Enrolment Procedures

Please find information about how you can enrol at South Oakleigh College.

Enrolment for Year 7

The Enrolment (Transition) Process for children commencing in Year 7 is managed in partnership between the secondary and primary schools with the process commencing early in Term 2 each year.

A Grade 6 Transition Co-ordinator is appointed as the teacher responsible for liaising with, and providing relevant transition information and forms to, Grade 6 students and their parents/guardians.

After transition information is distributed to Grade 6 Students and their parents/guardians by their child’s primary school, families will then need to make the choice of a suitable secondary college for their child to attend.

To assist with this important decision, a Year 7 Information Evening for prospective families is held at South Oakleigh College in the first few weeks of Term 2. The time and date of which is advertised extensively in the newsletters of many local primary schools, on a billboard outside the college and is also listed on our website calendar.

Families apply in writing to their primary school  by completing the Year 7 Application for Enrolment form provided in the information package. The completed Application Form is then returned directly to the child’s primary school before the closing date.

Towards the end of Term 3, the Primary School will then notify families of the results of their placement requests for their child. The Secondary Colleges cannot provide details of placement to families seeking this information.
