There are three levels of annual fees, billed in instalments during Terms 1, 2 and 3. These include Annual Diocesan Tuition Fees and the Diocesan Building Levy which are both set by Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) and School-based fees.
No student who meets the enrolment criteria will be refused enrolment or disadvantaged because of a family’s financial circumstance and genuine inability to pay fees.
Families experiencing financial difficulty or hardship are invited to speak confidentially with the school principal, Mrs Jeanette Holland about fee relief, extended payment plans and/or a financial scholarship.
Existing private and public transport routes for St Agnes students will continue.

No, however, as a Catholic school we have a strong religious dimension, and people of other faiths who wish to enrol, must be able to support and fully participate in the religious activities of the school. Please also refer to our enrolment policy for further information including enrolment priorities where spaces are limited.
The senior learning space is a new contemporary and state of the art learning facility that will serve the needs of our inaugural HSC class. We are working very closely with current students, teachers, Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) and an architectural company to design a space that is both functional and fluid to engage both students and teachers in the delivery of purposeful and agile learning.
A major refurbishment including the purchasing of new furniture, electronic displays and establishment of ‘inquiry hubs’ ensure we deliver a fresh, engaging and student centred learning space fit for our seniors. As part of the plans we will also incorporate an exclusive senior common room and functional cafe where students can gather to socialise, plan and study before, during and after school.
HSC subjects and courses may be provided as face-to-face, online and blended learning and/or a mixed mode of employment/study options. This will be determined by the needs of each student, resourcing and NSW Educational Standards Authority (NESA) requirements. The requirements for each course will be detailed in the Subject Information Handbook.
Students will also require the use of their own personal laptop at school to supplement their learning. Both Windows or Mac operating systems are acceptable.
St Agnes is committed to ensuring a comprehensive range of courses are offered, and that they meet the needs and interests of students. We will offer multiple learning pathways for students including HSC, a wide range of vocational education courses including performing arts as well as early entry into university courses.
Subjects and courses will be outlined in the Subject Information Handbook which will be made available shortly. The Handbook will also provide details about course expectations, accessibility requirements and options so each student can discern their pattern of study.
