All recuits looking to enrol at Vanguard Military School need to submit an online Expression of Interest form and attend a compulsory Orientation Evening with a parent or caregiver. This is to gain an understanding of the school and its requriements, courses on offer, the Vanguard Military School’s educational system, rules and regulations and what our expetations are for every recruit.
To attend an Orientation Evening, you will need to make a booking as the school can only cater for a limited number of enrolments at one time. To book to to the “Enrolment” page on this website and fill out the Expression of Interest form.
Once the form has been submitted, an email will be sent to you with a link to the booking website for the Orientation Evenings.
At the Orientation Evening, you will be advised of the school curriculum, meet the staff, learn about the rules and regulations and how the school is run. Each Orientation Evening involves a basic numeracy and literacy test and a multi-stage fitness test. These assessments have no influence on enrolment, but are designed to assist with identifying any possible barriers to learning, class placements and any special needs that might exist.
Each recruit will also have a formal interview with a member of staff. This will give us a clear indication of anything the recruits are struggling with, need extra attention with, what their goals are and what they want to achieve at Vanguard.

Every recruit will need tto bring a ininum of one parent/caregiver to the evening as it is important you both receive the information.
