Trinity Anglican College accepts students into all year levels as places become available. But we do have specific entry intakes in our 3-year-old program, Kindergarten, Year 3 and Year 7 .
Our biggest intake is into Kinder each year. We accept around 72 students into Kindergarten.
The next intake is in Year 7. This has been a popular way to enter the College if you have your children at stand alone primary schools. However, with the growth of the College, the number of positions being offered in Year 7 are reducing each year. This is because we guarantee our current students a place in the senior school and offer the remaining positions to families outside the College community.
Students are admitted into other year levels as positions arise.
In a nutshell, our entry years are:
Early Learning Centre – 3-year-old program
Albury Campus (located in Thurgoona) – Kindergarten, Year 3 and Year 7.
Early Learning Centre – Children should turn 3 years old by 31 March in the year they attend our 3-year-old program.
Trinity Anglican College – Children should turn 5 years old by 31 March in the year that they start school in Kindergarten (NSW).
Trinity Anglican College is an open entry school.
At the discretion of the Principal some applications may be given preference on the basis of criteria such as:
• Having a sibling currently or having had a sibling previously at Trinity Anglican College;
• Transfers from interstate or overseas schools similar to Trinity Anglican College;
• Transfers from other schools of the Anglican Schools Commission;
• Children of full-time permanent teaching staff;
• Children or grandchildren of former students of Trinity Anglican College;
• Children of Anglican priests or pastors
• Potential to perform at an exceptional standard academically or in other areas of the school program; and
• Returning students who were offered priority at the time of departure.
