Enrolment Scheme

All students who live within the home zone described below (and shown on the map above) shall be entitled to enrol at the school.

Starting at the intersection of Aviemore Drive (included) and Highland Park Drive, travel east along Highland Park Drive to Bradbury Road. Travel north east along Bradbury Drive to and north along Botany Road (179, 66 and below included). Travel north east along Ridge Road (204, and below even numbers only included), south east on Picton Street (1-127, 78-128 included), east on Uxbridge Road (odd numbers only included) and south along Beach Road (125 only included). Travel south west along Selwyn Road (all addresses included), south west on Sale Street, south on Cook Street and Minerva Terrace. Continue south on Cook Street, west along Union Road, south on Botany Road (both sides included to and including Andrew Road then odd numbers only to Cascades Road) to and west along Cascades Road (196 and above, even numbers only land Lochend Place included) and north along Aviemore Drive, back to the starting point.

Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.  This will enable the board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.

Out of Zone Enrolments

Each year the board will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. The board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.  The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.  

Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:

·         First Priority: This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary.  

·         Second Priority must be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.

·         Third Priority must be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.

·         Fourth Priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.

·         Fifth Priority must be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school.

·         Sixth priority must be given to all other applicants.


If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, or fifth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989.  Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.

Applicants seeking second or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
