The Catholic Education Commission of Western Australia has a Policy Statement on Student Enrolment. This Policy contains a priority order that is used to select students for whom an offer of enrolment will be made. The priority order contains 8 categories and the top 4 of these categories are listed below. Due to the high demand for places at Sacred Heart College, where not all Catholic students can be offered a place, we are unable to consider non-Catholic students for mainstream enrolment.

  • Catholic students from Catholic Primary schools with a Parish Priest reference.
  • Catholic students from non-Catholic Primary schools with a Parish Priest reference.
  • Other Catholic students from Catholic Primary schools.
  • Other Catholic students from non-Catholic Primary schools.


Note: The College also includes the following priorities when making offers of enrolment.

  • Every effort is made to accept brothers and sisters of students currently enrolled but no guarantee can be given.
  • Every effort is made to accept sons and daughters of College employees but no guarantee can be given.
  • Every effort is made to accept the sons and daughters of ex-students of the College but no guarantee can be given.
  • Priority is also given to the admission of students requiring entry to the Education Support Department (ESD) for those with varying disabilities and learning difficulties.

Please note that geographical proximity to the College and length of time the application has been submitted are not taken into consideration. 

 Enrolment Procedures

The selection process for new families wishing to enrol their child into Year 7 is outlined below:

  • New Families
    • An 'Expression of Interest' Form can be lodged at any time before the child completes Year 4.
    • Current reports, Parish Priest Reference Form, Naplan results, birth certificate and baptism certificate will be requested at the end of January, two years prior to entry.
    • Families will receive a Parish Priest Reference Form. This is an essential document for the enrolment process as outlined above.
    • Near to the time of this interview a tour of the College facilities will be available.
    • Offers are then sent out at the end of Term Two.
    • Offers must be accepted by the notified date or the offer will lapse immediately unless alternative arrangements have been arranged with the Registrar.
  • Education Support Department
    • Education Support enrolments follow the same procedures as listed above. Enrolment priorities for the Mary MacKillop Centre are dependent on the educational needs of the individual student and the College's ability to meet these needs. Non-Catholic students may gain a place in our Mary MacKillop Centre if there are vacancies.
    • Students applying for admission to the Education Support Department will be required to attend an interview with the Principal and Head of Education Support and are asked to bring the latest Psychological Report to the interview.
  • Siblings
    • Brothers and sisters of students currently enrolled or accepted for enrolment will go through a slightly different process with their interview being conducted later in the year.
