All state schools have a designated catchment area. Each state school's catchment area is determined by the equal distance point between neighbouring state schools. All students who live within the catchment area are automatically eligible to enrol in their local school, however eligibility criteria needs to exist to regulate out of catchment enrolments in new schools. Out of catchment applications are initially placed on a waiting list until In catchment numbers are established. Offers to those out of catchment are notified by mail in the second week of November.
An Enrolment Management Plan (EMP) is developed to ensure that the new school retains capacity to serve the community for which it is built. An EMP documents the eligibility criteria for students to enrol at the school who live outside of the school's catchment area.
Due to the impact of COVID-19 the school has made a few changes to the enrolment process.
