School Places is an education placement website that allows parents to find and claim a discounted place for their children at a wide range of Australian private schools. All places are listed by the participating partner school and cover Early Learning through to Year 12. Discounts range up to 30 per cent — but placements go quick.
School Places is a free service that has been designed to allow parents to search for private school places in their local area. This involves a simple drop-down interface that lets you select a school grade level, enrollment year and home suburb. You can also narrow the search to just Boys', Girls', Coed or Boarding schools.
When a parent finds the right school or an attractive discount, they can claim a place for their child directly through the web app. Their placement is then guaranteed — provided you "satisfy the partner school’s enrolment criteria".
Available discounts range from 10 per cent to 30 per cent for 1 to 6 years. (That's still a damn sight more than what public schools cost, but if you want to go down the private route, we're not here to argue.)
The website cautions that places are limited and fill up quickly each year. So if you find a place that suits your child, snap it up asap. You can visit the website here.
