Danebank welcomes new enrolments across all grades, depending on places.

Annually intakes are in Pre-Kindergarten, Year 3, Year 7 and Year 11. Entry into other year groups depends on availability.

We encourage parents to submit their daughter's enrolment application well in advance of her starting date, as Danebank accepts applications from birth. Enrolment enquiries are managed by our Registrar.
We warmly welcome new families to our school and encourage you to discover our Junior and Senior Schools through a tour. We look forward to meeting you and to assisting parents in enrolling their daughter.

Our enrolment process aims to provide efficient and helpful guidance to parents, while ensuring our schools’ policies are upheld.

We seek to provide access to the school for as many students as possible. However, due to the demand for places at the school, submission of an application should not be considered a guarantee of a position at any time. An application received is security of a position on our waiting list for the requested year. It will be processed in the order it has been received relative to other applications.

Therefore, if a place is not available at the time and year requested, and with the approval of parents, Danebank will continue to carry the application forward for future years until a suitable place may be available.

If a place is available, students and their parents/carers will be invited to attend an interview. The interview helps to establish that parent expectations and student needs are clearly compatible with the philosophy and offerings of the school and that the school has the capacity to meet those expectations and needs.

Danebank provides a wide range of opportunities for gifted and talented or exceptional students, challenging high potential learners and supporting them in their growth. Our students are offered opportunities to develop their talents beyond the classroom, with programs in music, drama, debating, sports, leadership, outdoor education, and service to others. This is all supported by the strong Christian culture of the School. Christian clubs, programs and activities are also offered.

Gifted mathematicians entering Year 7 can be selected for the Danebank accelerated Mathematics class which gives students the opportunity to move through the mathematics syllabus at a faster rate, culminating in Extension Mathematics HSC courses. Acceleration for exceptional students can also be offered in relevant Senior School subject areas.

We believe that girls achieve their best in an all-girls environment where ALL activities and opportunities are for girls and there are no gender restrictions. Danebank girls are encouraged to applaud their classmates for their successes and to always be mindful of the needs of others. Our girls forge great friendships that are life-long.
