Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Local enrolment area

Check your address on School Finder to see if it is within our local intake area. Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

How to enrol

Apply online. If you are an Australian or New Zealand citizen or permanent resident you are eligible to complete the online enrolment application. You will then need to finalise the application at the school.

If you are not eligible or prefer not to enrol online, use the application to enrol (PDF 768.4KB) form. Please complete the form in English. A translated application to enrol may help you do this.

Out-of-area enrolments

As outlined in the department’s enrolment policy, our school may accept enrolments from outside our local enrolment area if places are available.

We will assess applications for non-local enrolment on a case-by-case basis.

Temporary visas and international students

The Temporary Residents Program has information about eligibility and the forms to complete an application.

Distance education

Distance education is an equity program for students who are geographically isolated or whose individual circumstances prevent them from regularly attending school. Students must meet one of the conditions in the Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible to access this program as a full-time student.

For more information about educational opportunities in rural areas, visit Rural and distance education.

Information for Parents

See the attached document here to answer some of the questions you may have in relation to the new enrolment policy.

You will need to complete the 100 point residential check and bring this evidence with the application form to our school.

Non-local enrolments

Our school has increased enrolments to the point where we are exceeding our capacity to accommodate students in permanent classrooms.

The impact of this requirement is that our school can not take non-local students from 2020 (siblings excluded) unless under exceptional circumstances.

The revised Department of Education Enrolment Policy implemented on 22nd July, 2019, can be found here which includes more details on the updated enrolment processess. Please click the following links for further information about our enrolment policies.
