Our year 7 students come to us from over 40 different primary schools.

The Department of Education's placement policy provides guidance on managing and accepting enrolments. MGSC has been able to accept enrolments from beyond its neighbourhood zone in recent years. Find my School assists with identifying if you live in zone. An out of zone application is not required with an enrolment application at any year level.

Your child is guaranteed a place at the school they are zoned for, as shown on the Find My School website. This means that if your child lives within the school zone, they must be offered a place when seeking enrolment. To find the school you are zoned for (referred to as your local school) visit www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au

Going to a school outside your zone You have the choice to seek enrolment at a school that is not your local school. Your child should be offered a place if the school has sufficient accommodation. If the school has limited accommodation, applications are considered using the priority order of placement. The priority order of placement prioritises out-of-zone siblings and then students in order of closeness of their home to the school.

In exceptional circumstances, a student may be enrolled in a school based on compassionate grounds. Family and student privacy will be maintained when considering applications on compassionate grounds. To find out more, visit www.vic.gov.au/how-choose-school-and-enrol
