Thank you for your interest in a Huntley education. If you have any questions at all about our enrolment process, scholarships or fees please contact us directly via email here.

Our Enrolment process gives you and your child opportunities to explore Huntley and get to know us before you make the decision to invest in a Huntley Education.

Step 1: Register with us

When you register with us by completing the form below we will send you a copy of our Huntley prospectus, Information about Fees and our full Enrolment form. We’ll also add you to our mailing list to receive our weekly Huntley News and recommend that you download the Huntley App and follow us on Facebook to really get a taste of life at Huntley.

Step 2: Come to Huntley

We welcome families for school tours and visits. Please contact Ingrid in our office here.

Step 3: Interview with Headmaster, Sam Edwards

It is important that Huntley is the right fit for you and your child. At this interview Sam will take a look at your child’s recent academic work and speak with them about their school life and their impressions of Huntley. This is a relaxed but important step for both parties.

Step 4: Acceptance Letter and Enrolment Fee Payment

We will be in contact within two weeks of your interview with notification of a place.
If your child is accepted into Huntley you will be required to pay the $550.00 enrolment fee in order to secure his/her place.

Betty Mayne Foundation

The Betty Mayne Foundation was established by her son David Mayne, who is an old boy of Huntley School. The Foundation is to commemorate the life of Betty Mayne who became a widow at the age of twenty nine. She was left without family other than her sons aged seven and eight. It was her sacrifice that enabled her sons to go to Huntley.

The Foundation is to assist parents who suffer hardship or to help them give their children schooling at Huntley when this would not otherwise be possible. Grants made by the Foundation are gifts not scholarships or bursaries which are won and awarded on merit.

Preference is given in cases:

  • When hardship is the result of sudden disaster, distress or anything untoward and unexpected; and
  • Where families have a connection or relationship with Huntley or have shown an interest in the school and its philosophy.

The value of the gift is $10,000 per annum for two years and is applicable to students entering the school as boarders in Year 7. The next award will be made for 2022.

The Foundation is administered by a Trust but expressions of interest should be made to the Headmaster in the first instance.

The tuition and boarding fees for each year are set by the Huntley Board of Trustees in November of the preceding year.
Our fees are all inclusive. These include morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, all stationery requirements, school trips, sports trips and camps.
