What are the school fees?
There are three levels of annual fees, billed in instalments during Terms 1, 2 and 3:
- Annual Diocesan Tuition Fees set by Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese
- Diocesan Building Levy set by Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese
- School-based fees.
Annual tuition fees in Catholic systemic schools vary from Kindergarten to Year 12 but there are very significant discounts for your second and third child. In fact, there are no fees for your fourth and subsequent children.
In addition to the tuition fees, there is a Diocesan School Building Levy which is charged per family per year. There are also school-based fees which are set by each school.
What subjects does the school offer?
Gilroy offers a wide variety of subjects including Vocational Education, Creative and Performing Arts and extension subjects, that allow our students to reach their full potential.
When selecting elective subjects we recommend that students choose subjects in which they have a genuine interest, ones that they feel they are good at, that fit with their learning styles, that prepare them for future study and work.
Will my child need to bring their own device to school?
Yes. Gilroy Catholic College operates a BYOLT or Bring Your Own Learning Technology program.
Years 7 to 9 are required to bring an iPad as their learning device, Years 10 to 12 an Apple notebook.
How can my child travel to the school?
Where can I purchase the school uniform?
The uniform can only be purchased from our Gilroy College Uniform Shop. You can attend in person, or use the online ordering system. The shop is accessed via Gate B, and is in Demountable D18.
Do Catholic schools enrol children with additional needs?
We welcome students with diverse needs and aim to provide appropriate educational opportunities and support for students with additional needs. Once the school has evaluated whether a prospective student meets the general enrolment criteria, the additional needs of the student and the school’s capacity to meet them must also be evaluated.
Additional needs are varied and sometimes complex to identify and evaluate. Close partnership with parents is important to support the prospective student in finding what may be their best interests. In some instances school placement at this school may not be available or be in the best interests of the student. The Principal and Catholic Education's Director System Performance may seek a way forward by working with the family, if the family would like assistance.
Parents of children with additional needs are advised to approach the school more than a year in advance.High Support Learning Needs Centres

How are Catholic schools different to other schools?
Catholic schools are extremely popular. In fact, they enrol about 20 per cent of Australian school students.
Many parents say they have made their educational choice for reasons such as:
- Catholic schools are faith-based places that are grounded in Christian values
The Catholic faith is not just taught in Religious Education classes but is experienced within the total culture of the school. Christian values are up front and explicit. Catholic schools are intrinsically connected to the parish in which they reside and are an integral part of the mission and life of the Church.
- Catholic schools strive to achieve very high standards of education
Expectations of achievement and conduct are high. While there is a focus on the individual child, a broad curriculum caters for a wide range of interests and abilities.
- They are safe yet challenging places
Relationships are warm and friendly. Parents, students, teachers and pastors see themselves as working in partnership. The children belong to a community that really cares about each one of them.
