BDC Enrolment Policy

Bishop Druitt College is a comprehensive co-educational K-12 school providing education underpinned by Christian values and operating within the policies of the NSW Education Standards Authority.

Characteristics of the Student Body

The school has 1020 students of whom 590 are in the secondary school and 430 are in the primary school.  There are approximately equal numbers of boys and girls throughout the school.  As BDC is a comprehensive school, the students come from a wide range of backgrounds, including language backgrounds other than English and a number of students with special needs. 

Reflecting the demographic complexion of the local area, we have seen an increasing enrolment of both new arrival refugee and Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander students. Additionally, the school periodically enrols overseas students, either as exchange students or full-fee paying overseas students. 

Policy Statement

  • For all applications, consideration will be given to the applicant’s support for the ethos of the school, date of application, siblings already attending the school and other criteria determined by the school from time to time.
  • Once enrolled, students are expected to support the school’s ethos and comply with the school rules in order to maintain their enrolment.
