Admissions Policy

There are Junior and Secondary School intake years

 

The admissions policy of Radford College is non-selective: offers of places do not depend on criteria such as academic, sporting or co-curricular performance, where a student lives, their current school, their religion, or community involvement. 

The College offers equal number of places to boys and girls at its main entry points and endeavours to maintain a gender balance in all year levels. To this end, the College maintains separate girls' and boys' waiting lists. 

The overarching admissions policy is that enrolment offers are based on the interval between date of birth and date of registration, by gender.

Priority is given to children of permanent staff, siblings, children of members of the Collegians Association (former students) and children of practising Anglican clergy.

Parents wishing to enrol their children at Radford College must be prepared to support the policies, rules and discipline of the College.
 

Scholarships

In 2018, the Directors of the Radford Foundation were honoured to award their first full two-year scholarship to a new student commencing Year 11 in 2019. The terms of the Scholarship recognise a student who demonstrates outstanding achievement and community involvement but whose personal financial circumstances prevent them from enrolling at the College.

The Foundation will cover 100% of the Tuition and Capital Levy fees for two years (Years 11 and 12), and up to 100% of compulsory College related costs.

The Foundation expects to offer more scholarships in coming years. Those interested in applying are encouraged to check the website for details early in Term 1 of each school year. Please note that applicants will initially be asked to complete and submit a two-page application form. View a sample of the form here.

Submission of this form and documents listed below will be required, once applications open.

    1. This scholarship application form, including the 200-word Personal Statement
    2. School reports for previous two years, NAPLAN reports for Year 7 and Year 9 (if available)
    3. Passport-sized photo.

Short-listed applicants will then be required to complete a financial statement. The successful applicant will be asked to verify financial statements and provide referees.

The successful applicant will be selected in time for them to take their place in the Year 11 orientation and induction sessions at dates to be confirmed in the year prior to the scholarship commencing.

If you have any questions about the application form or process, please email Foundation Administrator Cassie Roberts foundation@radford.act.edu.au or telephone 6162 6200.

International Students

Radford College does not have the necessary registration to enrol international/overseas students. A child needs Australian citizenship or a permanent residency visa in order to attend Radford College.
