Enrolment Information

Thank you for considering St Paul’s Catholic College Manly as an option for your son’s high school education.

St Paul’s Catholic College Manly is a comprehensive Year 7 to 12 systemic College within the Diocese of Broken Bay. We cater primarily for Catholic students in accordance with the Diocesan Enrolment Policy. Parents who are supportive of the Catholic Church and intend to adhere to the religious practices, educational ideals and financial requirements of the College are eligible to apply for enrolment.

While our schools rely heavily upon the support of our families, Bishop Anthony has asked that at this time we do all we can to support those suffering immediate financial hardship.  It is with this in mind, that Bishop Anthony has approved new initiatives that have been implemented immediately, and are targeted specifically to families in greatest need as a result of financial stress.


If your son is currently enrolled in a local catholic feeder school or any Diocese of Broken Bay (DBB) Catholic school, you do not need to complete an Enrolment Form as we can transfer your records.

If you are applying for enrolment from a Catholic school in DBB, please complete this transfer of records form. In addition you will be required to supply all items included in the documentation list further below.


To apply for enrolment at St Paul’s Catholic College Manly, please complete an Enrolment Application Form and supply all items included in the  documentation list below. 


  • A copy of the applicant’s Birth Certificate
  • A copy of the applicant’s passport and visa or Australian Citizenship Certificate (if not born in Australia)
  • A copy of the applicant’s Australian Citizenship Certificate or Australian Passport (if both parents born overseas)

  • Any other documents you deem relevant to support your son’s application.

Early submission of an enrolment application is encouraged; offers of enrolment will commence for Catholic families approximately two years prior to proposed entry to the College.

Please note we do not accept Overseas Students.

An enrolment application does not guarantee a place, it notifies the College of the family’s interest. At the discretion of the Principal, applicants and their parents may be required to attend an enrolment interview. 

In the year prior to commencement at the College, we will schedule individual meetings between a member of the Senior Leadership Team and all enrolled applicants and their parents.

To further facilitate your son’s transition to high school, all students will attend a Year 7 orientation day.  An information package is distributed to all parents/carers of enrolled boys at our Parent Information Evening.

Please contact our Enrolment Registrar enrolments@dbb.catholic.edu.au if you require further information.
