SCHOOL TOURS

Experience all that Solway College has to offer by visiting us for a tour of our special school.  See our learning in action, meet our friendly staff and students, and explore our beautiful school grounds.
 

ENROLMENT PROCESS

If you are interested in enrolling your daughter at Solway College please click on the 'enrol now' button at the top of this page. We will then make a time for you to visit the school to have an enrolment interview with our principal, Mrs Tupaea, and view the school facilities at any time during the school year. You may also wish to visit us on our annual Open Day (early term two).

Please note that, as Solway College is primarily a boarding school, day girl places are very limited and currently we have a lengthy waiting list. If you are interested in being considered for a day girl place at Solway College, your enrolment application and enrolment interview will need to take place prior to the 9th of June 2020, therefore we recommend you complete the enrolment form as soon as possible.  As an alternative we do offer negotiated boarding arrangements for local girls, which requires girls to board in our hostel for a minimum of two nights per week.  Negotiated boarding is a great opportunity to experience some of the opportunities and benefits that boarding offers.  It is worth discussing this with the principal.

Traditionally we have girls entering at Years 7 and 9 but enrolment can take place at any year level.


If you would like us to contact you to discuss your daughter's enrolment at Solway College, please do so.  We look forward to answering any questions that you may have, and welcoming you and your daughter into our very special school.
