If you need assistance meeting payments or have any questions, please call the School Office.

Withdrawal of a Student

Student(s) leaving at the end or during a school year:

Parents/caregivers whose child/ren leave Christ the King School during a school term or at the end of the school year must provide a minimum of one term’s notice in writing to the Principal or his/her nominee prior to a student leaving. This is applicable to both current and future students where enrolment acceptance has been confirmed.

Failure to provide a terms notice will result in fees being charged for the following term. Where the withdrawal occurs at the end of the year notice must be made in Term 3. Failure to provide notice in Term 3 will result in fees being charged for the first term of the following year. This is in recognition of the fact that the school is committed to maintaining the employment of teachers on the basis of known enrolments from one term to the next.

Fee Relief

We understand that some families may at times experience difficulty meeting their fee obligations.  It is the policy of SACCS that no student will be denied a Catholic education because a family is unable to pay school fees.

Financial Hardship Applications / Fee Remission: Fee remissions are reviewed each year for families experiencing financial hardship. Application forms are available from the Front Office. Once submitted a meeting with the Bursar will be arranged to determine remission and agree a payment plan.

For all Fee enquiries, please contact:

Christ the King School Office or email our Bursar at finance@christking.catholic.edu.au


We ensure school fees are at a level that maintains quality education for the children whilst having consideration for the financial capacity of the community we serve.
