King’s is a highly sought after school and as such we encourage early applications to increase the likelihood of securing a place for your child in your preferred entry year. Applications may be submitted - and are encouraged - from birth.
To learn more about enrolling your child at King’s, please select the button below.
Our main entry points at King’s are: King’s Early Learners (ELC), Reception, Year 6 and Year 10.
There is a high demand for places at King’s, so early applications are always recommended. Whilst there are waiting lists for most year levels we would always encourage families to submit an Application for Enrolment to go onto our waiting list.
Our enrolment list and our waiting list are reviewed frequently. When a vacancy arises, offers from the waiting list are made to ensure the balance and specific needs of the School are being met. Your level of priority and date of the application are also taken into consideration.
King’s does not offer a mid-year intake for Reception students. Enrolment for Reception commences at the beginning of each school year.
If your child turns 5 before 1 May, they can commence Reception in January while they are still 4 years old. If your child turns 5 on or after 1 May, they will commence Reception the following year.
In the Application for Enrolment form, you will see that it asks for two written family character references to be supplied along with your application form.
If you are an active member of a Church, we ask that you provide a written character reference from the Pastor or Faith Leader.
If you are not active members of a Church, we ask that you simply supply two references from people that know you well. This could be a family member, family friend or perhaps a work colleague. The reference is just so we have an understanding of you as a family.

King’s is a Christian School that strives to provide excellence in a range of academic, sporting and cultural programs in a caring Christian community. While all families are welcome, those who actively support the Christian mission and purpose of the community are given priority at enrolment.
"The purpose of Christian schooling is the educational and spiritual development of each child. Spiritual formation is an essential component of a Christian school education. In a Christian school, students are taught that humankind is made in the image of God. God wishes for us to be fulfilled in life and work, in relationship with Him, with each other, and with the world He made for us to enjoy. Christian schools aim to prepare students to live full, productive and purposeful lives, contributing to the wellbeing of their families, communities and as global citizens."

Our King’s Community has a culture of following Jesus. Some practical examples include:

- Faith studies lessons, daily devotions and bible reading
- In the Early Years and Junior Schools, grace and prayers are said before fruit time and before lunch
- Holy Week activities (prior to Easter)
- Weekly 'Bonfire' faith gatherings (previously known as Chapel); we gather as a community around what God is doing in our School
- Lunchtime prayer and activity groups
- Non-teaching staff buddies; all staff at King's have a pastoral heart and are involved in helping students to feel seen, heard and loved
All students and families are encouraged to be actively involved in the life of the King’s Community. Enrolment with the School demonstrates a commitment to growing in Jesus and engagement with the activities and traditions of King’s.

King’s provides students with a variety of opportunities to highlight their God-given abilities on various stages. Participation in sport encourages fellowship amongst students, across year levels and between staff, students, parents and others. It provides an opportunity for students (both players and non-players) to be visibly involved in School life. This extends to the wider King’s Community, as many of our coaches and volunteers are parents or past students who give back to the School in this way.
A number of weekly sports are offered and include basketball, netball, football, cricket and futsal.
King’s is part of the South Australian Christian Schools Sports Association (SACSA), which consists of 35 member schools to participate in a wide variety of sports within a Christian environment. SACSA competitions include AFL football, athletics, badminton, basketball, cross-country, esports, netball, soccer, swimming, table tennis, touch football and volleyball. Students represent the school after attending trials and trainings for selection.
King’s is part of the South Australian Primary Schools Amateur Sports Association (SAPSASA) - Salisbury East District. Some students are selected to represent the district at state competitions.

The King’s Early Learning Centre (ELC) opened in January 2020, influenced by the inspirational early childhood, educational work and philosophies from Reggio Emilia, Italy. The centre caters for children aged from three years to school-aged children. It shares the same philosophies, policies, practices and curriculum of King’s.
To learn more about our ELC, please select the button below.
While ELC is a potential pathway into Reception, enrolment in the ELC and enrolment in Reception at King’s are two separate entities. Whilst we encourage you to apply for both the ELC and Reception, we cannot guarantee acceptance into Reception based on your enrolment in the ELC.
We give an element of priority to children enrolled at the ELC to School and for children whose enrolment applies for both the ELC and School.
