Thank you for considering Aquinas College as your child’s preferred school for secondary education. A State Integrated Catholic College, Aquinas, has a 95% Preference enrolment. If places are available, there is up to a 5% allocation for Non-Preference enrolment.
Aquinas College is a Catholic, co-educational, Year 7-13 secondary school. We are currently at our maximum roll of 750 students, exhibiting some pressure at certain year levels. We generally receive more applications than positions available for enrolment each year. We have a transparent process for enrolment selections as outlined in our Enrolment Scheme, in line with the College’s Enrolment Policy.

Preference enrolment is granted by the Parish Priest. Preference requires that the child meets one of the following criteria:
Parents/Caregivers of Preference learners must obtain a Preference of Enrolment Certificate signed by the Parish Priest.
Attendance Dues are a charge for attendance at an integrated school and are one of the main sources of income for maintenance or upgrade of existing buildings, plus meet the costs of servicing loans incurred for this purpose. The Attendance Due is a compulsory charge invoiced from, and payable to, the Catholic Integrated Schools Office. It is administered and collected by the Hamilton Diocese Office. Dues are not tax deductible. The 2021 Attendance Dues for Year 7/8 students is $444 per student, and for secondary students $888 per student.
The Board of Trustees has responsibility for governance including Finance, and as such, has set the College Voluntary Contribution at $1200 per annum per student, with a maximum of $3000 per annum for three or more students from the same family. This is a voluntary contribution, but the great majority of families have accepted the Board’s vision to resource and staff the College generously to enable us to deliver the best outcomes for our students and community. These contributions support curricular and extra-curricular resources, as well as some of our necessary non-teaching staff. Any family who’s financial or family circumstances are such that the full school voluntary contribution is too difficult to meet, should not be deterred from applying for enrolment.
For further queries regarding payment of Attendance Dues or Aquinas Voluntary Contribution, contact the school’s Finance Administrator, Mrs Mary Walton, on email@example.com
