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

If you live in our intake area and would like to apply to enrol at our school, start by submitting an online enrolment application. Online enrolment is currently only available for Australian or New Zealand citizens and permanent residents.

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

Online enrolment can also be used for out-of-area enrolment. Please note that out-of-area enrolment procedures are subject to the department’s enrolment policy.

Enrolment applications are finalised at the school.

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.

Transition from primary to high school

Our school offers a comprehensive transition program for students starting high school.  Details of our 2023 program are available on our Transition Year 6-7 page.

Non-local enrolment 

Currently we are unable to accept non-local enrolments due to the school exceeding our enrolment cap. This is in accordance with the DoE Enrolment Policy.

However, if you have compelling circumstances for consideration you may refer to the Non-Local Enrolment Procedure and Application.

Please contact the school if you have any queries in relation to enrolment.
