The Department of Education provides guidance on starting school to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations. This information has been tailored to students who are already enrolled and attending a college.
Our college zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au and hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones. Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our college, which is determined on the basis of the students primary residential address.
In circumstances when our college may not be able to accept all applications due to existing or future capacity concerns, our college will manage enrolment applications in accordance with the following priority order of placement:
- Students for whom the college is the designated neighbourhood college
- Students with a sibling at the same permanent address who are attending the college at the same time
- Where the Regional Director has restricted the enrolment, students who reside nearest the college
- Students seeking enrolment on specific curriculum grounds
- All other students in order of closeness of their home to the college.
Please note: Permanent place of address is the address a student permanently resides at with a custodial parent or legal guardian at the time of enrolment. Proof of permanent place of address will require a family to supply appropriate evidence such as utilities bill, contract of sale or lease agreement.
You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School Zones.
All parent/guardians and future students who are eligible for enrolment are required to attend a pre-enrolment interview with a member of the Leadership Team. This interview outlines college expectations of enrolment and is an opportunity to express areas of concern, interest and achievement.
After this interview Leadership will determine the success of the application according to student eligibility and will issue formal documents to be provided for your submission.
To secure a Pre-enrolment Interview, please fill out the booking form below and attach all required documents. Once submitted our friendly administration staff will contact you to select an interview time that suits you and your schedule.
