You will require this registration if you intend to operate an independent school. This registration applies to schools that operate during normal school hours for children between the ages of six and seventeen years.
This application can only be used to create a school that is in the primary to secondary range. Primary schools generally offer from preparatory ('Prep') to Year 6, whilst secondary schools generally offer Year 7 to Year 12. Some schools may be registered as a combined primary and secondary institution.
You should expect to spend a minimum 18 months preparing your application for registration. Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
