All new enrolments to Wallan Secondary College (excluding Grade 6 into Year 7 transition) are conducted by the Assistant Principal of the relevant sub-school.
A parent/carer interview is required at a mutually arranged appointment time. Student reports, assessment grades, birth certificate and a copy of a recent bill showing the residential address are required at the interview to determine the level of entry.
School requirements and information including uniform, books, lockers, code of conduct, parents/carers and student supports and courses of study are discussed with parents/carers and students before enrolment forms are signed. Interviews do not take place without a parent/carer in attendance. To make an enrolment enquiry please fill out the Enrolment Inquiry Form below.
In Victoria, children of compulsory school age are entitled to be enrolled at their designated neighbourhood school. The designated neighbourhood school is generally the government school within closest proximity to the student’s permanent residential address, unless the Minister or their delegate (such as the Regional Director) has restricted the zone of a school. In such cases, a child’s designated neighbourhood school may not be their nearest school.
Students are able to apply for a place at a school that is not their designated neighbourhood school. All requests from students living outside the school’s zone will be considered by the Principal at the preferred school.
If there are sufficient places, under the Placement Policy it is expected that government schools will accept all students of school age seeking enrolment at the school.
Where there are insufficient places at a school for all students who seek entry, students are enrolled according to the Placement Policy’s priority order of placement, which has six criteria. Schools ensure that all applicants eligible under a criterion have been offered a place before moving to consideration of the next. All students for whom the school is the designated neighbourhood school are guaranteed a place.
For further information on siblings, restricted enrolment and appeals see the Placement Policy Guidelines.
