Year 5 Enrolment - Senior School Early Entry
Across all years our Islamic faith drives the pursuit of excellence and a steadfast commitment to quality education. Unity Grammar is an Australian School meeting the needs of our Islamic community.
The step from Junior School to Senior School can be a daunting experience for students and parents alike. It is for this reason we have created a Year 5 early entry platform for students to help with this transition.
The Year 5 Enrolment caters to parents wanting their children to be schooled within the Islamic Faith and settled within the structure of a school with friends and an understanding of the culture before entering Senior School.
By enroling your child from Year 5 or even earlier with Unity Grammar they will have the ability to make new friends and settle into our methods of teaching whilst they are still within their formative years, this makes the transition into Senior School far less stressful.
Our placements for Year 7 can at times be limited however we do provide a preference to existing students over students moving from other schools, by your child being part of our Unity Grammar family for Years 5 and 6 or perhaps even longer, they will surely have access to a placement above any others.
If you would like more information on our Year 5 enrolment process please contact us by completing the form below and one of our enrolment team will be in touch. Thankyou.
Year 5 Student Opportunities
Unity Grammar believes that student leadership allows students to learn about social justice as they participate in activities that highlight the roles and responsibilities of being a part of a diverse community.
From Year 5 students have the opportunity to be part of exciting opportunities within our Junior School curriculum like our FLL and FTC Robotics teams and also they are eligible to apply to our Scholarship program
