SP acts as an agent for partner schools and your application for a school place is made directly with them. All places are subject to the terms and conditions and policies of the partner school and you should read these before proceeding with your application.

We reserve the right at our discretion to decline any application made through the Site.

When you make an application through the Site you warrant to us that;

  • you are at least eighteen years old; and
  • you have the legal authority to enrol the child for whom the application is made in the place you have applied for; and
  • you understand that by completing the application process on the Site that no legally binding agreement to offer a school place has been entered into and that you must contact and satisfactorily complete all the relevant enrolment procedures prescribed by the partner school.
  • you will follow through your application diligently and comply with all instructions generated from the Site or from the partner school to whom you have applied for a place including making contact with the partner school, attending interviews, ensuring the child attends assessment interviews, provide the partner school with all other information it requires to assess both you and the child for whom the application is made, complete such enrolment forms and documents as the partner school shall require and paying to the partner school such amounts as the partner school shall require to secure the applied for place.
  • you will only apply for one place per child via the Site. In the event that you are unsuccessful in that application you may then apply for a further place via the Site.

Unless expressly stated otherwise in the offer by a partner school, any discount published on the Site refers to a discount off the standard tuition fee for that year and class level, not off any additional fee charged by the partner school such as fees for school camps, composite fees, uniform fees, building levies or similar.

Application for a place at a partner school is not available for a child currently enrolled or previously enrolled at that partner school.

No application for a place offered on the Site may be made for any child who has previously been the recipient of a successful application through the Site at that partner school or any other partner school.

A partner school may in its absolute discretion refuse an application made through the Site if the child is already the subject of an application for enrolment at that school.

If you want to change any application details you must contact SP at info@schoolplaces.com.au

To the maximum extent permitted by law, we are not liable however caused (including negligence) for any loss of data, loss of income or profit, disappointment, or indirect, incidental or consequential loss arising from your use of the Site.

Unless agreed otherwise in writing by the partner school places offered on the Site may only be claimed by Australian citizens or persons with permanent residency status in Australia.

The Site operates under the laws of the State of Victoria and the Commonwealth of Australia and you agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of the State of Victoria and the Commonwealth of Australia. In the event that any proceedings are instituted in any Australian Federal Court you agree that such action shall be determined by that Court sitting in Melbourne Australia and you consent for any action instituted in any other place in Australia to be transferred to the Court sitting in Melbourne.
