The application process for Year 7 enrolment is determined by the Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) and is initially undertaken by the primary school your child attends during Grade 6. It is not possible to apply for a place in Year 7 before your child is in Grade 6. Families residing interstate and overseas when their child is in grade 6 are advised to contact the school to make a direct application.
Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones. Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address. The Department provides guidance through the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations. You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School zones.
If your child is currently enrolled in a Victorian primary school, the application procedure is as follows:
1) List the schools you would like your child to attend in preferred order (two choices).
2) The primary school will then forward your completed application to Frankston High School.
3) In August, the primary school will notify Parents/Carers of the results of their application. If your child does not attend a government primary school, they may not receive the Application for Year 7 Placement form. Please request this form from your child’s primary school.
Please note that Frankston High School is not able to disclose the results of the application process to Parents/Guardians prior to being informed of the results by their primary school in August.
