Grade 1-6 Admissions

Applying to Grades 1-6 at Mulgrave

Here you will find information about the application process for students entering Grade 1 to Grade 6.

About our Junior School Programme:

  • Mulgrave’s G1-6 classrooms are located on the top two floors of our main building and are part of our Junior School division and are enhanced by access to a variety of specialist spaces. These include a science lab, maker space, and language classrooms. 
  • Grade 6 has a ‘mini-Middle School’ experience as they rotate through three classes on the second floor each day.
  • In Grades 1-3, we have three classes of 20-22 students with two fully-credentialed teachers per class.
  • In Grades 4-6, we have three classes of 21-22 students with one fully-credentialed teacher associate per grade.
  • Admission into these grades is only possible if there is attrition as none of our Junior School grades is an intake year.

Step 4: The Follow Up

Submit documents - Please access your dashboard to learn about the rest of the steps in the application process. 

Reference Letter - To support your child's application, we recommend that you supplement your application with a letter of reference. It can be professional or personal. We ask that you only submit one letter per application.

Confidential Teacher Observation Form - This form is very helpful for the Admissions Committee, but we understand that many teachers, particularly in the public schools, will not complete it. Please let us know if that is the case, and we can determine a suitable alternative.

Step 5: Get to know you better...

Individual Assessments for Applicants to G1-3 - All students applying to Grades 1-3 with fully completed applications will be invited to an individual assessment meeting with an admissions officer. Once we know how many places we may have available for the following year, we will invite a select group of candidates to a small group assessment led by our teachers.

Group Assessment for Applicants to G4-6 - All students applying to Grades 4-6 with fully completed applications will be invited to a group assessment event where they will take an online assessment, have a personal interview, and participate in a group activity. A follow-up interview and teacher assessment will take place for select candidates once we know how many places we might have available for the following year. 

As application deadlines pass, online submissions can no longer be accepted for those grades. Please contact Admissions at 604-922-3223 for more information.
