Enrolling at our College

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​There are two categories by which a child can apply to enrol at Chancellor State College (below). Both require an Expression of Interest Form to be completed, along with relevant associated documents outlined. Once your application has been received it will be processed by the Chancellor State College Enrolment Management Committee and you will be contacted by email, unless otherwise indicated by parent/guardian, in due course.

Reside within the defined catchment area

Chancellor State College is a P-12 College consisting of two campuses, each with a unique and separate catchment area. Please refer to the College Enrolment Management Plan and submit an Expression of Interest with required supporting documentation to:
Secondary Campus: 

Reside outside of catchment

Students can apply to Chancellor State College through a merit selection process under the following categories:
  • Academic excellence
  • Sporting excellence via acceptance to Touch Football or Football/Futsal Academies programs. Entry is via trial with more information available here
  • ​Sibling enrolment. Students with siblings actively enrolled at Chancellor State College will be considered for enrolment pending available spaces
Please ​​submit an Expression of Interest and any additional information to: 
Please note that there is a non-refundable processing fee of $50 that applies for all new out-of-catchment applications. This fee is payable at the time the application is submitted and is not a guarantee of acceptance. If applying for multiple programs, the fee is payable only once. 

Enrolment Interviews

The relationship between the College and the family is a partnership aimed to provide students with every opportunity for success and to transition effectively to the next phase of learning and or to training/employment. There is an expectation of continued parental involvement in their child's education.

The school expects that students will be dressed in the correct uniform and be ready to commence work on their first day at school. Once your child has been accepted into the College, you are required to attend an enrolment interview prior to commencement. Students are to attend this meeting, with at least one parent/carer. This will take place with a member of our Leadership team. 

Decision on enrolment

Outside of Catchment Enrolment Applications

Please note that the submission of an Expression of Interest for enrolment does not guarantee a place at the College until the application has been approved by the relevant Campus Principal.

Where the Principal forms a preliminary view that an application will not satisfy the conditions of enrolment, applicants will be notified in writing via email. The applicant may respond to the Principal's preliminary view by making a submission to the Principal, no later than seven days after receiving the preliminary view letter.

If no submission is received, the Principal's preliminary view will be treated as the final decision and no further notice will be provided.

If a submission is received, the Principal will consider the submission and make a final decision, notice of which will be provided to the applicant as soon as is practicable.  There is no internal review of the Principal's decision.

In-catchment Enrolment Applications

The Principal is responsible for all decisions on enrolments and may request any additional documentation and conduct other enquiries deemed necessary to satisfy eligibility criteria.
