Catchment area

An Enrolment Management Strategy applies at Chancellor State College. Please refer to the enrolment management plan and the catchment map to determine eligibility for enrolment.

Please note:

  1. The primary school catchment boundary is different from the junior and senior secondary catchments.

The enrolment management strategy is governed by the following general guidelines:

  • Only children who live permanently within the school’s enrolment boundary area will be entitled to enrolment at this school. This applies to year levels 1 - 6.
  • Students living outside the zone will be permitted to enrol at prep in accordance with the standard ‘in order of waiting list’ policy. However, parents who reside outside the enrolment boundary must sign a form to indicate the understanding that prep enrolment does not guarantee enrolment in year 1 the following year.
  • Students who meet the criteria for enrolment will be notified within 7 days of application.
  • Prep students who meet the criteria for enrolment will be notified in writing during or before October of the prep year prior to commencement of year one.
  • Students who reside outside the guaranteed enrolment boundary will be notified within 7 days of application to attend prep or years 1 - 6.
  • Acceptance of a place in the school must be made in writing within 7 days of notification by the school.
  • The Principal reserves the right to sight proof of residential address when applying for enrolment at the school.
  • The policy may be reviewed/altered at any time in keeping with the statement of purpose.

Exemptions to this plan

The Principal can make exemptions for enrolment under the following conditions.
  • Students presently enrolled at the school and living outside the zone are not affected by this plan and have the right to remain enrolled. This exemption applies to the individual only. 
  • Siblings of previously exempted students will need to apply on their own merit.  Priority will be given to siblings of students who are currently enrolled from outside the catchment area who have been previously granted exemptions however from 2015 this cannot be guaranteed.
  • Students presently enrolled and who move to an area outside the zone will not be affected by this plan and shall have the right to remain enrolled.
  • Students living outside the zone will be permitted to enrol at the school if our special education class has been identified by the district process as being the nearest coded program. Any siblings shall be eligible for enrolment in regular class groups.

These are the only conditions under which exemptions can be made.
