*Please note, if you wish to make an application for a place at the school commencing this year or in 2023, 2024 and 2025, we recommend that you firstly speak with a member of our admissions team (see contact phone numbers and email above) prior to making an application to check availability and the likelihood of gaining a place.
Step 3 – Interview
Students and parents will be invited to attend an interview with a member of the Educational Leadership Team within 3 years of the nominated year of entry. Copies of a student’s most recent school report, NAPLAN results and any other relevant information will be requested prior to the interview.

Offers are made following the interview process. The Principal forwards a Letter of Offer to successful applicants. Please note, St Margaret's is a non-selective school – there are no tests to sit and offers are not made based on previous academic reports; however, offers are made at the sole discretion of the Principal.
Step 5 – Acceptance of Offer
