Enrolling at MGSC

Frequently Asked Questions about Placement at Year 7

Below is an overview of the enrolment process for transitioning from Year 6 to Year 7. Applications for Year 7 Placement are accepted in mid May for the following year.

Information for parents/carers on moving from primary school to secondary school can be found on the Department of Education and Training website Moving from primary school to secondary school: information for parents.
When applying to MGSC the steps may vary depending on where your child currently attends school.
This fact sheet gives an overview.

Moving from a government primary school

Your transition will be managed by your current primary school. They will provide the Year 6 to Year 7 Placement Information Pack (government schools) which includes application forms which should be returned to your primary school.

Moving from a non-government (includes Catholic) primary school or home schooling

Many of our local Catholic schools will manage your child's transition including providing the relevant Year 6 to Year 7 Placement Information Pack (non-government schools) and request applications be returned to that primary school. If this is not the case or your daughter attends an independent school or is home schooling then the pack and forms can be downloaded from Moving from primary to secondary school page and the application returned directly to MGSC.
