Starting at St Paul’s

We look forward to welcoming new students to St Paul’s Collegiate School.

You will find helpful information about getting started at St Paul’s below and on the Parents webpage here and in our Orientation Information Booklet here.

Timetable and calendar

The School runs a ten-day calendar, parents can access the timetable information here. The digital online calendar is available on our website and has day-to-day events and term dates here.

Device information (BYOD)

All students are required to bring a device with a full keyboard. Find out more about St Paul’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) here.

School uniform

You can purchase school uniforms (new and second-hand) from the School Shop, located in the foyer of the Student Centre. It is best to make an appointment for a uniform fitting before the summer break so that uniforms can be ready in time for the start of school. For more information, see here for information on boys' uniform and here for information on girls' uniform. To make an appointment, visit the School Shop website or email School Shop. If you are looking for second-hand uniform, there is a Facebook Group you can join called St Paul’s Collegiate School Second-hand Uniform here.


Year 9 stationery packs are distributed at the beginning of the year and charged to the student’s school account. Senior students may also purchase required stationery from the School Shop. Lists are distributed in each class.

Finding your way to school

There are a number of transport options available for students to get to and from St Paul’s. More information can be found here.


We hold an Orientation Day for Year 9 boys and a Meet and Greet for new girls in November. Information is sent to families closer to the time to invite them to the events. At these events, students meet their housemaster and other students in the house.

Entrance testing – Year 9s

All Year 9 students with a confirmed enrolment or an upcoming interview to attend St Paul’s, are required to attend a diagnostic entrance-testing afternoon. We will use the results, along with the information we receive from school reports, to assist with Year 9 class placement.

Girls starting at St Paul’s

We understand that changing schools midway through high school is a big decision. It’s a step that many girls take each year with pleasing results. At the start of each year, new girls go to a camp at Tihoi to get to know each other and experience team-building moments. In the first few weeks of school, the Year 11 boys and girls divide into groups to undertake challenges and activities. By the end of these experiences, the girls feel welcomed and part of the school.
