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 General Information


Enrolment in school

A student is entitled to enrol at the local school that the student is eligible to attend if their home is within that school’s local intake area. Parents may apply to enrol their child in the school of their choice. Acceptance is subject to the child being eligible to attend and the school can accommodate the child.

Enrolment cap

An enrolment cap for a school is established centrally, based on available permanent accommodation.

Demountable classrooms are not usually counted towards the enrolment cap.

Local Enrolment buffer

Within the enrolment cap, a number of enrolment places (the buffer) must be set aside for the enrolment of local students arriving throughout the year.

The size of the buffer will differ in each school based on historical data, enrolment fluctuations and on the number of families moving into or out of the area.

The size of the local enrolment buffer is set locally by the Principal and approved by the Director, Educational Leadership. It is reviewed annually and set in time for assessing applications for the following year’s enrolment intake.

Places in the local enrolment buffer are not to be offered to non-local students.

How to enrol 

Contact us when you’re ready to enrol your child in our school. You may need to attend an interview with the principal. There you can discuss any medical conditions or other special circumstances before your child starts school. We may also complete a risk assessment on the enrolment.
