Notice to Prospective 2024 Enrolments

Due to South Oakleigh College experiencing significant enrolment pressure the Department of Education & Training (DET) has capped enrolments. The College is only able to consider enrolment for students based on the following DET guidelines:

  • Students for whom South Oakleigh College is the nearest neighbourhood school*
  • Students who reside permanently at the same address as a brother or sister attending South Oakleigh College
  • In a limited number of cases only, a student may be enrolled on compassionate grounds, where there are significant family or individual circumstances

Please note that evidence of permanent resident address in the South Oakleigh College neighbourhood zone is required as part of this process.
