What are the fees?

Newhaven College’s fees are less than a third of comparable Melbourne Independent schools. Fees are inclusive of academic tuition, camps and excursions. For current tuition and bus fees, please contact Belinda Manning at 5956 7505 (option 1) or email belinda.manning@newhavencol.vic.edu.au

Do I pay extra for camps and excursions?

All our compulsory school camps and excursions are related to the curriculum and thus are inclusive in the fee structure. From time to time there are optional events such as a music camp, overseas trips and tours, World Challenge and the like which are not compulsory. These events are self-funded.

When is the best time to enrol?

For a seamless education we recommend enrolling at Prep. Enrolments are accepted across all Year levels with the main intake at Prep, Year 7 and Year 10. For information regarding current vacancies, please contact our Registrar, Belinda Manning, at 5956 7505 (option 1) or email belinda.manning@newhavencol.vic.edu.au.


How do I enrol?

The College Registrar manages all student enrolments. Step one is to submit an application form which can be found on our Enrolments page.


Are there waiting lists?

Yes there are waiting lists at almost all levels in the College, so it is important to submit an application form for your child so they are placed on the wait list. Siblings of current students take precedence on the wait list. The College Registrar will be able to help you with current vacancy enquiries. Please contact Belinda Manning on 5956 7505 (option 1), or email belinda.manning@newhavencol.vic.edu.au


Is there compulsory Saturday sport?

No there is no Saturday sport. We play mid-week sport against other schools that predominantly occurs during school time and does not require parent involvement.

Can I come and see the School?

Most definitely. We are always happy to welcome visitors. For a guided tour with our student leaders come along to a College Tour to view the school in action.
