What to do if you reside out of catchment?

Out of catchment appeal process

Enrolment of students from outside the local catchment area will be managed to ensure that the total current and forecast enrolments do not exceed the school’s current built capacity and where applicable will ensure there is an even spread of students across year levels or class groupings.
Families may apply to be considered for out of catchment enrolment where they meet one or more of the criteria listed.

Enrolment criteria 

Students who reside outside the school's local catchment boundary who apply for enrolment at the school will be put on a waiting list in order of receipt of application. Where there is spare capacity, students may be enrolled from the waiting list based on the Out of Catchment Appeal Process.
