Thank you for your enquiry about St Thomas of Canterbury College.

St Thomas’ is a Catholic School for boys from Year 7 to Year 13. The main point of entry is at Year 7. However, we do accept students at Year 9 and at other levels.

For your information, as an integrated Catholic Boys High School, the Ministry allow limited places (5%) for non-Catholic students. Please read the criteria for ‘Preference’ status (i.e. Catholic).  A ‘Preference’ certificate is issued and signed by a Catholic Priest and accompany applications for ‘Preference’ status. If you believe you qualify for a preference certificate and are unable to make contact with the Priest, please contact Elmarie Els at the school office.
