Welcome to St Thomas Willoughby!
As a member of system of schools known as Catholic Schools Broken Bay we seek to inspire hearts and minds to know Christ, to love learning, to use their talents to be the very best they can be.
Our principal, teachers, staff and parents all work together with the wider community to deliver authentic, professional Catholic education with care and compassion.
Our teachers are committed to the mission of Catholic education and apply evidence-based practice to support students to learn and to gain the confidence and skills to enable them to be involved in shaping their society.
DO YOU NEED TO BE CATHOLIC TO ATTEND A CATHOLIC SCHOOL?
No, your child does not need to be Catholic to enrol at a Catholic school. While preference is given to students of the Catholic faith, particularly if you are active in your parish, our schools welcome families from all backgrounds or faith traditions who share in our mission and purpose.
Catholic Schools Broken Bay has commenced the rollout of a K-12 enrolment program, providing parents with children in our system of primary schools a streamlined pathway through to our secondary colleges. Please refer to your school Principal for further information about which schools currently offer a K-12 enrolment pathway.
Catholic Schools Broken Bay Secondary Colleges
As one of the best primary schools on the lower north shore, enrolling at St Thomas Catholic Primary School is an excellent choice for local families.
Your child will receive real world learning and rich academic opportunities here. Project learning immerses each student in meaningful education and allows them to discover their talents. Supported by a dynamic, uplifting community, we are a school who cares about our families, students, staff and neighbours.
We embrace students of all backgrounds, cultures and religions in our school family. Children enrolled in our school do not need to be of the Catholic faith and will be welcomed into our culture of Catholic values.
You are welcome to come for a tour of St Thomas anytime. Please contact the office and we will be in touch to book a time for your private tour.
How to enrol
You can apply to enrol at any time throughout the year by completing an enrolment enquiry form.
We will then contact you to book a private tour of the school and meet our principal, Jenny McKeown.
Students are drawn from the suburbs of Willoughby, Artarmon, Northbridge, St Leonards, Naremburn, Middle Cove and Castlecrag. You will only receive one enrolment offer from one Catholic school to maintain fairness for all families in our area.
New Kindergarten applications are welcome throughout the year. Kindergarten open days are held in March the year prior to the student commencing school.
For Kindergarten enrolments, children must be aged 5 prior to July 31 of that year, as per NSW Education Standards Authority guidelines.
Families wanting to enrol in Kindergarten will be invited to meet the principal in May or June and can enjoy a tour of our school to get a feel for all that we have to offer your child.
Kindergarten applications follow the same enquiry process as above. Complete an enrolment enquiry form here and we will contact you as soon as possible
You can find current St Thomas school fees in the enrolment pack we will send you.
We are committed to making Catholic education accessible for your child, regardless of your financial circumstance. That’s why we aim to keep our fees as low as possible.
We will never exclude a Catholic student from attending our school because of financial hardship. If you would like to organise a payment plan to make it easier to manage your school fees, please contact the Fee Liaison Unit at the Catholic Schools Office firstname.lastname@example.org or email us at school.
