Choosing the best college for your son takes time and careful consideration. We hope you have found this website a useful window into the life of Parade College, our philosophy, our diverse curriculum and our facilities.

As a Catholic Boys College specialising in boys’ education since 1871, it’s our aim to give your son a quality education from Year 7 to Year 12. An education that will help him grow into a balanced and well-rounded individual. An education rich in achievements and happy memories.

We recommend that you and your son visit our College to gain a first-hand impression of a Parade education. This section outlines the different events we hold for prospective parents and students, as well as our enrolment process and policy, fees, term dates, school hours and where to buy uniforms and books.

We look forward to meeting you and showing you what a Parade College education has to offer.

At the start of 2009 school year, Parade College opened a second campus at 8 Clifton Grove, Preston - the former site of Samaritan College.

This exciting change combined the advantages of a small campus education with Parade’s impeccable history of educating and nurturing boys for over 140 years.

Parade College Preston Campus offers a fully integrated curriculum, providing your son with excellent opportunities for academic, social, cultural and sporting growth. He will have everything he needs to flourish, with our unique approach to;

  • Pastoral Care
  • Support for gifted and special needs student
  • Engaging with the local community in a compassionate manner through service
