Applying to enrol at Linuwel School

Thank you for your interest in Linuwel School. We hope that you have had a look through our website and read the ‘Information for Parents/ Carers’. This will have given you an initial idea of the nature of our education and community.

If you are interested in applying for a place for your child, then please book a school tour via our website. For more information, please contact our School Registrar. There are a couple of tours in the first half of each term for families interested in a place for the following term or later. On the tour you will meet our Principal and find out a bit about the curriculum from preschool through to Class 12 as you walk through the school viewing the grounds and facilities.

You will also need to attend an information session which is run one evening following the tours, which can be booked on the same form when booking your tour date. At this session you will learn more about Linuwel School’s values and the ethos of a Steiner school. It is our expectation that our families support the ethos of the school, and you will be able to get an understanding of what this means for our families at the information session.

Please be aware that children need to be fully vaccinated to be enrolled in our Preschool program as this is a government requirement.

The next step is to complete the Application Form for your child. You will need to attach your child’s most recent school report, any relevant health information and reports, and permission for us to contact your child’s existing school. Applications will be reviewed by Class Teachers and Realm (faculty) Co-ordinators and interviews will be offered to some applicants. Priority is given to siblings of existing students and staff member’s children, children moving from another Steiner school, and children whose family demonstrates commitment to supporting the ethos of Linuwel School and Steiner education. We will ask for written permission to contact your child’s current school for a reference. If your child has any additional learning needs, we may ask you to take part in a second meeting to explore how we could meet your child’s needs and support them to have a positive experience at school.

Successful applicants may be offered a place in the class for the following term, or a place on the waiting list for that class. Unsuccessful applicants are welcome to re-apply at a later time.

If your application is successful, our Registrar will ask you to complete an enrolment form and advise you of the next steps.
