Enrolling Your Child
Thank you for your interest in applying to enrol your child in a Western Australian public school. Enrolment is a two-step process. Parents first lodge an Application for Enrolment with the school. If your child is eligible for enrolment, you will be provided a General Enrolment Form. The school will notify you of the outcome of your application as soon as possible. The information you have provided will be used by the school once eligibility is confirmed.
An eligible student whose place of residence is within Wanneroo’s local-intake area is guaranteed enrolment. Students residing outside the local-intake area are accommodated where possible. Enrolment at a school in the compulsory primary years does not guarantee future enrolment at a specific secondary school including one in the vicinity of the primary school, however you are welcome to apply for consideration for enrolment by completing the Application For Enrolment form at the bottom of this page.
It is highly recommended not to purchase items such as uniforms until you receive confirmation of enrolment.
Documentary evidence, including court orders relating to your child, may be required to support information supplied. Principals may consult with the Regional Education Office where sufficient evidence may not have been supplied.
The Department’s Enrolment Policy can be found at www.det.wa.edu.au/policies.
Application Forms to Enrol in:
Out of Area Enrolment
If you are applying to enrol your child from outside the local-intake area your child is not guaranteed a place. Once the number of local-intake area enrolments has been confirmed and Wanneroo has spare capacity and appropriate programs, applications from outside the local-intake area for the first round of offers will be assessed after the Application Closing Date. The priority for students who live outside the local-intake area is in the following order:
- A child who is accepted into an Approved Specialist Program.
- A child who has a sibling enroled at the school for that year; this does not include a sibling who has gained enrolment through an Approved Specialist Program.
- A child who lives closest to the school (not closest to the boundary of a local-intake school).
However you are welcome to apply for consideration for enrolment by completing the Application for Enrolment form.
Additional enrolment information specifically written for parents is on the Schools and You website at http://det.wa.edu.au/schoolsandyou
Please refer to the Schools Online website for a map of the local intake area. http://www.det.wa.edu.au/schoolsonline/home.do
Year 11 Course Selection Information
Year 10 students will be focusing on future career paths and options for when they have completed Year 12. As a young adult and senior school student, the future can suddenly seem very imminent.
Commencing week 9 in term 2, Year 10 students will have the opportunity to sit with a counsellor and discuss future options in schooling and career.
Students will be allocated an interview time and letters will be distributed with details for student interviews.
Where possible, we encourage parent/s to come along to the interview as the amount of information can sometimes be overwhelming for students. You can have a look at our Helpful Links under Student Services for some helpful links in preparation for choosing possible career pathways to discuss at the meeting.
Please download and complete the form/s above. Alternatively, these can also be obtained from our reception desk. An appointment should be made on 08 9206 6555 to sit with an Associate Principal who will go through your enrolment and help your child with a timetable and course selection. Prior to your interview you will need to complete a:
- General Admission Form (above) and
- Relative year Course Selection Sheet, available from reception.
Please return these to Administration for processing before your appointment, along with a copy of your child’s birth certificate, up to date immunisation records and, if not enrolling in Year 7, a copy of your child’s last school report.
If you are going into Year 11 or 12, please read our Senior School Handbook prior to your interview, and the Associate Principal will go into more detail with you in person.
