If a student wishes to enrol in an out of zone secondary school, selection for entry to the school should take place in accordance with the department's Criteria for Allocation of Points. These criteria are communicated to parents in the Starting Secondary School Brochure.
Students who do not gain a place at their preferred school still have a guaranteed place at their zoned high school. They will receive an acceptance pack from their zoned high school including:
a letter of welcome
notice of year 8 enrolment
a year 8 enrolment review form
The student acceptance pack includes information about the enrolment review process and timelines. You can only seek a review if there is additional information that was not provided in the original application which should be considered.

High School zone maps are available on the DECD website by clicking the following link:
In those cases where a sibling currently attends an out of zone school, enrolment is guaranteed. Where a child of a particular family currently attends a particular school, their siblings also have a right to attend that school. Sibling Rights apply for up to 12 months after the sibling has left the school.
