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.

Transitioning to Year 7

Transition into High School used to be a one day visit with an over load of information. Most students coped with being thrown in feet first, but some didn't. To ensure that all students start High School in a positive and beneficial way, we have developed an intensive transition program. This involves a number of school visits, family/parent BBQ and information sessions and student/peer mentor activities.

Each year group has its own Year Advisor. These advisors are appointed previous to enrolment and are an intigrual part of the transition program. They remain with the year group from year 7 until year 12 and are responsible for all year group organisation, student welfare, excursions, personal matters, parent liasing etc.
