Come and join our vibrant Essington school community.

The Essington School welcomes new students any time throughout the year by offering a staged entry program (subject to availability of year group).

All new families are encouraged to book a school tour with our Heads of School, to learn about our programs and how we are the best fit for your child.

For those families relocating from interstate or overseas, the School can arrange a virtual meeting.

You can also register for one of our scheduled Open Days in 2023. We will get in touch with you closer to the selected event date, providing you with more information.

  • Thursday, 25 May 2023 - 9:00am to 10:15am
  • Thursday, 10 August 2023 - 9:00am to 10:15am
  • Thursday, 7 September 2023 - 9:00am to 10:15am

Essington was created by the community, for the community and we understand that life in Darwin can be a transient one, particularly for our Defence families. Our Defence School Mentor program assists all Defence Families with their transitions both into the School and on exit to their new posting location.
