Year 7 Transition

The application process for Year 7 enrolment is determined by the Victorian Department of Education (DE) 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 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 DE 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 DE’s website under School zones.
