrolment 
        • Commitment to developing strong ties between home and school
        • Age and gender balance
        • Siblings of current students
        • Children of The Rainforest School staff
        • Class sizes and places available in the relevant year

Enrolment at other year levels may be considered provided places are available for commencement at the beginning of each school semester. The Principal will refer to the Enrolment Projection Data as the basis for decision-making.

An Offer of Enrolment will be determined by the School Principal with consideration given to the mission & vision of the school, its philosophies and values, the well-being of its student body and the school’s human, financial and physical resourcing capacities.

Each year we receive many more Registers of Interest than the limited places available. Prospective students will be shortlisted, guided by the Enrolment Priority and three stages of the Enrolment Process outlined in our Enrolment Policy.  Please note, that families who have submitted an early Register of Interest may not be shortlisted. Acceptance of an Enrolment Application and Enrolment Interview does not a guarantee an Offer of Enrolment. 

Essential dates for 2025 Enrolment:

        • Register of Interest closes on 7th June 2024
        • Offers of Enrolment will be communicated end of July 2024
        • Transition Program – Term 4 2024 (Prep students)
