The Admissions office, which forms an integral part of the School’s Community Relations team, is staffed by the Admissions Registrar and an Admissions Assistant. Sarah Gatica-Lara, whose son Simon is a former student of Christ Church, has been the Admissions Registrar since 2006. As a past parent and member of staff since 1997, Sarah has a broad knowledge of the School and a first-hand understanding of the complexity of the decisions facing families when selecting the right school for their sons.

Priority of Admission
Christ Church considers a range of criteria when offering places to students.
- Family or other association with the School, including sons of former students
Consideration is also given to boarders, sons of Anglican clergy and to boys of parents who have recently relocated to Perth from interstate or overseas.
Completion of a formal application is necessary for a boy to be included on the waiting list for a particular year. However, it is not a guarantee of admission. A non-refundable fee applies to each application, which must be accompanied by a copy of a boy’s birth certificate. With the exception of full-fee overseas students the application fee is $150. For full-fee overseas students the fee is $300.
There is no formal entry test for Australian students, however, if a boy is already attending school, a copy of his last school report and any relevant specialist reports or assessments should be submitted. Details of the interests and activities of a student are also welcomed.
The School consists of the LW Parry Preparatory School for boys from Pre-Primary to Year 6 and the Senior School, which comprises students from Years 7 to 12. Both junior and senior schools are located on the main Claremont campus.
The main intake years in the LW Parry Preparatory School are at the Pre-Primary and Year 4 levels. In the Senior School, the main intake year is at Year 7. Boys are able to join the School in all other years subject to availability. Click here for Entry Year Calculator.
Boarders are accepted at all levels from Year 7 onwards.
International applicants from non-English speaking backgrounds are welcomed. Students are required to live at the School and need to demonstrate an adequate level of English language as a pre-requisite to enrolment. In order to establish a student’s level of English he has to undertake an assessment by Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS), an external testing organisation with offices worldwide. We encourage overseas families to consider enrolling their sons from Year 7 onwards and no later than Year 10. For further information, click here.
Number of Classes
The School has two classes per year group from Pre-Primary to Year 3; four classes per year group from Year 4 to Year 6; and eight classes per year group from Year 7 to Year 10. The number of classes in Year 11 and 12 varies according to need.
