The John Berne School is a Congregational Special Catholic School in the Archdiocese of Sydney. Students from families who are prepared to support the ethos of the Catholic school and Marist tradition may be considered for enrolment. Priority is given to referrals from other Catholic schools, however special consideration can be given to students from other school systems.
Our enrolment application process is consultative, and information about prospective enrolments is gathered from a number of sources including previous schools and family with the completion of an Enrolment Enquiry Form. A psychological assessment may also be required. The School endeavours to assess a student’s suitability to achieve positive outcomes from the programs we offer at The John Berne School before an invitation to attend an enrolment interview is made.
Documentation required at the interview includes the student’s Birth Certificate and immunisation records, recent school reports, NAPLAN reports, psychometric assessments and medical information. A passport, with documents validating current visa status, is also necessary if the student does not hold Australian citizenship.
Enrolment enquiries for The John Berne School can be made to The Enrolment Counsellor at any time throughout the school year.
