How to Enrol


Silkwood is an accredited early childhood to High School located in a stunning bushland setting in the Gold Coast Hinterland.

Silkwood has developed The Silkwood Way, providing an alternative to traditional schooling that embraces teaching the Australian Curriculum in a way that enhances every child’s learning adventure.

Part of our uniqueness is that we are a small school.   This means that places are strictly limited.  Not all applicants will be offered an interview, as there are generally many more applications than available places.

We invite interested families to submit an Application for Enrolment to secure their place on a waiting list. For information about waiting lists, please phone (07) 5655 0300 or email
