Applications to 1st Year 2024/2025 will be accepted following the Annual Admission Notice posting for a period of three weeks.

The Education (Admissions to School) Act 2018 (commencement February 2020) provides for a five-year period for current waiting lists to expire, allowing schools to honour commitments they have already made to parents.

The expiration of Dominican College’s waiting lists for entry into 1st Year commenced in the school year 2021/2022 and is inclusive of the subsequent years 2022/2023, 2023/2024, 2024/2025 & 2025/2026. Applicants whose names are on the waiting list will receive an offer of a place, if available, for the year of entry applied for as per our Admissions Policy and Annual Admissions Notice.

My daughter’s name is already on the waiting list for 2023/2024. Do I need to complete another application for admission?

When can I put my daughter's name down for secondary school?

Can I put my daughter’s name down at any time during the year?
