Within Zone

The Department of Education and Training (DET) encourages students to attend their neighbourhood school. Consequently, Frankston High School has a designated neighbourhood zone.


Our school zone is available on www.findmyschool and hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones for 2020 onwards.

Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.

DET provides guidance through the School 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 DET’s website under School zones.


If you have a question about school zones call Victorian School Building Authority (VSBA) Hotline on 1800 896 950 or email: vsba@edumail.vic.gov.au

An enrolled student residing in the zone must live with his/her parents. Staying with a relative or friend does not qualify guardianship and is not a criterion for enrolment unless supported by the relevant papers endorsed by the Family Court of Australia.

Please be aware, the requirement for eligibility is permanent residency within the zone. The intention of the neighbourhood zone policy is for residency to continue for the duration of the child’s enrolment at the school. Residency must be taken up and authenticated by a member of the Principal Team or representative before the enrolment procedure can commence.

Proof of permanent residence within the school’s designated neighbourhood zone will be required for all applications seeking a place on residential criteria. It is the responsibility of the family to provide satisfactory evidence to the school to demonstrate their permanent residency. A private rental agreement (between a landlord and tenant) will not be acceptable.

Applications for transfer to Frankston High School from nearby schools on residential criteria may not be granted.

At all times course choices from Year 9 onwards may be limited since priority will be given to currently enroled students.
