How to Enrol


Places are limited to allow students greater opportunity to identify their strengths and work to improve the areas in which they lack confidence.


Enrolments are accepted during the year, however, in selecting any student to fill a vacancy, we give special consideration to young people and their families where there is a demonstrated commitment to the school and its underlying philosophy.


There are a number of simple ways to apply for a place at NGC:

  • Call us on 4343 5000 for an interview. You will be asked to complete an initial application and pay a non-refundable enrolment fee of $50 on arrival.

NG Central selection criterion looks at 8 key areas:


  • Desire to work in a trade area such as hospitality, automotive or primary industries

  • Social disadvantage or isolation

  • Age

  • Academic level

  • Financial disadvantage

  • Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander

  • English as a second language

  • Learning and behaviour difficulties/disabilities 


Participants will not be enrolled at NGC without attending an interview. Where possible, we encourage both parents to join their young person for the interview. We will ask questions about previous schooling and why you want to attend our school. We will ask about any relevant health history or behavioural incidents.


People who participate in the interview with an openness and willingness to embrace change have the best chance of gaining a position within the school. An interview is not a guarantee of enrolment.

While there are no school fees, there is a non-refundable $50 enrolment fee and $280/term for Year 9 and 10 students, and $405/term for Year 11 and 12 students for materials being payable at enrolment acceptance, then at the end of each term for the following term. Fortnightly direct debit plans can be arranged. 'Scholarships' are also available for those who are motivated in their learning, and experiencing poverty or other extenuating circumstances.
