Enrolment Instructions

To create an enrolment application, please click the button below and follow the steps:

If a vacancy is available, the representative will arrange for testing. Currently, Caulfield Grammar School only recognises testing results from Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS): www.aeas.com.au

Following the achievement of satisfactory AEAS testing results, an offer of a place at Caulfield Grammar School may be made. The cost of the AEAS testing is to be paid by the family. An application to the school and encouragement to undertake the AEAS test does not imply that Caulfield Grammar School will make an Offer of Enrolment.

Upon acceptance of placement, payment of the requested fees is to be made within the required timeframe.


Australian Educational Assessment Services – Testing

All approved Overseas Representatives have a signed agreement with Caulfield Grammar School to promote the school and to provide prospective parents with promotional material (including prospectus, fees, subject choices and accommodation options). The Overseas Representatives provide an introduction to the school and ongoing assistance with the application procedure.

The signed agreements between Caulfield Grammar School and Overseas Representatives are reviewed annually. Please refer to the list of our authorised educational agents on this website.

If a vacancy exists for the relevant year level that the student is applying for, the student will be encouraged to undertake an Australian Educational Assessment Service (AEAS) test, either at the Overseas Representatives’ office or at Caulfield Grammar School should the student be visiting.

All costs associated with the AEAS testing are to be paid by the family/ student. Please refer to the AEAS website for indicative costing and description of testing. Students applying from mainland China should apply directly to AEAS to undertake the testing procedure.

AEAS is the only recognised testing procedure for Caulfield Grammar School for students currently studying overseas. The AEAS test examines Mathematics, General Knowledge and English capability (verbal, written, grammar and comprehension) and involves a personal interview.

The education agent or AEAS will advise the family and student of what to bring to the testing procedure. Passport photo and current school reports are always required.

An English preparation course – English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS) – may be recommended for completion prior to the commencement at the school. Any requests for ELICOS to be undertaken will be a condition of the Offer of Enrolment.

An application to our school and encouragement to undertake the AEAS test does not imply that Caulfield Grammar School will make an Offer of Enrolment.
